     I am a Guyanese-born visual artist and an art educator, who have spent the vast amount of my adult life in the United States of America. Despite my lengthy absence from my country of origin, my memories of Guyana are rich and abundant. Saturated colors, patterns and textures, reveal themselves in my paintings, collages and drawings. Sometimes my subject matter is abstract forms, while other artworks are about self. My self- portraits are both autobiographical and mythical mirrors through which Iím able to reflect on, from my past, by reminiscing about the Guyana that I once knew as a child. Wide nose and thick lips, are frequent in most of my art. I use these features not as cultural stereotypes, but to emphasize the natural beauty of African features. I am drawn to these features and continue to use them in my work, because I find them sculpturally strong, ruggedly handsome and spiritually connected to my work.
