I had a small art gallery in the Port Lucaya Marketplace in 1989, two years after leaving high school, when a chance encounter changed the course of my life. One day, Lady Henrietta St. George was in the marketplace and was very impressed with my paintings. At the time, I had no idea who Lady Henrietta St. George was. She introduced herself and told me, "One of these days, I'm going to bring my husband to see your work." About a month later she returned with her husband, Edward St. George, who offered to help me further my knowledge of art with a scholarship to the college of my choice.  I studied for two years at the International Fine Arts College in Miami (now known as The Miami Institute of Fine Arts) and graduated with an Associates Degree in Commercial Art in 1991.

My paintings are surrealistic, impressionistic and realistic, and each one has a story. I am inspired by people I meet, books I read and songs I listen to. I feel that inspiration is all around us. I try not to limit myself to just the things I can see or imagine; sometimes I combine them both. I like to follow my heart.

I look forward to meeting you, and sharing my passion for art and life with you!
