About the Artist
Essie O (aka Essie D. Owens) is not just a visual artist. She is also an educator, community activist, and poet. Although she has degrees from CUNY and NYU, her fondest creative memories are from her studies at the School of Visual Arts in New York and Armory Art in West Palm Beach. Also, she has participated in group art shows in Florida (Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin Counties) and New York City. Essie describes her works as ART TO LOVE AND LIVE WITH EVERYDAY. It will last for generations!
