I was born in DC and raised in Maryland and Colorado as the youngest of three children. My parents are from the beautiful island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. I knew that I was artistically inclined in fifth grade when I had to do a state project on Connecticut. I spent hours making a beautifully detailed and organized tri-fold pamphlet with all the state facts and information. Needless to say, I scored an A+. My parents nurtured my artistic journey by enrolling me in private art lessons during my 8th grade year. I studied higher level visual art as a part of the International Baccalaureate program at William J. Palmer High school in Colorado Springs, CO.
I moved back to the DMV area at 18 years old and followed in my mother and sister's footsteps to attend Howard University. I graduated magna cum laude in 2008 with degree in Electronic Studio Art. During my time at Howard I definitely enjoyed the traditional studio art classes more than the computer based art classes. All levels of ceramics, drawing, 2D concepts, 3D concepts, painting, and photography were my favorites.
After college I started my career as an art teacher in DC at various schools and summer camps. I've had excellent art teachers along my journey and I'd love for all of my students to say that they enjoyed their experience in art class.
I am happily married to my husband David and we have three children.
