Girl with Veil, 2019

11 x 8.5 in
Medium: Resin over Alcohol Ink, Acrylic, On Canvas
Price: $120.00

There are so many challenges a human being can face and still stand strong. Girl is reminiscent of the mosaic of people I met growing up in a big city. I render her in a patterned veil, scarf, like ones that flooded New York City kiosks and markets where I grew up.
She is unveiled, and though stands behind sheers, vulnerable, she is poised, resisting to disappear from the vast space.
I chose shimmering gold and purple alcohol ink that that lace the dark acrylic background. The piece is preserved under non-yellowing resin.

Connections #2

Size (h w d): 24 x 24 x 1.5 in
Medium: Acrylic and On Canvas, mulberry lace paper
Price: $580.00

Our ability to keep and build strong connections with people and community today is challenged with COVID.
Painting in my process I started with markings, intuitively as a freeing unmasked action. As I progressed, I adapted to the form the painting took me choosing to ride it the strong reds later toned down with cooler layers of blue. I tie this to the feeling that resiliency requires adaptability.
The figures I also think about how people come into your life for a season, they impact you. Tiny squares moving around are like the migration to Puerto Rico my family did growing up which taught me many lessons of resilience and new ways to connect with people. Squares repeat in textured lace paper.

Black Rose Theory

Medium: Architecture
Price: $150


Some grow legs, and prosper all over the world. Letting others see what can come from what is perceived to be a wasteland, a life not certain to make it past 21.   

Some stay-put and serve as a tangible beacon in the environment from which one came. Shining bright and helping others push through the toughest of circumstances. 

The black rose, represents black life.   Appreciate the beauty.
