Goodbye Summer! Hello Fall!

I’m currently in the studio, finally getting some updates in. Im not sure I’m in a space to write too much though It has been an insane ride again. I’m very grateful of all the opportunities. One thing about current studio site is that the Wall/Mural project section has been updated. Lots of amazing projects has taken place here locally in Virginia Beach. Including a Pop up Mural done for Now the owl sits in front of the MOCA as symbol and new identity for our community. A lot of proposals went out as well, some didn’t go through, still pending, some were great and I cant show them because they are dealing with corporations. Some were put on hold. Some I can’t tell what it is or who it is for. But I try my best to keep all informed here with exciting ideas. The studio has mural insurance, contracts, quotes for any kind of jobs so just send me a email and lets chat! For now please check out mural site link HERE. for further viewing and reading. After hurricane dorian leaves I will be starting new mural in NEON Though currently I want to share new art and travel sketchbook stuff. Be safe out there VB!


End of the Year Gratitude Note

I've been wondering on how to create an end of the year post, there is so much I think I need to share and remind. Though sincerely from the bottom of my heart. I am so very happy of all the pop ups I did locally and out of state. Mural opportunity right here in the neighborhood that my child is growing up in. New people and old friendships ignited that I've connected with from charlottesville to new york city. In the end, a transaction no matter how small or big is an relationship. I'm super thank-ful of all the commissions that came in during the holidays. Your love for my art, the weird things I draw and paint. I will continue to persist and continue to dream keeping in mind the realistic sides too. That is always hard for any business owners, but it brings forth clarity and courage that will truly make all of these journeys so worth while. My daughter and husband especially has been an amazing team and support. I couldn't do anything without them. Sending this little note of thank you to all the social media tribes and communities out there! It is so important to KEEP SHINING!! SELF CARE truly is not selfish. I'm always trying to find balance in all the hats that I wear so I can be there fully for everyone as well as myself. Also trusting yourself.. One favorite quote to leave you with by Rumi to help plan the goals you seek. Happy Holidays! and Happy New Year!!  

“What you seek is seeking you.”

No Sleep Till Brooklyn

Well summer vacation for my daughter has started and that means mommy can get a little more sleep in the mornings. It also means weekends will be filled with working all summer without much child care, though I got my focus on and completed three small commissions and it will be sent out right on time as planned today.

On other news is who can sleep when I'll be in NYC this weekend! I'm so excited to be part of this pop up that my friend Toofly has created. If you will be in Brooklyn over this weekend please come say hi! Great talent selling amazing things, hand made from the heart. There will be a sangria bar, rooftop BBQ, henna painting. I miss home a lot all the time. Mostly it's also everyone that I have crossed paths while growing up there. The history that is still there, aging beautiful brownstones to skyscrapers high in the sky. We are one. Peace and love.
