Mission & Artist CV


I am a Jamaican-born painter, artist, and photographer living in Washington DC.

I enjoy studies of theory, design, and unconventional execution in visual art. My current works focus on unique qualities of new materials when paired with light, sound, and motion. I focus on the simplicity of the form, wherein function is merely implied with skillful use of concealed technology.

I began to formally study art at the age of twelve, and have studied at the University of Maryland and The Corcoran College of Art.



  • Theorema – the idea that a certain set of aesthetic values and ideas can be given form and used as the basis of further ideas.
  • Schema – a recurring (or recursive) set of plans or structures,  employed to create ever more complex and intriguing creations.
  • Experimentum – the earnest and reckless attempt to produce an artistic (and often anomalous) result using unproven ideas.
