I am a Caribbean/Jamaican Immigrant residing in Wilmington, Delaware for the past 33 years.It has been a very interesting journey, thanks to my parents fro instilling in me my African ancestral heritage, which has been a key element in my coping, growth, and recognition for the cultural perspective I brought to this great country. As a Folk Artist, educator, writer, storyteller, and public speaker for the Delaware Humanities Forum, on the subject, "Folk Art and Culture,".I have made a valuable contribution. I have been recognized with numerous Awards and Citations, the most recent being the 2014 State of Delaware Governor's Award for the Arts in the Category "Advocate for Folk Art." In 2013, I produced a documentary, "Arts As Prevention." which I would like to share nationwide. Please review my further Accomplishments and Impact, on my website, www.lafategallery.com Thank you.
