When I lived in Antigua there was no colour printing. Only black and white. So artists would create a pen and ink drawing, have it printed on good quality paper and then colourwash the drawing. This was the closest we got to creating a series of prints.

Pepperpot stew was a local Caribbean dish filled with all sorts of vegetables and meat. This picture is filled with all sorts of memories of my life in the Islands.
