Presentation at Notre Dame


I'm really excited about my upcoming visit to Notre Dame. I will be visiting as a guest speaker, and I will also exhibit my artwork. The University and the surrounding community is invited to an exhibit of my work on February 9th.

The University also has a wonderful Black History event planned on February 10th, in which I will give a presentation along with Patrice Yursik on the importance of positive self perception in African American women. The presentations will be followed by a workshop aimed at encouraging positive self-image.

To Be Forever Immortalized


As you can see, I love to paint people. I am beginning to work on new projects, and I need more people to pose for me in New York. I am working on a couple of different projects in which I need people that are modelesque or very interesting looking. I am looking for males and females of all races. Posing nude is not a requirement, but you should be comfortable with your body.

Posing for me would entail me taking photos of you. If you are interested, email me at info@dawnokoro.com. You can see more of my artwork at www.dawnokoro.com.

The above painting is "Shine 2" acrylic on canvas, 16x20 inches.
