Aminah came from a family of artists and musicians. She first started creating folk art and painted furniture, and she maintained a show room at the World Trade Center at Dallas Market Design Center. This grew into a highly successful business creating customized decor for KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell for franchise owners for over 500 restaurants nationwide. She also managed a gallery for many years in San Antonio and taught classes on creativity. Oils on canvas, painted furniture, and folk art are her current passions, with an emphasis on color and whisper of spirtiuality.
