I started drawing / scribbling / doodling in a book as a means of expressing myself. I then started adding words to the images as a way of defining the source or image and what came about was an Art Journal that inspired people and myself. I could not stop, all i wanted to do was make an entry. This i shared with youth groups and womens groups and saw how it affected them first hand. I continue to share my entries in hopes that they will heal, continue to inspire, educate, motivate and facilitate a movement of change on this earth.
My work over the years has been known to be motivational, to create dialogue, emotion, advocacy, empowerment and awareness. I take the good and bad and create feeling with color, shape and form. Art for me is not a trend, I am not looking to create a popular scene or a fad. My art comes from a place of feeling, emotion and love that is very much a lifestyle for me. My Art Journal submissions will be available as notecards, affirmation cards and so much more. I will continue to use them as a source of inspiration for my students and in my workshops to women and young girls. Every year since 2005 I have designed limited edition notecards and calendars that are sold at local street festivals, fairs and on my online store, but as i say to the many that purchase the sets every year. They are much more that just a note card or calendar. They are a piece of art that fills the soul, an affirmation of life, reality and culture.
