Each year in the run up to Carnival, the Department for the Creative Arts at the University of the West Indies recreates the 'Old Yard' , complete with actors and students performing as traditional carnival characters. For the past few years I have turned up with my art materials and taken up the challenge of capturing something of this spectacle. It is always a dynamic performance, which means it's often possible only to make a few marks on the paper before the pose has changed completely...
I am a keen artist in my spare time. I currently run a natural history art group within the TTFNC.
