All photos taken on an iphone 7+

I’m going to start this entry with a big thank you. Thank you to everyone who came out last night, and showed support for such a great cause.
Write Off Cancer, is a group exhibition that was curated on the behalf of legendary graffiti queen, Diva. This benefit featured original works for sale, from a collective group of artists. All the proceeds fro this exhibition will be going to help Queen Diva with medical expenses and her battle with cancer.

Kaystar, the beautiful soul that she is asked me if I wanted to be a part of this installation. It was bit last minute for me with the move and all, but there was no way I was going to say no. I happily donated 4 older pieces I had hanging out in my bedroom. Two of the pieces were displayed,while the other two will be auctioned off, at an online auction. That link is coming soon, so please stayed posted.

The love and support was so real. It was such a great turnout.
I’ll update this post with a quick recap video of the night. See you guys soon!

New Artwork: Pop

Dating is like  bubble gum, at first it tastes better than anything you could have ever imagined, and then it starts losing it’s flavor.

The newest piece to the bunch. Fun fact, I had a pink leather jacket just like that when I was about 14 years old. Kinda wish I could find that now… I showed my mother this illustration, and she smiled like “hey! you  had a jacket just like that!”

Event: Fem.Is.In

artwork by : Lady Pink
artwork by: Queen Andrea

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to attend art shows. It’s been a little while, but Fem.Is.In was a great way to get me going again. Seeing Swoon, Queen Andrea and Lady Pink‘s pieces in person again, are always a reminder to get my craft together. The push to start creating and stop making excuses. Great show Ladies!

You’re Invited: An All Alpha Female Experience Exhibit


Hello my lovelies.

Remember when I said I will be showcasing my work at an all women art installation? No!?
Well, ok, I’m telling you now.
You are all formally invited to present your beautiful souls at The All Alpha Female Experience. I will be presenting new pieces alongside other talented women. And what better way to celebrate women’s month, than by supporting women!

The gallery is located at 1009 Broadway, Brooklyn NY 11221, and  is closest to the M, J & Z lines on the Myrtle, Broadway stop. The show will start at 8pm and run until 1 in the morning. So no excuses!
There’s a small $10 fee at entry, which is suffice for the free wine and appetizers you’ll be able to gulp down.

I can’t wait to meet you all.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to visit the Facebook page for the event or contact me below and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Besos!

New Artwork: Yemoya

After finishing this piece, I later realized she reminded me of Yemoya. Yemoya is the major water deity from the Yoruba religion. She is the protectress of all women, she over-sees deep secrets & ancient secrets. I learned about her and other Orishas, from Santeria on my recent trip to Cuba.

 

It’s Tuesday morning. We might be covered in snow, but I’m reflecting back on island times. The warm weather, the slight breeze, the waves that don’t only say hello.
I decided to play with lines today, but I should really take advantage of this day off, and work on some commission pieces.
Happy Snow Day!

Family: Bingo and Babies

If you’ve been around long enough, you know I usually start off with “Sundays are for family”. Well this Sunday, qualifies as well. When you have friends who have stuck around for many years, you know that’s family by initiation.
Harlie is three months already. My gorgeous god-daughter. she’s kicking like the soccer player she’s trying to become.

Alex came over to watch some movies with us, Ivelisse came after with her too cute daughter Kaylee… her cheeks, my goodness, I just want to squeeze them. Jhonny came by a little later, and it was so nice to see him feeding his god daughter, he’s so smitten with her. He kept saying he was going to steal her away! (NEVER!)

We started to play Bingo, and Kiki and Mami ended up kicking my ass. I’m going to have to start thinking of better bets, because since Kiki won, he gets to choose the movie for next Sunday… and you know it’s going to be some action movie with blood and a whole bunch of fighting.

Wait until I win a round, chick flicks all day!
