In 2016 I moved to California and currently reside in San Francisco. I can be found most days at SMA Art Gallery, a ceramic studio shared by fellow resident clay artists. When I’m not working on my ceramics, I’m at home messing around with my sewing machine or experimenting with textile design and print making.
I was born and raised in Broward County, Florida. I also spent years of my childhood in Montego Bay, Jamaica with my father. My mother is of Irish decent and my father is Jamaican. I have always been drawn to art, even as a young child. I would draw, paint, hand sew, even bedazzle anything I could get my hands on. I knew art would be my career, but I did not know what form, nor did I settle into ceramics until I became an adult.
My passion for ceramics originally stemmed from wanting to connect with my ancestral roots through clay. I continue to honor my ancestors and center my art around spiritual connection. Feel free to check out the interviews I’ve done in the past to learn more about my life and my artwork. (Interviews below)
