Art from trees

The coconut tree is a wonderful Creation found in abundance in The Caribbean. From the trees, there is drink, food in the form of rich, nutritious and delicious jelly, shade, durable and versatile materials. They decorate a large part of the countryside, and in 2015, I starting collecting and using the parts shed naturally by the trees, as canvas for handpainted decor pieces made in Barbados.

In harmony with the theme of ‘Creativity from Creation,” each of these colourful decor pieces from the Kalinago line, is painted on material from the trees, found on the forest floor. Every painted piece has a unique design and redecorating is made easy by flipping over the piece for a complementing design. They can be displayed in or outdoors, used as trays for the table, and have a good tolerance for sunshine and light sprinkles of rain. Customized pieces and theme sets for weddings, hotels, events and venues are available by special request
