Born in 1975, in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad W.I., Jason’s formal training in Art was at Trinity College in his native country.
He has been a freelance illustrator since 1997 working with publications like the Caribbean Beat Magazine and the Guardian and Express newspapers. He has illustrated for advertising agencies, illustrated book and CD covers, designed Carnival costumes and done private and corporate commissions.
His artistic style ranges from the photo-realistic to the cartoony to suit his diverse clientele, who are often amazed that the work comes from the same artist. His leaning towards fantasy art and Carnival subjects are evident in his work which he sees as one in the same. He works in various media but mainly acrylics.
He believes that artists/artistes in a young nation have a duty to engender in a populace the kind of place it can be. They are both the fortifiers and fabricators of identity. This believe guides him in the choice of subject matter he creates and his use of the far-reaching print media.
Apart from painting, he writes horror and crime fiction and is currently teaching English at a government secondary school. He works from his studio in Diego Martin where he also lives with his beautiful wife and two step-children.
