Always artistically inclined Flora’s true potential is now being realized following her enrollment seven years ago in her first formal art class. She has not stopped painting since, and continues to explore all mediums from oils to watercolors and acrylics. Her work is known for its excellence in landscape composition and for vibrant use of color. Flora has displayed her paintings in libraries and community centers across Long Island.
