I’m a 25 year old young female artist coming from a diverse background of Nigerian, Bajan and Bahamian. Traditionally I compose abstract works based on a particular feeling in the present or my recollection of feeling from my past that stands out in my mind. I graduated from St. Augustines College, 2006, upon which I enrolled in The College of the Bahamas where I earned my AA Art in 2010. Art has always been a fix hold in my life. (Weather watching family members create art both as a hobby and professionally.) Through seeing this I was always encouraged to create art myself, and so my journey began from young. As much as I may try to escape art as am plagued with the feeling of I should be doing more with my life, it always regenerates and holds me captive. Read Less

“Art is picking a fight with yourself, emotionally, physically and mentally all at once to see what really lies beneath.” – Deime A. Ubani
As a young Bahamian female artist my art pieces are always a battle to jump head first into my own emotions and experiences weather directly or indirectly; good or bad, living as female in a Carribean country. Over the years my subject has changed from social issues that frustrate me ( in which I wish to give voice to that other may not know how to) ; to putting on canvas the emotion I feel when I recollect fragments of my memories that bring warmth or uneasiness. This for me could be the abstract tile work in my grandmother’s house or the brick work used at my mother’s house, or particular colors that I associate with growing up, certain times and people. Another battle that comes through my work is the want and need to find out who I truly am, what effect has my heritage bought upon that am unbeknownst to. My art is ultimately my mirror of who am becoming and the portal of where I have derived. Read Less
