I love Rainbows...

Rainbows have always fascinated me. As a child they showed up in nearly every drawing I created. When I shop I immediately gravitate to the most bright and vivid colors. Whether it represents God's covenent with mankind or the Irish tale of the pot of gold at the end, rainbows are truly inspiring. The color rainbows hold are like a palette for life. As an artist these colors are essential for re-creating vivid memories of scattered dreams and visions. I cannot imagine a colorless world. It would still be beautiful, but without diversity and contrast.I remember the first rainbow I ever saw, I was about four years young. I found it so amazing that something so beautiful could find it's way ...

Faith Walk

Faith, something many of us live by to survive, yet it is given such little attention in our daily walks. There is so much discussion when it comes to faith and for millions of years it has mostly been used in a religious context. This is probably the part where you think I'm going to go all religious...I'm not. What or who you believe in is your business. Religion is not required in order to have faith, nor is faith something that you have to learn. Faith is gifted to each and every one of us from the moment we are conceived and it is our responsibility to keep and strengthen it. This very valuable part of our journey as human beings is essential to understanding lifes ...

When I was approached in October about dressing up some walls with custom, painted murals for a new restaurant opening in Bridgeport I was excited! The restaurant specialized in Jamaican Caribbean Cuisine which happens to be a favorite of mine. I knew the owner personally and was more than happy to be a part of the renovation and beautification team.Her vision was simple; A large mural of Bob Marley on one wall and a large map of Jamaica on the other. I definitely had my work cut out because I had to work around the crew that was coming in to break down the old and build the new. I had approximately three weeks or so to get the job done before the planned opening of December 1st. Each wall ...

I love Rainbows...

In October, 2014 I made the decision to take a leap of faith and follow my dream of being a full time artist. I gave notice to my job in December and by January the journey began.It has now been just about six months and I can honestly say it's the best decision I could have made. I don't have a bunch of money saved up or a lineup of investors but I do have will, determination, heart, talent, a wonderful support system and a whole lot of faith.Doors have not stopped opening since the leap and so I am going through the doors that seem right for me. Discernment is important in this journey and I trust in myself to make the right decisions for me and my family.Up until now I have honestly been ...
