Artist Statement

 

I am driven to create art! I create mixed media visual art that, for the most part, is commentary and provides critique of social realities. 

 

 It is also an ongoing exploration of identity and place. At times it is introversive. I respond to what is on my mind and I intend to present my perspective.

While based in Bermuda, I respond to its topical issues- with the understanding that they reflect universal postcolonial themes.
