Whats NEW......with .... me

After what happened to Japan, my sorrow for the many death had my heart aching for such a long time, that it got me stuck in a trance... and while the regular mother at home as well as my art career routine to pursue my art dreams where at hand, my spiritual connection to mother nature and those people that perish, lingered in my heart as well as n my soul... I saw my self FROZEN

I was mental stuck, emotionally finding a way to find that bridge back to reality, and I did find it after a personal tragedy that happened this Spring of 2011.

Then the Light was sparked....

Mission: It is my responsibility to help the young ones cope with the strange world of finding a way to CO EXISTS to where we are now, and learn just the positive outlets of ones personal gift.

I was privileged enough to be apart of many exciting programs where I taught young folks about PASSION about the arts, as well as the courage to pursue via the means of focusing ones desire to make it REAL enough for them....

The Run Down...

A music Video that I was gratefully able to complete with many obstacles and lengthy adjustments , and the running around to get it done, as well keeping the harmony of my house hold, art art career! Took an estimate of a few month , and nothing happen.. ( those that know me understand what I'm talking about)


my son graduation to the 1 FIRST GRADE !!!!!

Talking to young folks about their future... even if its not Art related, and how its important .... it is to FIND what you LOVE....

More pics soon!

Then beig on TV, gracious enough from a Brooklyn programmer by the name of Maron who established, FOR FATHERS, where they bring out the importance of being a positive ROLE model for their children and abolish the negative stigma about the stereo types about the Urban traditions . I was not expecting this, but there was also a Televising crew by the name of: NEW YORK LINKZ, where they caught me painting at their shop!

 even had a great adventure with my son in the BRONX, painting Live , but their was way too many curse words and beyond pent out Sexually older folks for many sons ears, I had to create my art and bail out QUICK FAST! Love them folks, but a mother role is to provide positive outlets where knowledge of self is spread evenly in proper amounts! lol

I was able to also make some brief art works on Sneakers by the help of SEN - ONE, and his friend, Terry.

I even painting near my neighborhood, and I knew not many would go and see me.. most LATINOS don't really think its a good job to start with and be what you call it.. worth  wild or realistic!... But I did it to help explain that ART was established by our indigenous roots from the get go... do the Research ! * CITY COLLEGE
