Hair stylist, wig maker, body and face painter

The body is the source of inspiration; each individual allows for unique explorations. I am drawn to the human form: to enhance, to transform, to disguise, to enchant. Working in the Trinidadian carnival tradition, helping design and build masquerade (‘mas’) bands both in Port of Spain and Toronto, I learned to work on the street in fast-paced, often spontaneous, situations. This experience and knowledge is complemented by more formal schooling and more traditional theatre situations, in particular with the Video Cabaret productions of The History of the Village of Small Huts
