Eden, 2016, Acrylic on canvas, 18 in x 24 in

Kamiesha graduated from the Parsons School of Design in 1999, earning a BBA degree in Fashion Marketing. After starting her career at Polo Ralph Lauren, Kamiesha began exploring her artistic sensitivities through designing luxury handbags. In 2005, she launched her own company, Alric Suba LLC, which debuted at Barneys New York and was carried in stores globally. Continuing to refine her use of color, pattern and texture, in 2008 she joined renowned retailer Henri Bendel to develop its private label handbags and accessories business. Most recently, after starting a family, Kamiesha incorporated her years of artistic experience into painting, where her passion has flourished. One of Kamiesha’s early works, Eden, representing a new beginning, was chosen as a regional semi-finalist piece for the “2016 Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.” While continuing to produce her art, Kamiesha looks forward to the opportunity to showcase her work more broadly. Kamiesha was born in Westmoreland, Jamaica, and currently lives and works in New York City with her husband and two children. Her works can be found in private collections throughout the United States.
