Statement

I'm a Contemporary Jamaican artist / illustrator with a passion for promoting my native culture. This shines through in my work. I take my inspiration from Jamaica's vibrant pop culture referencing various elements on the island such as street slang, party names and dance techniques.

Within my studio practice I employ painting, drawing, printmaking and digital techniques to build a picture of modern Jamaica. I strive to create work that reflects a society that is imaginative, inventive, colourful, resilient and never shy of a likkle controversy.

I've had the opportunity to exhibit my work around the world. My paintings sit in both public and private collections worldwide, a few notable collections include Stussy Worldwide, Campari Promotions and DanceJa.
