The following art posts are dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge about art and history from the perspective of an outsider, and for lack of a better term, from one whom the art world would call a “contemporary intuitive artist”. I don’t want to fit into any category. I paint. I am a painter. Of course, my world shapes my work so I am, a Bay Area artist from the island of Jamaica.
I hope you enjoy reading these articles. Thank you for visiting.
