Hempstead, New York





Art has been a major love in my life since I was a very young girl.  I started with pencil drawings and eventually went on to painting with oils.   My style of painting is greatly influenced by the "Old Masters" such as Reuben's and Rembrandt.  The contemporary pieces I have done were done in hope to educate and inspire the viewer to either an external or internal dialogue on the many aspects of being human at this time.  Not in just being.

As a self-taught artist I will continue to strive to fulfill the commitment toward excellence in my artwork.  I thank God for this gift of expression.   Thus far, my artwork has been extensively exhibited throughout Long Island, and New York.   such as the African American Museum in Hempstead, N. Y.,  Hofstra, University, Uniondale, N. Y., Queens College Community Library in Forest Hills, N.Y., Lakeview Library , Lakeview, West Hempstead, N. Y. Many of my work are in private collections.
