I am a girl with two homes, Barbados and London.  

 

​​Inspiration may come from a beautiful photo I find online, from holiday snaps or a walk through wildflowers. I love exploring the rugged east coast of Barbados and am at my happiest diving through the waves, with salt in my hair.

 

This year sees me add new collections that are taking me in a slightly different direction.  I am currently exploring land and seascapes, unsurprisingly, these are also inspired by growing up in Barbados.

With "Waves" I want to catch that moment just before you dive through the rollers coming in along Barbados's South East Coast. "Trees", "Birds"and the "Tropical Illustration collection" is inspired by a trip that I made to Huntes gardens in August 2018.  The birds, the plants and the colours all take me back to warm afternoons spent under a canopy of palms and blue skies. The Illustrations in"The Garden collection" and Floral still lives are my interpretation of the sheer joy that is the English Garden.  

I currently live in London with my husband and two girls. 

I hope you enjoy my work and I welcome commissions and collaborations. To enquire about working together or to commission a painting or illustration, please get in touch here.
