I love to paint from the heart the things which inspire me, and hope to somehow touch the hearts and lives of those who I share my work with. I believe I was born to create Art and to write poetry. These creative forms come naturally to me, and I'm thankful that God has given me these abilities. It is my desire to not only share with you God’s wonderful creation through my art, but also help you to feel his love, so that you may desire to know him.
I was born into an artistic family. My artistic ability was discovered by my father when I was two years of age, and he encouraged me with lots of drawing and painting books, which occupied me for many hours each day, and gave my talent the foundation it needed to grow. From the age of 11 years, and throughout my teen years I had won a series of National Art Competitions and then went on to participate in National Joint Art Exhibitions put on by The Art Society of Trinidad and Tobago, alongside many of the country’s now renowned artists.
My artistic pursuits were interrupted for some time due to post graduate studies, marriage and raising a family.I later took a Master Art Diploma Course with ICS International; passing with distinction; and started giving art classes to young children, including my own. They went on to win many National and International, Children’s Art Competitions. Their success motivated me to become involved in art as my life’s career. I participated in a twenty-week artist's Webinar with professional, american, landscape painter, Johannes Vloodius.
I love working in a variety of media but at present, acrylic is my main medium of choice. My preferred subjects include landscapes and seascapes, wildlife and nature, birds, horses, flowers, and figurative paintings that evoke expression and emotion.
I have been pre-selected to appear in Volume V of International Contemporary Masters – an annual juried Art Publication published by World Wide Art Books. I have also been invited by The Agora Gallery of New York to submit my portfolio for exhibition consideration.
I am happy to be part of the family of artists here at Fine Art America. FAA is a very secure site for purchasing art online, and they offer the artist a complete and professional service so that gallery quality products can get into the hands of the buying public. .
