Only Game in Town (2020)
My pseudonym is RAven and I am a national to the twin pearl isles of Trinidad & Tobago that sit in the North Atlantic Ocean in reverent beauty just off the coast of Venezuela in the vibrant Caribbean Seas. I was schooled at the Institute of Art and Design, in New York City, my major was Interior Design, but I share portfolios as I am a Prof. Interior Designer, the Design & Visual Coordinator at the studio I share with my business partner and husband, that I am also an artist, my canvas is my release.
I abide in the lush scenic hills of our Northern Coastal retreat at home in the Caribbean where my inspiration is fueled by life, silence, the comforts of nature, the gleaming speckle of the stars by night and yes, by the genius talents of left over by Jacob Isaacszoon van Swanenburg, the renditions passed from Rembrandt's chapter, and the realism of Willem Witsen's scenic harbors that long stay adrift on our minds, to name but just a few.
To these greats and so many others I accredit my love for visual arts.
