This week I’ve been working on a pet portrait of Roxie!

The year 2015 had lessons to learn – and 2016 is about getting back on track.
I’m looking forward to the future with open eyes and an open heart . I’ve moved into a new home, with new resolutions, ready to take on anything! Every day is another opportunity to push yourself – to become a better you.
The past month I’ve had some time to make more sketches… and started a book club with 3 girlfriends. All from the Valley, we love to read and started the club off with Brooklyn by Colm Toibin. I just finished I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou and thought it’d be cool to draw just her eyes because she was a woman with so much soul..
I drew Steve Harvey after his hilarious fail on National television. His face is too good not to draw!
Amy Winehouse sketch
Malala is still a work in progress….
This sketch is part of a series I’m creating…
I’ll keep posting new work since one of my resolutions is to keep this blog updated with new work, artists who inspire me, trips I take, and Beauty/Fashion ideas I can’t help but share. Thanks for checking out my blog and come back tomorrow for Makeup Monday!

The year of PAU.
Yesterday I was thinking about what my mom said, that ” People start off selling their products right out of their car” — it didn’t occur to me right away that this actually would be a good idea for myself, but I tried it Downtown in the Arts District – and it was a success! People were totally into it, sold some shirts, and even met some other cool artists. My kind of Day Job!
Love finding my stickers still going strong all over the city.
This past week we had a product photo shoot for for my online store!
Thanks to my homie Ronaldo for helping and Aurelie Davis for the photos!
I put together some photos I’ve found that have a sense of what inspires me for my show , Apocalyptic Paradise
Well these past couple months have been VERY busy. First, I got sicker than I’ve ever been in my life. The doctor thought I had Mono. Who gets Mono? Then I moved out of my old apartment into my own art studio in Echo Park! I’m totally loving it and it’s been crazy moving and organizing and trying to feel at home in a place that feels like anything BUT home. I’m in a totally new city, new surroundings, new neighbors, new everything. New has never felt so good. I feel inspired to read more, paint more, and get in touch with myself and where I’m heading in life. I’ve never lived alone so I had to take some time away from the computer to create my little routine everyday. I’ve never had a routine in my entire life so this is very different for me. I’m growing up, accepting who I am, and looking forward to the future. I’m ready to make some awesome work and get back into my blog, sharing my little life and the process of creating my first art show! I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m hoping to just figure it out.
I’ve been putting my new place together slowly ..

My last weekend in Chile was one of the best trips ever. Longtime friends from High School took me to a place called Los Molles – about 45 minutes North of my favorite beach Maitencillo. We got a house right at the beach with an ocean view for a fraction what you’d pay in California. No wifi, no TV – Just friends, alcohol, food, and music. Nothing to do but hang out with each other, talk , dance, and cook. We shut off the world and enjoyed being in a beautiful place with good people…something everyone should do once in awhile!
An idea for a painting…
