I was born and grew up in the Bahamas. I started drawing at a young age, and I would do portraits and landscapes in pencil until i finished high school. When I went to college I was majoring in engineering, but I took one art course and decided that it was what I really wanted to do. I changed majors and painted for the first time. It has become a part of my life and one of my great passions.
I grew up on the island of Eleuthera surrounded by pink sand beaches on the beautiful atlantic ocean. Daily sunsets on the water, coconut trees, and an island culture gave me an appreciation for bright colors and festive people.
