Kristina M. Rowe
Born in Jamaica 1986, attended Edna Manley School of Visual Arts

“I was born on October 25 1986 to parents R. Alexander and Angela Rowe in St. Andrew Jamaica. From an early stage in life my parents saw that as a youngster I was very artistically creative and innovative and very much right brain active. They encouraged me to hone in on my budding talent. I eventually went and explored my artistic nature at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. Once there I majored in painting and then graduated with a B.F.A (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in 2009. My paintings never justify who I am as an individual or puts me in a category. The paintings I do are often of what I feel, how I feel, what I see or want to recreate or even translate through my artistic energy. To me painting is therapeutic and fun.”
