Art allows me to be creative and is the ultimate medium through which I can express myself. I would like to share my works with others in the hope that it will bring joy to them. The culture of the people of Trinidad and Tobago is very diverse. It is this coming together of the different races and different customs that makes my country very interesting for me as an artist. This ‘callaloo’ island is the ideal source material for the landscape and portrait artist. Trinbagonian Heritage is rich in joyful scenes. It is my desire to recapture these timeless happy moments on canvas and preserve it for future generations. I thank God for giving me this talent. I also thank my mother Olga Maynard for nurturing my artistic abilities when I was a child.
See the darkness of the skies!
See how the Heavens open up!
See the ruins around me!
See the fiery arrows attacking me!
See the serpent at my feet!
It's a WAR!
A Spiritual Battle between Good and Evil.
But have no fear!
I have suited up!
I have on my Armor of God!
Helmet of Salvation!
Breastplate of Righteousness!
Belt of Truth!
Shield of Faith!
Sword of the Spirit!
And feet planted firmly with the Gospel of Peace!
If God is for me who can be against me!
I am available for art exhibitions and commissions.
