by Brianna McCarthy

About I Knew, I Know, I Thought

The above pieces are currently being shown at Softbox Studios in Trinidad. For the artist, they speak to the need for her to find solid ground, anchoring and peace of mind.

The images were meant to be strong, graphic and bold while not compromising the artist's penchant for detail.
