“My artistic practice revolves around the unexpected encounters between materials, akin to the meeting of chemical substances. Through the fusion of natural elements and artifacts, I aim to animate matter and evoke narratives that transcend traditional boundaries. Guided by my Caribbean roots, I explore the interplay of color and texture, transforming everyday objects into poetic compositions that challenge perception and invite contemplation.”
