Rosey Cameron Smith

Over 20 years have passed since the “monkey lady” settled on St Kitts. “It was pure chance that brought me here and I've stayed in the country ever since.” Rosey, a visionary artist, does all she can to ensure that the visual arts are taught and gain recognition on the island of St Kitts.

“There's plenty of local talent here, but it needs to be nurtured, establish more depth and become known abroad.”

She has acquired a local reputation for her pictures which capture the spirit of the islanders' daily life, for her clowns (see cover) as well as carnival figures that look as if they might have come straight out of Sierra Leone. She is particulary known for the descendants of the African green monkeys she has tamed and which now follow her up to the doorstep of her home. According to current estimates some 50,000 of them live in the tropical forests and arid peninsula of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis.
