I am a self-taught artist who grew up in Trinidad and Tobago. I now reside in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical Engineering and a Master of Divinity from Howard University and spent over a decade working as an engineer in U.S. private and public sectors.
For more than 15 years, I drew vibrant and symbolic pictures with sharpie markers for family, friends and colleagues. After much encouragement from family and friends, I started Listen Vision Gallery, an online platform to sell prints of my artwork. My mission is to Listen for inspiration, enVision beauty, and make art affordable for everyone. Through my business, Listen Vision Gallery, I have done commissioned illustrations for businesses and private individuals. I have also done artwork live and participated in seven art shows in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. Giclée prints of my original pieces are available for sale in various sizes and framed formats, and I also have several of my art pieces printed on utility items for sale such as key chains, notebooks, cards, calendars, clothing, tote bags and notepads.
My artwork illustrates anywhere from one to three main images, and these images come together to relate a specific theme or story. These themes or stories come from conversations with people I encounter or are inspired by words people give me to create an art piece for them. Once the main images are in place, I weave intricate patterns around them. The final step to my art involves strategically applying vibrant colors slightly hiding the main images, while still allowing viewers to see patterns come to life.
I want my art to be a vehicle for others to relate with self, God and creation. I hope to grow Listen Vision Gallery into a brand that captures life in all its energetic colors, inspires others to create what gives them joy and connects people with affordable art.
