Bio:
The artist has received many awards & distinctions, including the Overture to the Cultural Season Scholarship. Her art is part of several international collections, including Tallahassee Memorial Hospital in Florida. She maintains two studios: One on the island of Tortola; and another near Miami, Florida. Both are open by appointment.


Artist Statement: 
Color has been an important concern throughout my career. The vibrant palette I use is influenced by time spent living on a Caribbean island, where the light is intense, rendering color its most brilliant.

Informed by visual and cultural elements, I use a contextual approach to color, shape and space. I often employ surf vocabulary as titles to the work. In this way, the concept of surfing is used metaphorically.

In early 2008, I began an ongoing body of work, The Paradise Project. The work alludes to escapism, perception, disillusionment and longing.

Creative expression is the poetry of life- a record of one’s dedication, obsession, meditation and reason.
