Lucinda Abra lives in an old 1800s cooperative creamery, which morphed into a local dance hall before rebirthing again as a local polling location. A storyteller at heart, Abra uses the visual arts and the written word to illuminate compassion and empathy for the human condition and use her skills as an inspirational reach toward Spirit.

Her daughter’s unexpected and horrific death brought Abra to an urgent crossroads. She would either perish from grief or rise up, intent on using her life for the gifts given to her. Although she had been writing and painting since early childhood, it was then that the Arts became the very foundation of life.

Lucinda Abra reads her stories and poetry at story slams and readings and has contributed to the National Association of Women Artists newsletter, NAWA NOW, and Hudson Valley’s Chronogram Magazine. A working artist, her employment is as a sculpting assistant and fabricator. Her previous employment included the Erotic Art Gallery in NYC and the Tallix Foundry in Beacon, N.Y., working on sculptures by Koons, Schnabel, Stella, Nancy Graves, and many others. She was also an assistant to Mary Frank and Al Held. Abra’s art has been featured in zines and c.d. covers. Her artwork can be found in collections across the U.S. and Europe.
