Born in Jamaica, NY in 1953, Stacey Torres is an African American folk artist living in New Castle, IN. Her primary focus are women of color, painting with an abundance of color and media inspired by her Caribbean heritage.
A self-taught artist, Ms. Torres' love of painting began at a very early age. After a 40 year hiatus, while spending time with her mother who was in her final stages of Alzheimer's, she began to paint again for emotional therapy and support. This practice continues today.
