World-renowned Jamaican artist Lloyd Hoffstead was born in Lucea, Jamaica. From his earliest days, he was very creative, and showed a keen interest in art. Lloyd was a naturally gifted student, and at the age of 18, was accepted to the Jamaica School of Art (now the Edna Manley School of the Arts) in Kingston. Lloyd studied painting, sculpture, jewel craft, graphic design, textiles, and ceramics before graduating in 1982. The same year, he opened Gallery Hoffstead 1 in his home town of Lucea - the first graduate of the School of Art to set up a gallery in Jamaica. In 1986, Lloyd opened Gallery Hoffstead 2 in Negril - and became the fist artist in Jamaica to own two galleries.
