Industry Arts
Occupation Artist
Location Christiansted, St. Croix
Introduction I am a visual artist living and working in the Virgin Islands. I have always lived on an island. Born in Tobago, I have lived in St. Thomas, St. Croix, Manhattan and Cuba. I am interested in things that are provincial and domestic. I used to paint figures and symbols. While living in Havana I started throwing parties on buses, asking neighbors to exchange objects and making animations of the figurines on their living room tables. Since moving back to St. Croix, I have begun making cut-out books, videos of Danish castles and paintings about colonial pottery. I am currently working on a documentary film: "The House That Freedom Built" and the monument "I Am Queen Mary".
