Tremaine here. I’m the owner and creator of MaroonDawta Ltd. I was born and raised in Jamaica but currently reside in the UK. I’m in love with all things creative, self-improvement, quotes, music and ginger wine!
As a child, I fell in love with the idea of creating something beautiful from a blank canvas. Something as simple as a colouring book gave me so much joy. The fact that I could colour the hair green and the trees red yet the picture remained beautiful – it gave me my first definition of art and creativity without even paying attention to those words.
Back home in Jamaica I loved doing projects in school, just so I could decorate the front of the project folder however I wanted to. I was the girl who would decorate the chalkboard with different coloured chalks and different designs when we were having a class party.
Coming to the UK at the age of 14 was definitely an experience. I was in a different country, a different culture, with different resources and different technologies. We did more things on computers here rather than hand to pen or hand to paint or hand to marker. Over the years I sort of shifted my creativity from physical to mental but now I’ve managed to merged the two.
I hope to share my love of accessories along with design, typography, self-improvement and inspirational quotes through artwork that will brighten your walls and hopefully your life (<– how pretentious LOL but you know what I mean hopefully).
