Hi My name is Gail and my art was formerly featured under the name TriniArtStudio but I’ve rebranded to "GaFra. New mindset, new goals, new name. This feels more like me.

I Live in Trinidad and Tobago an Island in the Caribbean. I feature scenes from my country and our culture. Anything that grabs my attention I paint. So come check out my work and if something catches your attention, don’t hesitate buy it because it was meant for you.

I got into art by chance. One day my neighbour told me she was going to do art with a friend of hers who decided to give free art classes to her friends. I always wanted to learn art so I asked her to ask her friend if I can join the group, Her friend said yes and I’ve been painting with them ever since, for the past 6 years. I also googled an artist whose work I loved. I decided to email him and tell him how much I loved his work. He responded and I mentioned that I wish I could learn from him. He said yes I could simply email some of my work and he would critique it then he would teach me a concept, give me an assignment. I would send it to him then he would critique my homework. I did that for a year then decided to do an art workshop in Boone North Carolina for a week.

My instructor finally told me she felt I was ready to show my work so I did my first show last year November and I sold half of my pieces. That’s my story, simple as it is. But I Love to paint and hope I can continue to paint and perfect what I do because I’m never satisfied with what I produce. Silly me.

Is It Me or My Art?

I’m trying to figure out why my art isn’t selling. Is it me or my art that doesn’t touch hearts. I have a few people who were interested but I can’t seem to get people more interested in the scenes I paint. Art is a reflection of what is touching you inside that comes out on the paper. Hopefully in time I will be able to reach the hearts of those who do check my pieces and…
