"In creating large-scale oil paintings that unveil romantic dreamscapes of my fantasy of Jamaica, I explore my yearning for somewhere that I have never visited yet feel connected to and the poetics of my mixed-race identity.
Littering canvases with a recurring set of images; a visual language of sugar- sweet and menacing themes that collide to unsettle this utopia allows me to confront concepts of geographical identity, authenticity, race and belonging. Jamaican folklore and tales my father has shared with me of the island directs much of the narrative in my artworks."
