These worlds of the imagination are like stage sets in which I portray my experience of life and loss with a reflective daydreaming quality in which the boundaries of memory blur and real time merges with the time of dreams. Ruins of buildings, trees, the city, all mark the spaces where I confront the conditions of my life. If I don't paint I would be in an insane asylum. Painting is a way of freeing myself, of imposing order in a world that seems so chaotic. In my aesthetic world I am the one in charge, everything is controlled; the composition, the colours, even here though sometimes, things are incomprehensible, but then life is often incomprehensible. Art has always provided refuge and solace. I like to navigate the world of the flat  space. This world is parallel to the real world.The Surrealist's fearless revelations of psycho-emotional dreamscapes. Places which are sometimes  ambiguous, a little frightening sometimes. There aren't many Jamaican artist who paint like this, but my intentions has never been to be like the others or any one but myself, my own unique, authentic voice. My own synchronizations of dream, memories, books read in order to discover the deeper meanings, and of course music.

She is a recipient of the Cecil Boswell Facey Foundation, Julia Lyn and the Carreras Limited scholarships and also of The Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission Educational Grant.

I have found my purpose as an artist and  to recognise other aspects of Jamaican culture am still seeking to gain more”. In 2016 when Zorhia moved to Kingston, she began and to see how much we are still affected by the residues of colonization. “Psychological invisibility” is seen as a dominant issue that affects some of us while we yearn for a sense of belonging. With that, and her experience of racism she has started to paint within the themes of cultural appropriation, racial discrimination, fashionable publicity and the battle for self-acceptance.
