This biography from the Archives of AskART:
African-American artist Mavis Pusey was born in 1928 in Jamaica, West Indies.  Pusey began her studies in the Arts Students League* in New York, originally studying fashion but switching her interest to printmaking, studying with Will Barnet at the Art Students League.

Further studies took her to London, where she worked at the Birgit Schold Workshop, then back to New York and finally to Virginia, where she received her B.A. at Mary Baldwin College.  Between 1969 and 1972 she worked at the Robert Blackburn Workshop and later at the New School for Social Research* in New York.  She exhibited with Louis Soulanges in Paris, Curwen Gallery in London and AAA in New York.

Her art has been exhibited internationally in galleries, collections, and solo and group exhibitions. She has taught at various educational institutions, including Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts*; Drew University, N.J.; New School for Social Research, N.Y.; and more.

She is affiliated with Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors in N.Y.; the National Museum of Women in the Arts; and the Visual Artists and Galleries Association to name a few.

Pusey writes, "Tempo and movement hold onto a color and texture to convey the tension that is the heartbeat of the city. As an abstract-geometric artist, I have always been inspired by my environment. I see realistic shapes before I transform them into abstract forms"
