Born in Trinidad, educated in Toronto, I am at home in Nevis.
With the inventiveness of a Trini, I use cloth to make original art. Using hands, eyes, scissors and sewing machine, the common cloth becomes uncommon, in the Island Living studio.
Island Living, is a celebration of my decision to live in the Caribbean. Through this business, I bring ideas, art and information forward. As a business woman I seek to elevate small business generally and assist start-ups, I want to expand the quality and quantity of 'local' items available on the island. I serve on the board of the handicraft society, I am Founder of the Charlestown Gallery and Chairperson of the Nevis Culturama Festival Central Committee.
I love wooden houses, Old School Soul music and the Hot Baths of Nevis.

The Charlestown Gallery
The Charlestown Gallery, whose address is The Cotton House Building, Charlestown, Nevis, started informally in August of 2013. Our mandate is to promote and develop art on Nevis in a way that it is more in the public realm.
This is a not-for-profit gallery operating in space donated by the Nevis Island Government and powered by our artists and volunteers who range from the seasoned exhibitor to the beginner, works on display are in a variety of media.
Contact us to volunteer, exhibit, purchase a piece of our art or donate to our growth and development.
The beautiful island of Nevis, in the Eastern Caribbean captures the hearts of visitors and residents alike. Your favorite vista of Nevis, whether it is a panoramic ocean view, a spectacular sunset, or a meaningful place in your garden, can be captured in a unique Memories of Nevis fabric art piece by Island Living.
Deborah and her team will meet with you, listen to your stories, take several photographs then use an extensive fabric collection to interpret your vista into a stunning fabric collage. This personalized fabric collage will become an heirloom that you enjoy for a lifetime.
