You could say that I have always had a love for the arts and anything artistic. I think this springs from growing up with a mother and grandmother who made patchwork quilts, and seeing so many of the women around me, including my older sisters, master such crafts as crochet. In high school, I focused on the arts and crafts and they have always played an integral role in anything that I do. As such I jumped at the chance to be the coordinator of Antillean and Creole. I hope you will support us as we seek to highlight and at times revitalize the art and crafts traditions, and as we work to bring the warmth and beauty of the Caribbean into homes in the Caribbean and all around the world.
