Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 1979, Lattecha Willocks’ artistic career began in 2001 when she left home for Vienna, Austria, where she lived for a year, studying German and exploring her wide range of creative interests. This is where she was first inspired to combine her love for drawing and crafting, with paint, canvas and brush. She has since used her love of travel to inform her artistic practice and has been inspired by some of the most beautiful vistas, particularly those from her beloved home country.
Lattecha's Rastafarian roots upbringing and her travels, together with over 20 years of professional experience in Jamaica's hospitality industry give her a unique perspective on the Jamaican experience. A maverick of self-reinvention, she is currently reading for a Bachelor’s in Literatures in English, at the University of the West Indies, Mona.
Lattecha creates in order to share her culture and vision with the world.
