Long Island University (LIU) School of Nursing
LIU recently moved their School of Nursing into renovated space at Kings County Hospital Center. Featured in this virtual exhibit are works that were commissioned for the sites’ reception areas, classrooms and lounges.

Works were commissioned for this site by artists; Lia Chang, D. Lammie Hanson, Ramona Candy, Gustavo Schmidt, and Charlie Churchill.

Below are my six new Botanical Beauties portraits (20 x 30) commissioned for the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation Art Collection. They will be installed in the corridors of the L.I.U./Kings County Hospital Center Nursing School this month.
