Peace to all on this gorgeous Monday in Florida! Can you tell how happy I look on this pic? Well, I was in Tulum Mexico last week doing some mindful and intentional work, I was doing my Wellness coach work, preparing healthy meals and sharing nutrition with a group of 12 people at a Yoga retreat for Reset, detox and renew your life project! It was such an awesome experince regardless the moments that some times don't go so smooth in life, we made of this retreat an unforgettable healing experience!
Some of my GLH followers know that I am a holistic Wellness Coach, I guide people to truly start to change their life that they wish for a more meaningful and purposeful experience in our earth!
During my 10 years of been a Visual & Henna Artist, I had guided beautiful souls, and their tremendous feedback I was receiving from some of my clients on how I was impacting their lives, allowed me to take the next step to become a Wellness Coach 2 years ago, so I could support them and better serve them! Thank you all for your constant support! 🙏✨💕

Throwing it back this Monday to three years ago and this commission done for a friend who had survived a bout with cancer and in celebration, decided to take herself on several treks around the world, including Mt. Kilimanjaro. (Badass, no?) she wanted a large piece for her new home that represented these treks in a somewhat abstract way. We came up with the idea of a jungle floor, with colors and light that you might see as you’re walking through ferns and tall trees with soft light filtering through. This was the final product (shot in my space before transporting to its new home!). 😊👩🎨🌿🌴🍃🐅🌿☀️💚 @efrye0 honored to do this painting with a special meaning! 😍
Art was not meant to look "beautiful", it was meant to make you feel something.
This is why loving Art is so easy. The pretty pieces are admired, the pieces that aren't "pretty" are considered deep, and the more you try to figure it out, the more beautiful, deep and meaningful it becomes.
Loving yourself is the hard part. It's easier to love an "ugly" painting, than something you see as an imperfection about youryourself.
I think it is important to remember that YOU ARE ART TOO. Just like paintings, each imperfection is a detail unique to you that makes up the amazing human you are. As a person you are a collection of all the little details about yourself that seem unimportant.
Once you learn to love yourself and every little detail that makes up who you are , you will learn that you are the greatest masterpiece of all.
I have such a difficult time photographing my sculptures to capture them in a way that conveys their significance...they just look a little scrappy before they get their finishing details...
I will press on with my post anyway, believing that most of my peeps here will understand the process and be able to envision it! .
I just got the green light to share my progress of this super special piece! It’s for my D-Bear, baby mama. It’s going to be great...😬... when it’s done! Promise!! .
As most of you know, @deannahamsleyartwork is a super talented painter, married to a very tall and handsome man. This piece is for her and her boo-thang! He is holding her close as she paints ON HIS HEART!! .
😍❤️ I mean, WOW!! ❤️😍
It was totally her idea! And a great one!! They (the figures) will also be looking at each other, (him, down, and her, up). She told me, casually over coffee, that when she first started dating him, that she saw herself in his eyes! 😍 Awww! I love that! Cause when I looked in my husbands eyes I just saw gold flecks and thought that was good enough to commit my life to him...😳😆!! Sooooo yes, they will be locked in on each other’s eyes. .
Another fun detail is that she tucks her left hand behind her back while she paints with her right! Fun fact!
She is stepping into him as he is pulling her in AND the best part of all??!! I will give her this piece, 90% finished and she is going to put her own painting on his heart!!! .
Yep, another collaboration with my girl!! Buuuut this time our love baby will live in her home! With her...and her husband. Which complicates our relationship with our social media following!! Or maybe it’s just me, making things complicated...
Talk amongst yourselves.
Mesmerized by the work of artist Brittany F at the Bizarre Bazaar pop-up art fair this weekend. Forgive my awful photos - these pictures deserve non-reflective museum glass and frankly I think they deserve a museum showing. I’m not remotely an art expert, I just go and look at it a lot. I feel like displayed together in a serious setting like inside the Decordova or something, these could be stunning and meaningful. I didn’t buy them because no idea where to hang them, but I may go back today. If they’re still there that is. Proof that “outsider art” is still art. .

“Creeb” for sale @bar41oakland . All proceeds go to California fire victims. I was inspired by @creebart to donate some original art to contribute to those in need. So He was my muse for this painting. Fire victims were not the only ones who felt the wrath of the flames. Even so far away many took to wearing masks bc the smoke filled the air. Reminds me more and more how much we need God’s Kingdom to come and how many people need practical help.it moves me to want to do more.
Swipe for details 💫
This is a triptych piece I made for friends of mine and I'm super happy with it. I love doing faces even though that's super challenging, but this was a fun break for me and allowed me to experiment. Also I wanted something they would actually hang on their wall 😂

The male face is a jigsaw.

A young faced educated type
Weirdo-disenfranchised. $ signs is how our bodies is often put in hierachy above of who we are in entertainment, many industries. View us blackmen as a piece of 🍖 try to cash-in on us while having us a tool.
Female Side: Is a mystery,constantly changing or chamelioning to whatevers trending or 🔥 atm
Unknown. Men like me choose to BUILD/BETTER her > BREAK/BASH her mysterious mask!! Her body often told its a goddess 👑 only when half buttnakid like in this illustration or fully buttnakid lol

Lewd/nudes saturate and hit big numbers its a 💎 indeed for her. On the gram/wshh etc.

Leaf or Bird

Are you the leaf or the bird? .
When the wind is blowing hard, are you the leaf, going wherever the wind takes it?
Or are you the bird, fighting to fly its own path even if it is against the wind? .
Most of the time most of us are leaves. We let ourselves be moved by outside forces, by circumstances. Did you really choose your job? Or was it a matter of happenstance? Before Tinder and online dating, over 70% of marriages were between people who either worked together or lived nearby. The person you spent your life with, depended on geography, not on your decision. .
Going with the wind is reasonable, it's prudent. It is safe to go with the wind. But is a life lived avoiding risk relaly such a great life?
Going with the wind is easy. But is a life lived avoiding hardship really such a great life? .
Or is a great life, the life of the bird? Fighting against the wind. Not knowing if it will make it. Risking to get exhausted and fail. Maybe even die. .
Choose wisely. But know, that if you never choose to be the bird, you miss out on life. .
Life is tough. Life is scary. Life is being vulnerable. .
I am vulnerable right now. Posting this painting and putting a price on it. I have no formal painting training. Or that much practice. I am the bird, vulnerable to be taken down by a strong gust of wind. .
But if you also choose to be the bird, we can fly against the wind together. When we are many, we can support each other when one fails. .
