My Art Journey… Continued

Not so long ago, I began to share my art journey. Today, I thought I’d continue to share my foray into the art world, as it returned me to a state of hopefulness that my illness had taken away. By the middle of 2019, I had begun to connect the dots in my life andContinue reading “My Art Journey… Continued”

Thoughtful. Artful. Humbled

My life has been quite a journey. I assure you, if anyone was silly enough to want to write a book about my life, there would be no need for fictionalization. It has been an amazing ride! Of course, some of the names would have to be changed to protect the writer, but the dramaContinue reading “Thoughtful. Artful. Humbled”

Art of a Moment

I haven’t made many abstracts. But this is one of my personal favorites, as it represents both what’s quickly lost, but also that which is remembered and longed for, thoughts that are renamed memories. I’m so honored & proud to have this painting selected to be displayed on a digital billboard in Boston’s busy DownTownContinue reading “Art of a Moment”

Stepping Outside Art

An artist looked at one of my earlier works and said it reminded her that “our lives are framed by our families,” and it stuck with me, because unlike our friends, we don’t get to choose our families. And I thought about what stepping out of that frame would look like. For me, being aContinue reading “Stepping Outside Art”

The Art of Conversation

Now? #amwriting✍️ A bunch of questions, answered in a ledger, filled with humorous stories of this life & #HowIGotHere titled: “How Many Folks, Exactly Does It Take To Hold A Good Woman Up?” Because I’m tired, part of my “Can We Talk” Series that will drop as soon as it gets picked up. Debating whetherContinue reading “The Art of Conversation”

Sharing My Art Journey… Pt 4

I started to explore the world of art, not as a creator, not as a business, not as an admirer, but as a patron. I wanted to understand who bought art, why did they buy what they bought. Who collected art and who was making money from all that art being bought and sold. Sadly,Continue reading “Sharing My Art Journey… Pt 4”

Sharing My Art Journey … pt 1

February 2, 2022: Last night, an amazing thing happened, I literally watched fourteen of my paintings float across my television screen in the opening scene of episode 104 of Ava DuVernay’s newest show, Naomi – airing Tuesday nights @ 9pm ET on The CW Network and streaming for free on The CW App. It wasContinue reading “Sharing My Art Journey … pt 1”

My FaceBook Art

I’m an artist. There, I’ve said it. Over the past four years, I’ve posted a lot of art on social media. It’s as much of a healing process as it is therapeutic for me. Never did I expect the level of success that I’ve gained from having put my work “out there”. Never did IContinue reading “My FaceBook Art”

Yes, Art Can Make Us Smile

Hot Damn! It’s happening, tomorrow my solo exhibition will be installed on Billboard Hope!!! When I was a kid, I used to walk past this billboard in Boston’s historical John Elliot Square, almost every day. Back then the ad space was used to sell negatives, like cigarettes and alcohol. And as you might imagine, theyContinue reading “Yes, Art Can Make Us Smile”
