I have been busy lately doing what I like to do. During the winter it is easier to stay inside, and I really like introducing adults into the awesome world of creating art.
Partnering with Wonderfully Made, an organization that empowers families to raise socially and emotionally healthy children to foster positive and meaningful relationships at home and in a school setting; we created a free workshop for parents to spend the night on their own. Sometimes taking the time for yourself is not easy with children around. We shared a magical night creating Ink-Blots and sharing stories. We started a series Bringing Art Into My Life will continue with similar events soon.
I also lead the Paint the Night Away event with BxArts Factory, where a group of adults replicated a painting I designed specially for that night. I really enjoyed teaching them about color mixing and empowering their creativity to take over their fears of "Am I doing it wrong?" I will be teaching more of those events soon. Subscribe to my newsletter so I can keep you posted!!

This is the latest mural I've done, to celebrate the The Bronx Music Heritage Center will be opening a new building soon. They are on a mission to beautify the Melrose area where the new building is going to be placed. For that mission, WHEDco has partnered with BxArts Factory. We will be bringing artists to work with the community and make the area happier.
I spent a couple of days doing what I do best, creating a colorful piece of art that everyone can enjoy. Visit this mural and other beautiful murals at 163rd St and Melrose Ave, in The Bronx, New York. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph Serrano and KayLove.
I want to thank Vanezza and Allison who came out to spray some paint and they were a great help!!
With my Eye-Flowers (and sometimes Skull-Flowers) I want to send a message to the viewers, to make them reflect in what we are doing to Mother Nature. I've always been in the green side, and some of the things we are doing to this wold are already coming back to us. We can't keep trashing the oceans and burning our trees to plant transgenic soy beans. Just think about it.
This has been a very busy summer; one of the things I have done is organizing a live painting event at Boogie on the Boulevard with BxArts Factory and HeavenBound7 Sk8 Shop. Henry, the owner of the store, repurposed about 20 old skate decks sanded them and prep them to be painted. Many artists came out that day to encourage the community to be healthy and to show how every artist has a process and creativity is everywhere!
Thanks to Alex Fernandez, Alexis Mendoza, Elizabeth Ortiz, Giannina Gutierrez, Karen Pedrosa, Laura Alvarez, Leo Mojica, Louis Nieves, Natalia Zamparini, Shak Castillo, Steven McKenzie, Vanezza Cruz, Xavier Figueroa, and Yazmeen Collazo for your artistry and commitment! Because you all did an awesome job.

As Robert Wadell says in his exhibition review - “I’m Every Woman” examines the notion of words as complement and accusation together. The panels give a left, back and right of a headless woman with words whispered or shouted around the subject as in a mug shot where sometimes people blame, shame and talk about a woman just for being who she is.-
