I was born in Kingston Jamaica on the 6th September 1974 to parents Margaret and Truman Ebanks. Returning to Cayman before the age of one, I called Cayman my home for the twenty six years that followed.

I moved to Switzerland in 1997 where my passing interest in photography became a passionate hobby. I spent the next seven years moving between the island and my new home, Switzerland, teaching myself the art form refining my talent whilst defining myself.

My first joint exhibition took place here in Cayman (as did all the others that followed, to date) in March of 2004 'Forces of Nature' followed by the McCoy Prize in May were I was awarded a commendation in the 'Fine Craft' category for my contemporary chair 'Viola'. 'Body Talk' was my next joint exhibition in July of 2004 followed by 'Portrait of an Artist' in August where I once again stepped out of "the box" and created a short video installation 'Introspective' as my contributing entry.
