"The Magic Spring": Originally captured in 2009 - a spring off
the Blanchisseuse/Arima Road. As you can see, humans have
helped the Life-giver to flow towards us; we know what magic
The Spring can do.
"The Mermaid": Shot in 2011 at Mermaid Pools. The woman
mimics the mermaid who partially immerses herself in cold,
sacred waters while basking in the warmth of the sun.
"Grounding": Taken at Manzanilla beach, August 2013. My friend
Ryan is  soaking up the healing properties of the earth through
"Lone Bather": Captured at Manzanilla beach, September 2013.
My friend is bathing alone, welcoming the magical healing of the
sea while being watched over by the sky.
"All is Well": Originally shot in twilight at a rooftop yoga event
but edited to highlight the contrast between light and dark. My
spiritual self embraces both positive and negative charges of life.
For Patrice M. Charles, expression is born out of spontaneous bursts of
inspiration. Her writing is generally influenced by nature, as well as existential
and introspective matters. Her style is terse and while highly personal, her
pieces are often open to interpretation.

She has been published in the
viBrant ARTS Ezine by Poetic Vibes Arts
Foundation which is available online. Other work has been placed in
- an important anthology of Caribbean female writers by Bamboo Talk
