De treasury, could bun down. We jammin’ still, we jammin’ still.
De Economy could fall down. We jammin’ still, we jammin’!
Just hold dem and wuk dem!
Sometimes we all need a visual trip to Wonderland, this was Jovee's.
An international love story in black and white. What would your story look like?
It's the natural crown that we women wear...
When you've longed for a little one and finally... there she is.
Sitting in the sun on the beach where the river meets the sea...
The curve of a woman's hips and thighs, the dip of her waist...
Looking for a personal cheer-leading song? I heartily recommend this one!
Step forward! Move forward! Everybody!
That moment when the stage in sight but security holding your section back until it clear, so you waiting... but you ready to play yuh mas, play yuh self. The minute they say 'Go!' is madness up in here!
"From you wake up this morning, you's ah WINNER!" lyrics from 'Cheers to Life' by The Voice
I felt like Mother Earth, so alive, so connected to everyone and every bit of positive joyful energy on the planet...
A tongue lashing that stings like a cat-o-nine tail, beware, beware, the Pierrot Grenade!
In celebration of the Native American Indians who first inhabited T&T!
Lanky joy, graceful yet precariously balanced. Dancing a jig 10 ft off the ground like is nothing!
Horns, tail and whistle in place. Blue paint or Black oil? How do you like your devil? DUTTY!
What a fine mockery of aristocratic wealth and haughtiness, hidden demurely behind a fluttering fan and twirling parasol!
Born of destruction and chaos, bringing hell and damnation and revolution. Be afraid!
When was the last time you see a T&T Carnival costume without feathers?
Inspired by Mark Hearld
I do love a good burst of colour on a blank page
For the arrival of a precious little one...
Along a wooded path, just 2 minutes from Glen Cottage, there was this view... Wow!
Water, Wind, Earth and Fire
The sun kissed the earth and the colours of the world blossomed
Sometimes there are pieces of art that are just very happy accidents...
The Power of Choice!
All alone at the side of a country road, miles from anything else...
Continuing the feelings on canvas series - what is Hope?
How do I capture the giddy feeling of unabashed joy with acrylics on canvas? Ta da!
On a high street that is centuries old and rife with history, there is so much to record.
About a little historic town that sprouted at key crossroads centuries ago
Las Cuevas is a sandy bay on the north coast of Trinidad. The sunsets there are phenomenal so of course, I had to try my hand at it!
Somewhere between numbness and fear is a wasteland called Despair
On a picturesque hillside in beautiful Gloucestershire, there was a sign...
One summer we spent a weekend at a lovely little cottage in The Bussage...
After a long drive, you get to Glen Cottage, step on the welcome mat and sigh. You're home, even away from home.
The whip and whirl of sun-battered sand longing for water...
One day I just got the urge to immerse myself in blue...
I looked up and saw a collection of buildings almost on the ridge of the hill and I thought, now that would make an interesting painting...hmmm
On the north-west coast of Trinidad, where the island almost curves back on to itself, there is a highway that follows the shoreline and the view is... well... spectacular.
My husband's friend's 40th Birthday was coming up. Hmmm, what gift to get him?
I must confess, I do love that seedy, throbbing, uninhibited part of London where nothing is taboo and everything is.. perhaps?
It just wouldn't be London without...

A part of Royston’s fascinating history
Staring at beautiful nothingness that soothes the soul...
The gritty city feel we love so much - Take 2!

Isn’t this what everyone thinks of when they think “Caribbean”?
What if the leaves of the coconut tree were the opposite of green?
If you’ve ever lived in a flat in London, you know what I mean!
A block of flats in London, you know the drill!
A beautiful English garden, some fun water soluble pens and I was in sketching heaven!
Slashes of colour to brighten up London town
One day when I looked out the window...
Now that’s a house you’’ll never miss!
The colours of Brasilian Barbecue...
We bleed Red, White & Black. We are Trinbagonians.
The gritty city feel we love so much
The farmers are collecting hay, the fields are brown, and Hertfordshire is slowly leaving summer behind.
The pulse of an island...
So my brother likes to sit in front of the ocean to think, to plan, to dream... big!
If you didn’t go in person, I bet you were just like me – screaming at the tele!
The result of a sketching day in a beautiful English countryside pub garden
Celebrating the cultural Mecca that is my London!
Dry season in Trinidad & Tobago, the ground literally wobbles with the heat haze that dries your eyes and the dry blades of grass easily catch fire
That rusty red tower against a blue sky - I love South Bank!
I just love South Bank!
I worked in the City for less than a year. What an exciting, maddening, scream-inducing, exhilarating, brain-titillating experience!
Where the river meets the sea among a lot of coconut trees...
Using Matisse’s Cut-Out techniques to capture the movement of the costumes in Trinidad & Tobago’s Carnival
Social commentary, politics or poli-tricks, double entendre, mockery, spectacle, and plenty picong - That is Trinidad Ole Mas’!
This is my favourite part of Trinidad Carnival. Out in the wee hours, covered in mud or paint or cocoa, dancing in the street... Yes!
This is what people think about when they hear T&T carnival – feathers, beads, bikinis, beautiful costumes in stunning colours, indeed Pretty Mas’!
I come from a long line of strong Trinibagonian women – brilliant women full of energy, love, life and heat – just like the sun
The Worthams were a very very wealthy family in 18th century Hertfordshire. This is a tiny snapshot of their holdings.
Before Royston’s Manor House existed, the site was known in 1610 as Gatward’s Estate and it bordered the King’s hunting properties. Oooh!
Before 1897, Royston was one town in two counties!
Where and when did the gates of the Royston Manor House go?
Every time I drive home from the studio, those big bodacious Hertfordshire skies just blow my mind!

If you’ve ever sat on that bench just in front the trees at the top of the Heath, you’ll know...
Lord knows I'm pretty pants at watercolours but when I discovered fluid acrylics and realised I could have the best of both worlds? Heaven!
The lush greenery of St James’ Park with Big Ben peeping out over the trees!
Another J. D. Wetherspoon commission for their Royston pub showing a view of Melbourn Street facing west
