For six years he went about his life without even touching a sketchbook, then at the age of nineteen (19) he got into Graphic Designing and decided to pursue the degree program at the College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago (COSTAATT) in January 2013. Later that year he entered the Trinidad and Tobago Community Development Art Competition in which he placed 2nd displaying his first ever painting which was acrylic based.

Dr. Debra Bartholomew fell in love with Art when her first son was born, and she decided to sketch him whilst sleeping. Taught to CXC level in Drawing and Pastels media, she decided to ‘try’ her hand at painting. Largely self-taught in this medium, she continued to experiment in different techniques to hone her craft. In 2009, was commissioned to do a large mural in the library of a top school in Mumbai, India which still stands. In 2011, she held her first exhibition, entitled Harmony, born out of the strife taking place in the Middle East from which she and her family fled. Her piece, Raindance, which shows the harmony between the raindrops and a banana leaf, adorns the wall of the Queens Park Oval. She has also exhibited at the Doctors’ Art Attack Art Show in 2014 – 2015. In the group exhibition “Through His Eyes”, she exhibits her greatest work to date, her collection entitled, Grace.
