BCA Studio Resident
I was born in Nassau, Bahamas close to where I spent my early childhood and where I returned during summers through my early teenage years. Great Inagua was a beloved island, greatly influencing my work as an artist, as has a shared family intergenerational island in Maine where I collect most of the beach objects for my assemblages. As an adult, I have mostly resided in New England, settling in Boston in my mid-twenties and then in my early thirties moving to Cambridge where my husband and I raised a daughter and continue to live. My studio is at Boston Center for the Arts where I am a member of the BCA Studio Residency program from mid 2022 until mid 2025.
