Placing it out there, Yes I had some difficulties this year with relationship, with family where it has affected me deeply.

As a result for my on-going recovery I leaned on to Art to rescue me. Art, for me have always been a vehicle for me to express feelings that I normally wouldn't utter in public.

This time around, Lexi Bella called and asked if I was interested in dong an all female art show. I was like "Heck yea !", and the process to vent through my art was made possible!

Lexi Bella, Danielle Mastrion, Laurie Marckiewicz, and Mirandom were apart of this show, and I was so lucky to have them as close friends!

The Cardboard obsession continued as previous blogs, adn this time I wanted to start a new method of shaping these ideas into Living beings, in the manner in which  know best, Drawing....

Below are the process of my ideas made into forms. The titles are :  1.) LOYALTY, 2) Bruning Bridges, and 3) Coming out of my Shell

The work is exceptional as usual, and your talent never ceases to amaze me. Truly.

The RAW 5 show was incredible as well and what a group of beautiful & talented women. So happy I was able to share in the event with my friends.

It is often pain and or trails in our lives, that bring us the greatest source of inspiration, fire & push. The important thing is that we channel that negativity(as you have)and use our talents to bring out the positive light & love, which clearly you did.

I adore you and your work mama. Keep grindin', keep inspiring.
