My textile portfolio includes fashion and costume design along with larger commissioned works . As a 'Carnival Jumbie' I have made Mas*, played Mas and judged Mas. Carnival is an essential part of my life, and appears in many forms in my work.
* 'Mas' means both 'carnival' and 'costume', you can 'Play Mas' , 'Make Mas' and 'Wear a Mas'. I indulge in all three.
