Was born and raised in the mystical magical island of Trinidad & Tobago which has permanently infused her mind, heart, body, and soul.
Influenced mainly by Boscoe Holder an established Trinidadian artist, recognized for painting people of color and culture. Also peaked by her daughters imagination, innocence, and curiosity for the world, her work expresses a whimsical, as well as a realistic effect. She began creating original art pieces that people can easily connect with, working a lot more with realism and glow art. Her daughter Izabella was even her very first muse. Having taught herself, she is incredibly innovative and uses a variety of combinations for her paintings. They are all enhanced with embellishments, effects, sculpture and assemblage. She also creates mixed media art incorporating various oils, acrylics, spray paints, glitter, swarovski crystals, precious metals, precious stones, 24k gold leafing and glow in the dark dyes, making her pieces truly one of a kind.
"From the early age of 8, I started expressing myself through art. As a teen, I then ventured off into working on wall murals and pillow art, as well as making tote bags and other crafts as souvenirs for tourists and local shops in my neighborhood. As I grew older, life took me along many different paths not allowing me to create as much but I always remained connected to art in one way or another. At the age of 19 I moved to the US and started doing odd jobs and handling small businesses on my own. As time went on and living here in such a diverse environment I slowly rediscovered my passion and potential in the art industry, with an odd combination of nostalgia and new emotions."
Surely not too long after living in Miami, home to one of the hosting cities of Art Basel and one of the top cities in the art world, Candice officially rekindled her connection with the arts in 2016 and has since been very passionate about creating unique mixed media fine art.She believes that her daughters presence in her work, brings good energy and can be appreciated by all ages. She creates a series of one-of-a-kind pieces that many can identify with through their own life. Her main focus are topics like prosperity, harmony, and love, expressing versatility amongst her own work allowing it to be appreciated globally.
