About the Artist:
Dr. Damaris Shealy is a native of the Republic of Panamá. She is an artist whose raw talent began to take shape in middle school after migrating to the US thirty-seven years ago. During the past few years, Damaris has reclaimed her passion. Despite lengthy hiatus, Damaris’ raw uncultivated talent remained intact as she is once again rendering beautiful imagines that capture the various expressions of her subjects. Damaris focuses on the sensual nature of art, aiming to depict the expressions of her subjects through a rich combination of color, texture, and detailed likeness.
