Biography:
Melverue Abraham has been a folk art expressionist since 1985, beginning with a solo exhibition in Los Angeles. Since then she has shown many times, including solo, group, and juried exhibits. Abraham has continued seizing opportunities to display her work because creating is her passion. One of Abraham’s pieces, “Harmonic Convergence,” was selected to be the book cover for the 1996 best seller “Spirit Speaks to Sisters” by June J. Gatlin. Abraham’s pen and ink illustrations were also selected to be included in the books “Pride of Heritage” and “The Last of the Colored Boys” by Karleyon Akka.

Artist Statement:
"
Artistry is my soul's destiny; I am compelled to release the colors and expressions that are given. Painting is my life and I know this, for it is now and always been. Art gives me energy or it relaxes me, either way there is no void, these expressions flow plentifully and beautifully as I feel a Divine connection with God, I just let go and allow the Divine Spirit to have it's way.....For God is my Teacher."
