Art

I grew up with a photographer from Trinidad and Tobago named Ray Orpheus Griffith, who had an exceptional ability to capture moments in ways that words would not adequately express. He was pretty great at design, which was seasoned by his eclectic taste in music. It is in this environment that my exposure to art, in its different forms begun. Even in mycurrent phase of life’s journey, art still moves me through its power to shift my mindset and perspective because it challenges what we are all able to do when we translate our imagination and ideas into reality.

This portion of my blog is dedicated to Papa Ray, it is meant to evoke a change in how we see, act, feel and understand life because at the end of the day we may all come from different walks of life but there are some things that are inarguably common amongst us. May our minds bring a positive change and make the world a better place.
