Indigo Child

This drawing started on a long airport layover with the idea in mind that I would only use different shades of a color. I used only marker because I like the way it shows overlapping and creates an illusion of texture. As I was drawing I could feel the eyes of a little girl watching […]

Voodoo Child

This face started off on a long plane ride to Italy and was completed throughout my European journey. During this trip I tended to talk less and take in more, especially on long flights and train rides. I tried to capture this sensation by making the eye a mouth. After seeing Italy for merely a […]

Spirit Rider

Spirit Rider really embodies the sensation of freedom. I drew this while traveling in Europe. My spirit felt like I was galloping thru unfamiliar territory. I was enthused by the Art museums I had visited and seeing some of Picasso’s original work. The horse-like animal the woman is riding has strange eyes influence by some […]

Shakti

As I became more interested in spirituality, the chakras and kundalini energy my performances, belly dance classes and artwork began to reflect this. This piece is called Shakti, a Sanskrit word meaning sacred force or empowerment. In Hinduism it represents cosmic energy and dynamic forces that move through the entire universe. It’s personified as divine […]

I particularly like […]

Aspirations

After working on a very detailed piece for a boyfriend, I really felt the need to do something for myself, something that embodied my aspirations. Naturally that became the tile of the piece. Its symbolism is by no means hidden, its implication is spelled out in evocative words. These include Breath, Open heart, Mindfulness, Art, […]

Balance

This creation was inspired by my admiration for a new relationship I was embarking on. The man who grabbed a hold of my heart was a healer and practitioner of Chinese medicine. Throughout our bond I developed a deeper passion for Chinese philosophy and the significance of the yin yang symbol. Instead of starting this […]

The Cycle of Thought and Creation

Though at first glance this piece may look just bizarre to some, there is a lot of meaning behind it’s flow. It is one of the very few pieces that embodies a more masculine character in my art. His beard is the sun and the night is on his head. He has dread locks and […]
