Preston Douglas (1974-2002) was born in 1974 in Richmond, St. Mary, Jamaica. He was the last son of ten brothers and sisters. He began to paint at the age of 20, he was a home (self-taught) artist.
He had several exhibitions in 1995/1996 at Grosvenor Gallery, Constant Spring, Kingston.
He mostly painted churches – often corner churches – inspired by the Pukkumina cult, an African-Jamaican religion. But his work also depicts market scenes of Jamaica and the tropic fruits and vegetables of the quite countryside.
He left Jamaica for the USA in 1999, where he died in 2002.
