Thatch House

“Thatch House” is a flashback on lots of people in any culture who live or have lived in poverty.  “I sketched this from memory, living a Caribbean lifestyle. It is a reminder of my past,” he said.

How he makes art

Junior begins each canvas with a vision or an idea, and then he sketches and paints. He uses pencil, canvas, acrylic paint, and really good brushes.

Painting since he was 13

Junior began painting when he was 13. He became a professional artist and works hard on the detail of each piece.  He paints portraits of people and of wood carvings, and accepts commissions.
