Born in West Virginia in 1960, Kuki moved to Brazil when she was five years old. Now living in Miami, Kuki has trained with such master painters as Newman Schultze and Waldemar da Costa.


Kuki's abstractionism features irregular lines and forms, always in harmony with bright colors. With acrylics and gesso, her production is informal. Each piece seeks an equilibrium with the forces imposed by the colors and forms.


Her pieces are owned in many private collections in Europe, South America, and the United States. Kuki creates customized paintings upon request aside from her collections.
