DescriptionShe is the old, creepy woman, living alone in an old house, somewhat secluded from the rest of the village. It is said that she sleeps during the day and comes out at night. As evening approaches, she sheds her skin and hides it, becoming a glowing ball of fire. She spends the night roaming the cane fields, farms and lonely streets, searching for her next victim.It is believed that this creature was the product of French families bringing the vampire tradition to Trinidad. Apparently, these vampires mingled with the African slaves and the soucouyant was created.
Rebecca Foster, San Fernando Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Rebecca Foster created her first painting when she was 4 years old. This large, abstract oil painting hangs in her studio as a testament to her love of fine art. She made her debut in 2008 with a solo exhibition at More Vino, Trinidad then in 2010, bid farewell to Bahrain, her home for one year, with a sold out, one night show. In 2011, an experiment with line, form and colour bloomed into a vibrant Trinidad Carnival series. A series that has helped define Rebecca’s artistic style and has revamped her interest in the water colour medium.
