Our goals

Art has been a foundation in society since walls in caves were the only available canvases. Marketing and sales has always been a challenge for artists, going back through history when patrons were the main source of livelihood. Long Island Portfolio is dedicated to helping artists of every kind to promote themselves and the art they create. We provide world class photography to accompany featured artist articles driven by interviews, often in their own words.

As art evolves, we will reflect the changes and messages in our content, with articles on current happenings in the art world, with events and even classified ads to help support artists sales.

Please help you favorite painter, sculptor, singer, musician, writer, dancer, architect, chef, choreographer, photographer, digital or tattoo artists increase their branding on Long Island or in New York City by nominating them to be a featured artist.

    Long Island’s newest art gallery, M Frank Gallery, just opened their doors for a premiere first exhibit in Syosset in Nassau County. When I interviewed Maya Frank, artist and gallery owner for our premiere issue, she told me it was her dream to open a gallery to showcase her work. She is hoping to support fellow artists, businesses with a place for networking and charities for a place to host fund raisers of all kinds. M Frank Gallery opens with walls adorned with Maya’s work, sized from small drawings to bigger than life sized paintings. The gallery also features fashionwear and accessories like beautiful handbags designed by Maya, with her art featured in the design. Born in Russia, Maya has lived in various countries, including Israel before moving to the US. In addition to painting, Maya has performed in ballet and acts in TV in NY based series. A lover of cars, Maya also has a few classic cars that are featured in movies and TV.

  • Gabrielle Baker – Artist Statement

    currently living in Harlem, NY.  My journey as an artist began at age ten at the Art Students’ League in New York City in a watercolor class led my Mrs. Ethel Katz.  I used my portfolio of paintings I created there as my entrance application to Music and Art High School.  Unfortunately, as I approached college-age, I was discouraged by “well intentioned” adults in my life from pursuing art as a vocation.  I eventually lost interest in painting and chose other career options, however, there was always a gnawing question in the back of my mind “why aren’t you painting?”  Along the way, several people pushed and prodded me to get back to painting, but I only went as far as dibbling and dabbling as a hobbyist. 

    Three things reignited my passion to paint after a thirty plus year hiatus.  To re-immerse myself in painting, I took a course at Parson’s School of Design and I was encouraged by one of my instructors to “get serious” about my art.   Second, during a meditation course called “Finding Your Purpose,” I had a vision of a Native American woman who told me that my purpose was to “bring beauty to the earth.”  Third, I entered my first abstract painting of Copper Metal into a 2015 Montclair, NJ exhibit just for the experience. To my surprise – it was purchased!  I took this as a clue from the Universe that I should keep going and I quickly got back on track.
