Through art, she expresses her reaction to the environment surrounding her. A quote from Todd states, “There is so much Art in Trinidad and Tobago that focuses only on the pretty and the past. I prefer to contemplate the present and the future.”[3] One of the outlets Todd uses to share her ideas of art and design is through Tumblr, of which the blog is called Sexypinkon [1].
