Events such as "Colours" a Multicultural Art Exhibit, included the works of artists from various Diaspora who came together in honor of Black History Month. The works of renown artist of the Philadelphia area as well as artist employed by Amtrak were displayed in a three-day exhibit held at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station.

Retiring from Amtrak in June 2016, I am now able to devote my time and energy into creating new and wonderful pieces of art.
