The exhibition will feature works from various series including Malibu Sunset. “My inspiration came from watching the beautiful, colorful sunsets at Rick’s Café in Negril, Jamaica, W.I. and the incredible turquoise hues, shades of blue/green colors of the Ocean and amazing waves. This picture was vivid in my mind and I literally looked forward to returning so that I could create something beautiful on canvas from memory!”

Tepedino cited artists such as Van Gogh, Pollack who have inspired her to create her paintings. She also added that music such as contemporary jazz, reggae, classical music and the blues also bring inspiration.
