I was born in the US but after I completed a contract with the Peace Corps, I rented a studio in the rural Blue mountains of Jamaica to practice my art full time. My love of nature stems from what I observe in my surroundings and this forms the basis for my compositions. I'm known for both mysterious paintings of Jamaican mountain ranges as well as paintings that amalgamate costumed, fragmented female forms, abundant floral bursts and the ambient surroundings. I usually combine disparate forms that convey visual anomalies. I build up layers of thin paint on smooth surfaces as I ponder how to describe atmosphere and control the illusion. Ultimately my themes are concerned with the connective tissue between mother earth,
human kind and mystery. My focus is on female identity, our past and our present and our blended identities.
