Faces bordering the steps leading up to Gene Pearson’s studio. Pearson is one of Jamaica’s premiere artists. He emerged among the post-independence art scene that flourished and has worked ever since. 

I was lucky enough to get a personal tour of his studio last summer courtesy of Dr. Paul Rhodes’ Art Odyssey tour. I went with two other friends and had just the bestest time. One of them is no longer here: she died three months after this trip from leukemia.
