Wonderful Electric

Ambling about the city sidewalks, we inevitably ended up along Delmar, a thoroughfare that extends east to downtown… and quite honestly, one of my favorite places of all-time. The diverse atmosphere that is seriously ready for just about anything, strikes me as impossibly cool and somehow, wickedly entertaining.

After several random-friendly conversations, it still amazes me how this jacket can be the topic of such curiosity… maybe it’s the army of blindingly-garish silver studs or the self-exalted shoulder pads that undoubtedly have a mind of their own. But every time, its narcissistic 80’s revival seems to trump all the others left jealously crammed in my closet.

Currently: sipping Sangria with good company
Mood: breezy





(Vintage jacket, Urban Outfitters jeans, Bakers heels, Topshop tee, F21 tank, Nordstrom bag)

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

Wooden Ophelia Distressed Moon Shelf

Just added this pretty 'Distressed Crescent Moon Shelf' to my shop. So happy with the way this one turned out.

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
