Vaughn Tucker born on February 2nd, 1973 in St. Ann, Jamaica, is the third of six children born to his mother.  He had an artistic nature more eloquent than most curious children.

At the tender age of 12 he began his artistic career by drawing images from local magazines and papers.  In the last of his teen years an oil paint set gift from his aunt motivated his interest for oil painting.

Early 2004 Vaughn migrated to the United States where he was able to focus on honing his skills and channeling his passion for nature into art.  With no formal instruction Vaughn refined his talent to the point of versatility in oil paint, water color, and acrylic.

With many awards and exhibitions under his belt, Vaughn is humbled by the existence of exotic alcoves created by nature, which is seldom appreciated. He thanks God for the gift of art and the motivational forces of nature.  He plays in the homey and clandestine feeling of tropical aura, Caribbean culture, and has yet to resist the impulse to paint his interactions with people and nature.


Artist Statement

“The Hills are Alive”

 The play on colors and styles that I experiment with, allows my expression of freedom and joy.   My art is not dead, but alive with peace and love. I focus on relationships and the community that exist in a natural alcove.
