Mavis Pusey at The Annex Galleries

African-American artist Mavis Pusey was born in Kingston, Jamaica on September 17, 1928, and grew up in the small rural village of Retreat. Her aunt taught her to sew and by the age of nine, Mavis was designing and making her own clothes. Throughout her youth what she wanted to do was to study fashion in America. She left Jamaica at the age of eighteen for the famous Art Students’ League in Manhattan and earned her way by sewing couture wedding gowns.
