Traveling After Covid 19

Now that we’re traveling again, it’s nice to know that I had no problem finding my bags!!! So this happened… I just flew back from Los Angeles & boy, are my arms tired 😝 Ha! It might be one of the corniest jokes ever, but as we stretch and come out after a long yearContinue reading “Traveling After Covid 19”

Her Art History

Her story. That hand on her shoulder, at times has been heavy. It seemed to hold her back, as much as it was meant to guide. So this happened… After raising my family and being a caretaker for my Mum who had Alzheimer’s, I’m living my childhood dream. However, I wasn’t trained to be aContinue reading “Her Art History”

The Artists’ Art

The Artists22 x 28 So this happened. While I was commissioned to do one piece, I created 3. Someone asked me, how does that happen… for me, my mind is much faster than my hands and the paint dries too quickly. So I move across one canvas onto the next and in this case, ontoContinue reading “The Artists’ Art”

All Eyes Basketball

This little girl who loved basketball, would go to the schoolyard the day after a snowstorm and shovel the snow, just so she could play on a real basketball court with a hoop that had a net on it. Even then, she was bright enough to know that the older boys who wouldn’t let herContinue reading “All Eyes Basketball”

Sunday in Washington Park

Me. Arriving early to the park to play basketball, before the big guys would come and kick me off the court. I could run lay-ups, shoot around and practice without being told that girls couldn’t play. I did and I brought along my own basketball, as they slept in late on Sundays, having partied SaturdayContinue reading “Sunday in Washington Park”

Is it just me, or does this wall need more wall? It’s Friday and for me, Spring is in the air. Yup, I’m feeling light and airy. So while I was looking at the walls, I started thinking… What if I do some more art to hang upside down from the ceiling? Because from myContinue reading “Friday Art”

Her Blue Art

Emotional. That feeling we get, when we’re choked up and frustrated. When it feels like we can’t speak, because the vowels got stuck in our throats. I was inspired to paint this while listening to The Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” #Musicality 🎶

Making Way For Art

This was her first notable achievement, the one in which she would build up her confidence, allow her to take risks and opened the pathway to opportunity, the gateway of happiness. Now she cooks, drives fast cars, directs movies & takes meetings. But one of the early WoW moments in her life was pedaling. TransitioningContinue reading “Making Way For Art”

Cautionary Art

Remembering my nephew as he would toss his daughter up into the air and catch her. Remembering the infectious sound of her giggles. I’d watch them play Peek-A-Boo and Hide-N-Seek. He’d chase her around the living room and into the kitchen. He’d make big loud growling noises and she’d squeal in delight. He’d pounce towardsContinue reading “Cautionary Art”

Art Inspired By Norman

Over the years I’ve tried to express my creativeness in ways that were conducive to my position in life. So, as a mother and wife, I decided to set aside my paper and pen, to raise my daughters. No one told me not to write. How do you formulate those words? But it was self-imposed,Continue reading “Art Inspired By Norman”
