I was never 100% confident about my work and I think like many emerging artist, you just feel like you're not good enough compared to...
I've been creating all my life. For as long as I could remember. My art was for me. For my pleasure only. It wasn't to be exhibited and shared with the world. It was JUST a little hobby.
As I got older, I felt the need to share this gift. Today, I am now aware that my art is my purpose. I have an important message to share and I was given this talent to do just that.
Flamingo Head was created in 2015. It was the start of my self realization and I didn't even know it.
The more I create today and look back at my work from 3 years ago- I'm like ohhhh shitttttt. I was telling MYSELF something that I wasn't even aware of.

This is probably on of my FAVORITE pieces of art I've ever made. It's speaks of me and for so many women across the globe.
A weird ass looking animal in a bad ass dress. Posted up on the boardwalk like yeah - I'm that b*tch. It's like even when you don't feel as beautiful, or as confident or sure of yourself, you still show up and show out.
You show up for yourself.
I've had her for 3 years until someone bought her. I'm happy to let her go and so she can share her story in someone else's home.
