Banana Leaves & Royalty
This painting was a quick manifestation inspired by a combination of the musical artist Patra, the photography of my good friend Reesee Ziggazagga, & the beautiful voice of singer Brent Faiyaz in the song “No one Knows.”
My second artshow was nothing short of amazing. It was blessed with healthy vegan soul food by Cocktail Andreena! (@cocktaildreena) , we displayed photography from my photoshoot with my mentor Reesee Ziggazagga (@ziggazaggastudio), and had the dopest DJ Killa Kels (@killaxkels).
I’m always grateful to create events that fuse creativity, love, & passions!
Keep an eye out for pictures!*
Interesting enough all three of my children are Scorpio Ascendants (Rising sign). My Sun Sign is an Aries but my Sun lives in the 8th House. Who is the ruler of the 8th House? Scorpio.
This mysterious sign is extremely psychic and I feel as though learning about the influences this sign has on me has helped me access a new way of thinking & helped me accept my feminine energy.
This painting shows the watery signs dominance & power as she creates waves in the ocean.
Growth is inevitable. Children grow so rapidly before you but never forget you are growing in front of them. I prayed to be free from my unhappy life so I could actually reach my truest potential. I saw many times over, the people I was surrounded by were a by product of my own mind being hazardous.
Take that in. I noticed my environment and the people within it were a by product of my mind without clarity.
It takes away my power to say anything outside of the truest realization… that I create my own world.
We constantly believe well something outside of me happened that is bad and then we create a paradigm where there is something opposing you.
No one wishes bad on themselves. Don’t misinterpret this as God, Universe is ever punishing you.
There are no punishments.
There is only the Universal Laws & how those laws respond to your Vibration. Frequency is an inherent feeling within us all whether it’s high or low is dependent on the condition of the subconscious mind.
My children are my honest to Gods greatest gift. I never understood the responsibility I hold to flourishing until I realized they look up to me. That not only am I in charge of my frequency but I’m in charge of allowing theirs to unfold the way it’s meant to without any influence of my beliefs.
This desire to be a great mother has manifested more for my life than anything else.
I bounce between Black Art & Native Art often in my styles. I strongly believe my ancestors use me as a conduit to express.
So these two pieces are a reflection of that very notion. I had a dry sprout started by a gallery I attended in hopes to get my work out there but it was just nothing I envisioned. So obviously traveling so far can leave you a little flustered; until I realized the image of the owl followed me all day long.
I was also overcome by emotions of stagnancy and that’s what brought along the rain. Rainy days are beautiful because it’s inevitable the grass is greener the next day.
Inspired by the beautiful duet Zhané from the 90s. Referenced from the music video “Sending My Love”
These beauties were featured at “Queendom” an event held by Black Women Bridging Borders at York University. They were sold by the end of the night!!!
