About

A GIRL FROM BROOKLYN WHO LOVES TO PAINT

I was born in Bed Stuy Brooklyn N.Y.
As far as I can remember I loved to draw and paint
After a devastating fire my family moved from Bed Stuy to Atlantic Ave where I was introduced to Brooklyn heights and the promenade. I was 10 years old at the time and my two older sisters would walk with me to the promenade where I would sit and draw the Brooklyn Bridge for hours. I always dreamed of living on that promenade as a child. Alas this dream was not to be. At age 13 my family moved to Long Island and I lost my beloved Brooklyn.
This compelled me to paint sites of Brooklyn with confident, vintage dressed women. Perhaps I am really painting myself if we never had to leave Brooklyn. A grown women who adores her past. I am an avid Frida Kahlo fan and created my Frida in the kitchen series back in 2008.
I love to create art weather it is done on canvas or in the form of a sugar mouse candy.
My sister convinced me to join Etsy and share my work and story with you.
