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!
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?
I do love a good burst of colour on a blank page
All alone at the side of a country road, miles from anything else...
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!
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.

Isn’t this what everyone thinks of when they think “Caribbean”?
What if the leaves of the coconut tree were the opposite of green?
We bleed Red, White & Black. We are Trinbagonians.
The pulse of an island...
So my brother likes to sit in front of the ocean to think, to plan, to dream... big!
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
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
That secret saucy smile of a Caribbean woman who knows that some of her juiciest secrets will always be a secret captured in vibrant heavy-body acrylics.
June was an amazing month for me. The Old School Studio was having 2 acrylic and mixed media workshops that had my name written all over it
Rolling, wading, striding, strolling. Statuesque beauty, voluptuous pride.
Easing, flowing, spreading, smiling. Radiates confidence, rises with the tide.
Inspired by henna patterns and designs
