Being born in Nassau, Bahamas I incorporate lots of color and movement in my art. 


As a child I was entranced by the verdant green of the island that is surrounded by brilliant turquoise seas and white powder sand. It is filled with intense yellow elder National Flowers, red flaming poinciana trees, purple bougainvillea, crimson hibiscus flowers, and pink flamingoes.


My favorite time of the year is always Christmas and the  New Year's holidays because of the whirling parades of our National Junkanoo Festival.

I recall the the bright colorful costumes made of fringed crepe paper, undulating in the streets to the beat of the drums and cowbells, and the bellowing horns...


Those memorable flashes of color and movement constantly invade my art as abstract representations of the home I love. 


I like to use splashes of pure acrylic color along with objects that enhance and intensify my message. Also, I have always been an avid photographer and lately started combining the two disciplines. I use the camera as a "collector" of subject matter and usually add to the image with paint, photoshop or other materials. I consider myself an Abstract Expressionist Artist.

 I also look at current social and political events and express my feelings thru my art.


I hold degrees in art and photography and have won several awards, including Best of Show. I have work on display and in collections in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Budapest Hungry, and Nassau Bahamas.
