When I was eight, I had an art challenge from my neighbor and friend, Rodney McKenzie, since then I knew I wanted to be an artist.
I see myself as an impressionistic artist. My medium of choice is oil on canvas and I utilize a wide range of subtle colors to create a soft, sensitive quality in my paintings, which are a synthesis of portraits, landscapes and street scenes and although subtle, often carry a hint of social commentary.

I am the fourth recipient of the former Life of Jamaica Art Scholarship.
A keen observer of my surroundings, I receive inspiration from the beauty of Jamaica's people; its landscape and seascape; its architecture. It is important for me to keep in touch with what is taking place in the Art World and get inspired by viewing the work of other artists.
Through my paintings, I intend to continue to bring vital features of Jamaican life, as I see it, to the attention of my fellow Jamaicans and the world at large.
