Art has been a lifelong staple for Ms. Chalif, who grew up admiring great artists and artwork. When it came to decide what she wanted to do in her life, the decision was made easy by following her passion. She first graduated from the Parsons School of Design with honors in 1953 before attending New York University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in art education. Not long after earning her degrees, Mc. Chalif became a buyer for I. Magnin & Co. and stayed at the firm for the remainder of the 1950s. In the 1960s, she picked up being an artist, sculptor and painter full time, exploring different themes in her work and gaining recognition with numerous exhibits. In addition to her career as an artist, Ms. Chalif cofounded, directed, and has served as the honorary president of the Neuropathy Association.
Ms. Chalif’s art has been in exhibitions and collections across the United States in private, group, and one-woman shows. Her art was featured as part of the permanent collection in the World Trade Center, and has been featured in similar capacities at the Zimmerli Art Museum, the US Home Corp., and the Guild Hall Museum. Her art has graced the spaces of the Sculpture Garden of the Gus & Judy Lieber Museum, the Garrison Arts Center, the Arlene Bujese Gallery, the Benson Gallery, the Marymount Manhattan College Gallery, and Ashwagh Gallery. In 2001, she authored and illustrated “Exercising with Neuropathy.”
Outside of her work as an artist and business leader, she has been involved with the Women’s Caucus for Art, the Women in Arts Foundation, the National Association of Women Artists and the New York Society of Women Artists. She considers her art being feature in the World Trade Center as one of her most honored career achievements. She credits her success to her family, who were all artists and writers.
