Islander Lucia Neagu is a native of Romania but has lived in the United States for 11 years. As a student, she studied art and earned a graduate degree in applied art. But with a family and a job, there was no time left over for art. In her biography, Neagu said that she had “missed being able to pursue my passion for art and hoped that late in my life there would come a time when I would be able to open up my almost-forgotten treasure box of feelings and sensitivity, and express myself as an artist.” Now a permanent resident and U.S. citizen, Neagu has returned her attention to her painting.

Her art is on display at 7613 S.E. 27th St. and is for sale. Call 232-3404 for information.
