As an emerging digital artist, my focus is on creating abstract expressionistic
paintings. I chose this style of art because it allows me to express my feelings and
imagination. I am not constrained to specific rules and each art piece is subjective. There is enough room for each viewer to add their own interpretation.

I would describe my art process as experimental in nature. I start with a blank mind and allow my imagination to be my guide. As I play around with different brushes and techniques, something of value emerges. This makes the process even more exciting.

I discovered my passion for art from the age of 12. At this stage, the materials I used were made up of only two items, graphite pencil and paper. I then went on to become a fashion designer and won third place in my first fashion contest in the Bahamas. In late 2010, my family and I moved to Canada, and though I did not continue my professional pursuits in the field of art, I continued to work in the background, developing this skill. Thus far, I've participated in several art workshops offered by the Brampton Arts Organization such as: Professional Practices for Artists, and Artist Statements & Bios, etc. I've also branched off into writing and illustrating children's books.
