Biography

I was born in the Caribbean and pursued my secondary education in the UK after winning an art scholarship. I went on to The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London to study for a BA in Fine Arts. Following this I studied at The Prince’s Drawing School in London.

I currently live and work in London, UK.
