Rainbow Toucan

“Rainbow Toucan”, Silk, 30″ x 40″

 

My life as an artist arrived when I was around 9 years of age while growing up in the tropical paradise island of St. Lucia.

 

Blue Morpho & Frangipani

The place where I lived was totally surrounded with mango trees, butterflies and birds.

 

Happy Parrotfish

“Happy Parrotfish”, Silk, 20″ x 25″

 

I swam in the Caribbean Sea which was just a two minute walk from my home and could not believe the magic that I felt just watching fish of every colour swim under the wooden jetty.

 

Maria Tree Frog

“Maria Tree Frog”, Silk, 20″ x 25″

 

The light would sparkle as they danced to the shimmering waves. I could not take myself away from that experience and spent most of my days fishing and swimming.

 

Macaw in Mango Tree

“Macaw in Mango Tree”, Silk, 30″ x 40″

 

This experience influenced my life so much, that all my art today is a result of having such an exciting childhood.

 

Paradise Clownfish

“Paradise Clownfish”, Silk, 20″ x 25″

 

I want my work to express those magical moments I experienced and still feel today. The silk medium allows for wonderfully vibrant colours and for lighting effects almost as I had seen them all those years ago.
