I am a Cartoonist and Illustrator from Trinidad and I graduated from the Center for Cartoon Studies in 2010. I began my career as a Freelance Illustrator with the Trinidad Guardian newspaper and during that time I pursued a 3 year Diploma in Graphic Design and a 2 year Certificate in Bookbinding at the John Donaldson Technical Institute in Trinidad (renamed the UTT Creative Campus). After working as a Graphic Designer and Bookbinder for a number of years I decided to pursue my other passions, drawing and writing stories for comics. My interest are creating narratives for children and young adults. Currently, I am attending The University of the West Indies to pursue my degree in Literatures in English. 

I live with my husband and son in Trinidad.
