Inspired by your idea of the human metamorphosis, I explored the physical appearance of women, specifically black women! Going natural is a process that not only takes a great deal of patience, but it also challenges one’s self confidence, will power, dedication. I feel that black women who decide to take the journey of transitioning possess high self esteem, accomplish more, and seem to be more in tune with who they really are! As a man I admire I truly admire all those traits in a women.

The concept for this new series, SHE, quietly and convincingly parallels the healing journey I have undertaken in the last year. And as I began to search for my own truths in this life, I contemplated curiously how the journey might look from other creative being’s eyes. For an artist, vulnerability and transparency can give birth to a creative work or destroy it. And though I feel I have found my creative voice, I want to bring recognition to other great artists and provide a platform of inspiration for all creatives out there in the universe! I hope SHE brings some inspiration to your journey, whether it’s about healing, gain self confidence in your giftings and abilities or simple motivation in knowing there is still parts of your story being written out.
SHE is a celebration of women, at all different stages of life. Finding purpose. Loving. Living life. Accepting ourselves. Finding joy. Evolving consistently. Just Being.
Who is SHE?
A force to be Reckoned with
Gracious and Humble
the Heart of the Universe

Today’s inspired fashionArt piece is the cover of a W magazine. A perfect picture except her mouth. Misaligned, askew, out of place. Reminds me of how life can be, how we can feel sometimes in the world. But I’m also reminded that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing… it’s a representation of shattering perceptions of trying to live a perfect life. And in that trying, you can miss out on just living. Take down the walls of perfection today and just live!
Considered the greatest literary work of his career, F. Scott Fitzgerald, painted a beautiful illusionary tale of forbidden love, lost and found. The 2013 movie adaption, directed by Baz Luhrman, explored themes of excess, abundant passions and over the top glamour that seemed to define the Roaring Twenties. Art Deco reached its height of popularity during the mid to late 1920s and the art movement was defined by vibrant color patterns, plush and excessive ornaments and bold geometric shapes.
Valentino, Chanel and Dior are a few remaining fashion houses that produce haute couture (high fashion made-to-measure) garments.
Here’s to fashioning a new look, planning a dinner party or simply taking in some glamour for the day!
Art is subjective. Often what moves one person, may confound another. Fashion, or the love of fashion, is no different. When the two are combined, what is produced is a beautiful mix of fantasy and reality, the past and future, cosmos and chaos. That magical juxtaposition of opposing ends of the spectrum is what makes fashionART so intriguing. And inspiring. When we are inspired, we become unstoppable creative forces. When we create from our core, from the place where we are the truest form of ourselves, we don’t wish for creativity to visit us, we live in creativity. So here’s to the start of living in a perpetual creative space and to brightening up an otherwise ordinary Monday!
“Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.” Ernest Hemingway
