Statement: 

“Economy in Vibrant Motion: Celebrating Rodriguan Essence”

My artwork embodies the economy of Rodrigues through its local products, artisanal craftsmanship, and the revenue stemming from tourism. This narrative is illustrated through elements like kite surfing, the sea, the island’s unique and magnificent landscapes, notable sites, and its rich cultural heritage. This vibrant portrayal captures the heartbeat of Rodrigues, the driving force that sustains those who call it home. The portrayal is accentuated by lively and colorful hues, vividly showcasing the island’s vitality and diversity.
