Wall of Words for A.R.T.E.'s 2021 Virtual Fundraiser
This painting was created live during the ARTE virtual annual fundraiser. The attendants answered to the question: What does your vision of a more just world look like? And from those answers I took key words and created this painting.
This summer has been pretty interesting due to the pandemic. All the staple events have gone virtual or have been cancelled. This year it was the 10th anniversary of the New Village Music Festival and the organizers decided to do something small with a few artists and one band. I was happy to come out and see people I haven't seen in a while. Painting outdoors is always plus! I decided I was going to create something for a friend that is having her second girl. I always like to gift Art, I try to think of something they will be able to use now but that it will last a little longer that only when they are babies. I created this two paintings so they realize how amazing they are and that Black Girls are MAGIC!
Live Painting at Boogie at the Boulevard 2019
Another amazing day at Boogie at the Boulevard. I put together 5 amazing artists to paint live with me and the Bronx Community. Earlier in the week I asked through my social media what they would like me to paint and "Cats & Butterflies" was a pretty awesome answer, so this is my take on it! It's always so much fun to go out, paint, talk to the community, share time, laughs and dance moves! Thank you to the artists, to the volunteers and to all the friends that came out to Boogie on the Boulevard once more.
New Village Music Festival 2019
So many artists and public gathered at Tompkins Square Park to participate in the 9th Music Festival. I was invited to come and paint live during the concert. I met great artists and had the best time in a wonderful Lower East Side afternoon! I continued with my series "Nature is Watching You" with a special Still Life Composition.
BxArts Factory Block pARTy 2019
I recreated the logo I made for the Block pARTy, summer inspired, emanating all types of art from a fire hydrant.
