Kyawana Shaw-Abraham

Painting for almost two decades, Kyawana is probably best known for her signature paintings of the island’s flora and birds. A self-taught artist, her work over the years has been a diverse portfolio of iconic local cultural portraits,  taken from Carnival or the Tobago Heritage Festival, as well as paintings of children at play.

Often rendered in oil or acrylic, infused with colour and expression, her pieces offer an unique intimacy and vibrancy. Several pieces of Kyawana’s work are housed at the Shaw Park Cultural Complex in Tobago.
