Book Illustrations 


Over the past few years, I have been privileged to work on a variety of children’s books with talented authors and writers.

My passion lies with stories that reflect my heritage as the child of immigrants, my connection to the Caribbean, and the richness and expanse of the African Diaspora. I believe that diverse stories are essential to creating a more just, and equitable world, and this is something I am deeply committed to manifesting through my art. 

Each book is available for purchase by clicking on the cover.
