Andrea Campbell - Jamaican Flag Bearer
by Andrea Campbell
Jamaican Beach with coconuts
I am a Jamaican who has had the opportunity to travel extensively but always returning home.
My love of country is reflected in the activities I undertake especially while living in foreign countries. As an art lover I have often painted scenes of Jamaica and have a few displayed in my office.
Last year I was privileged to publish my second book entitled Jamaican Proverbs, People and Places where I chronicled a part of Jamaica's culture for Jamaicans living overseas and generations to come.
Born in Kingston, I spent first 8 years in St Elizabeth, following 8 years in St Ann, returning to Kingston and now settled in St Catherine. I feel I am a rounded Jamaican, being able to lay claim to so many parts of the island :-)
Having experienced the culture of other nations, and having drawn on the kindness of many of my compatriots in the writing of my book, I realized that my people are some of the most generous people that exist.
I have attached a couple of my paintings - renditions of Jamaican beauty.
