About the Artist: “Clayton de Freitas is a self taught artist who grew up in Belmont, Trinidad. He also has lived in the islands of St Maarten and Saba, Caribbean, exhibiting his work in a collaborative effort with artists from the USA and the Netherlands Antilles. Over the years he has taught art in small groups as well as at elementary level. His passion has always been his art, from painting acrylics to water colours, to drawings in pen and ink, to work in fabric paints. He has painted miniatures to very large pieces. As a realist in the area of art, he seeks to bring to life the beauty that our islands (Trinidad and Tobago) and other islands within the Caribbean hold. It is amazing how the artist has worked to produce detail in nearly all his paintings, having limited eyesight in one eye and blind in the other. He paints without the aid of his glasses and is always working on commissions: old ginger bread houses of many who seek him out to capture their family residences or offices of old. Clayton's art work has been bought by overseas collectors of Caribbean art, finding its way in the Netherlands Antilles, England, Toronto, Montreal, Egypt, New Mexico and various Caribbean islands like Barbados and the Grenadines.”Read more: Clayton De Freitas Bio
