FROM ONE CREATION TO ANOTHER: Bahamian recording artist ventures into art
Dominique Forbes.

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Dominique Forbes, the Bahamian creative who has already established herself as an international recording artist and author, has now ventured into the art field.

The artistic entrepreneur with a vast portfolio has recently publicized a family life piece entitled “Deception!” and another art piece entitled “MOM WITH CHIPS!”

Speaking to the first piece, Forbes said: “This concept is inspired by my desire for helping society to build healthier family structures and functional homes by extension.

“I am not saying that any of the above-mentioned does not exist. What I am saying is this piece is truly inspired by my personal love for seeing this area of life develop.”

She added: “I want to encourage people to be faithful to one another in all relationships and would like to help others to understand who is behind the spirit of deceit, which all manner of trickery tends to fall under.”

The artist explained that the second piece was a more spur-of-the moment sentimental piece that came about after one of her beloved children accidentally made a spill on the floor.

She described how the inspiration just came to her as she was cleaning up it, and she decided to form the word “mom” into a lively and meaningful arrangement amid the chaos.

Forbes’ creative entrepreneurship has taken flight over the past few years, with her having self-published several books and released a litany of music singles.

The Bahamian native has garnered tens of thousands of listeners on SoundCloud from around the world and is featured on Brazilian station Estilo De Jogo every week at 8pm on Mondays, 7.30 on Wednesdays and 8pm on Thursdays.

She recently hinted that her next upcoming single, “Come Close to Me”, is just around the corner and in the meantime, she has begun offering virtual singing lessons to help Bahamians of all ages tap into their musical side.

“Classes are for kids and or adults who are children at heart and who are ready to learn,” she said, noting that special rates are offered for groups, families and kids.

Forbes said her music students will learn how to strengthen their voice, tune their ears for music, work on their pitch and project their voice.

In addition, she said they will also have fun and build comradery along the way.
