*FLY LADY DI* A dynamic artist

Very fortunate to have met such a bright spirit!
A while back I met this awesome spirit via someone else's myspace page, during the early cold months of 2008. Later on that same year, I was invited to participate at an Art Battle which so happen to have not only other dynamic artist, but as well the brilliant artist Fly Lady Di. I was even more so intimidated.

After the show, and on to others, I frequently saw her at other events all over the city. Then I found out towards the end of 2008, Miss Fly Lady Di left NYC to her home town far away( TORONTO ). Not sure if you do know her, but if you did, you can appreciate how soulful and dynamic her art works were, and in turn also very influential.

Below is a short video of her success here in NYC, and all the people she was able to encounter in her art journeys. I was so honored that she placed me as one of her "peeps" at the very last of her up incoming artist on NYC. Thank you very much *Princess* for placing me in your universe of artists.
