“Creativity is my life. The computer is my medium.”
While working on my thesis for a Master’s degree at School of Visual Arts, NY, I realized how expansive computer art could be, as well as fun. After graduation in 1997, I decided to look for a program or start one where I could share all this knowledge I had acquired with African-American teens. One day I heard Bernard White on WBAI interviewing students from HarlemLive. I knew this was the group I wanted to work with and contacted HarlemLive.
I have been involved with HarlemLive since the Fall of 1997. I teach computer graphics (2D and 3D) and multimedia development using various software:
Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator, Macromedia Director, Strata StudioPro, CosmoWorlds.
BIO: After working 20 years in the corporate world of 7th Ave. I decided to expand and lead a more creative lifestyle. So in 1991 I enrolled in a computer photo-etching class and became fascinated w/the computer.
This inspired me to quit my full-time job and enroll full-time in art school. My life was blessed and my hard worked honored. Last year the project I had worked on for 3 years “Orishas’ Garden” was awarded, nominated by Epson,to become a part of the Smithsonian Institution’s Permanent Research Collection in Wash., D.C. It also received a nomination for a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship.
Presently, I am planning a show for the year 1999 to be exhibited in NY and Europe. For HarlemLive I plan a series of graphic/multimedia summer workshops.
