Growing up on the Caribbean islands as a child, I was that little girl in a mystical world. Most of which has been left in the past now. By visualizing my memories through my art, I relive that beautiful moment in time. I capture thoughts, colors, sensations and fragrances of my experiences living in that spiritual and enchanting world. Growing up I talked to the animals: dogs, cats, birds, chickens, donkeys, lizards, trees and flowers. Some of these are not even around anymore. They have been traded in for the modern world of tourism, paved roads and buildings. It’s the destruction of my nostalgic childhood… This series will probably never have an ending, because I love having my inner child around. By documenting my memories, I relive my childhood over and over again.
