MANY SHADES OF BROWN
Mother and Educator, Jimise Winston Finds Time to Create and Share
Her daughter is the most beautiful shade of all—a soft cocoa brown. Mia Elizabeth’s eyes light up the room full of people as she bounces around the art gallery, stealing close-up looks at the pieces on the walls. Jimise allows her to roam freely, and busies herself greeting the host of family and friends who have come to her exhibit’s opening night.

Larger Than Life
Jimise Winston is one of thirteen artists selected for the 2016 Emerging Artists Exhibit at Serengeti Gallery. Having come full-circle, she was born in the nation’s capital, graduated from the Norfolk State University School of Fine Arts, and now works as Art Instructor at Friendship Public Charter School in Washington, D.C.
“A passion for the culture reverberates from each chocolate layer of her acrylic paint.”
Winston’s portraits are larger than life. She has mastered her preferred medium and technique, and her passion for the African & African-American culture reverberates from each chocolate layer of her acrylic paint. She finds deep joy in instruction and making art an important part of the educational community, and in 2010, she saw that mission rewarded when she was awarded “Teacher of the Year” at Woodridge Campus, for demonstrating excellence in the field of the arts.
Jimise continues to carve out time to create independent artwork for clients, as well as showcase her paintings at festivals throughout Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. She currently resides in Northeast, Washington D.C.
