The Art of Healing

A few years ago, I was going through a major transition and having such a difficult time understanding the spiritual shift that was occurring in me. Someone recommended that I read a book called "The Four Agreements". I don't really read books because my attention span is equivalent to that of a fruit fly near wine. So, the idea of reading an entire book was truly overwhelming. I got the audio book and listened over a few days as I traveled to and from my daily endeavors.The book was poignant, simple, provocative and honestly life changing. I don't know that I was ready for the wisdom the book had to offer at the time. Transition is distracting and much of what I heard was lost in ...

The Art of Healing

The ART of Letting Go It's been more than a year since I've written a blog post. Life has been happening but I'm glad to be back!When I was seven years old, my parents were divorced. The aftermath has been a lifetime long. I know you are probably wondering what this post has to do with art, stay with me. My parents’ divorce was the first of many disappointments I would have to face in this life, but it was also the catalyst for so many beautiful things to come. During and after their divorce, I needed desperately to understand why this happened to our little family. I was a quiet child and often found it difficult to form the appropriate words to express what I was feeling, I ...

The Art of Healing

Ever since I was a little girl I had the innate feeling that there were angels watching over me. My grandma Alice passed away four years before I was born and I always felt a strong connection to her even though I had never met her in person. I have been told that she was a quiet woman but stern. A woman who took care of her family first and made sure they took care of each other. I was named after her and though I am not very quiet these days, I am very quiet by nature and stern. I'd like to think that I have some of the amazing traits of my late grandmother as well as many others who came before me. I've never been the type of person to focus too much on the past but when I became a mom I ...

Opportunity Knocks

The Art of Healing

Have you ever looked back and wondered how everything happened so fast? In those moments I wish that I kept a journal to have documented every crack, window and door that has opened ever since I jumped off of that cliff. I have been so busy that even on my "slow" days I am still busy with my next project. I log onto my social media sometimes just to catch up with my progression because I forget to take pictures on occasion.When an opportunity passes you by and you don't realize it until much later when it can't be revisited, it is not a good feeling. When I decided to become a full time artist it was a very spiritual decision, a total leap of faith because there was no plan. Everyday ...

The Art of Healing

In my years as an emerging artist, I have created many pieces of work, all personal, and all created with a meaning and story behind it. Although all of my work is very personal and meaningful to me, the latest piece I am currently painting the final phases on has to be one of the most special. The process of creating "Queendom" which is what I have been inspired to name her, has been an inspiring process.I was staring at an image of Africa on the map one day while doing some research when I noticed that if mirrored, the continent looked like butterfly wings. The image of a woman wearing those wings immediately entered my mind and I knew I had to create it. She was a dancer, one that ...
