Those of us who have had the pleasure of knowing Artist Frank Frazier personally over the years of being Artists ourselves are privileged to witness the evolution of his genius whether we realize it or not. As one of his countless mentees and adopted granddaughters [he calls my name about 50 times per hour -_-] I cherish him more than words can properly express. On the outside, he’s a Vietnam veteran, domineering bus...

Ok, so real talk. The first time I met Tracy Ann I was a little confused. As a virtual assistant, most of the time I’m contacted by clients who need help with organization, scheduling, and the like. Tracy Ann showed up to our first meeting with an entire binder of processes she had already come up with for her business and the most colorful calendar I’ve ever seen. She meticulously planned out her social media postin...

March Kicks off Youth Arts Month. #ArtBeyondtheBar is a message that Hope Murals is committed to not just during March but all year around. Hope Murals was created to provide an artistic platform to engage under-served youth considered to be "At-risk" with an opportunity to discover and learn the power of SELF-EFFICACY, by conceptualizing, planning, preparing and completing a mural. Often youth are encouraged to esta...

So I'm taking a moment to write about the lovely Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week on the run! During a totally booked weekend photography-wise I got invited to a mixer downtown Ft. Lauderdale by my good friend Korri Nikkole, I figured welp it's a Wednesday what's the harm. Plus the host was called Housewives In The City so who can resist THAT name?! Little did I know I was about to stumble upon a diamond mine of opportun...

The Vision Project’s contents include photos of my original artworks, hand drawn black and white templates of those original art works, mandalas for added meditation, and art therapy activities.

     As a black creative entrepreneur in South Florida, I am overwhelmed with joy to have attended the Art Of Black Miami event last night at the gorgeous Bright Line station in Overtown. Now I almost went off on a tangent about how amazing the venue itself is with it’s vibrant color schemes, geometric design, and state of the art ambience, but I want to stay focused on the real superstar. Without advocates...

Don't you just love a good street runway show! The relaxed style in the French Riviera proved to be effortless resort wear perfection. It's obviously a vacation destination where good fashion sense is appreciated.

As my family & I strolled the breathtaking streets in the marina town of Cannes, we were awestruck at the similarities to the Caribbean. One of our home away from homes is the eastern Caribbean island of St. Maarten where my Step-Father spent his formative years. Being a former Dutch & French owned island, the evidence of colonization lies in the design layouts of the streets, the stylish charm of the buildings & the...

Happy June fellow Mavens!!! Well I must say May was so eventful that it seems to have flown right past me without stopping to say good morning and how are you today, would you like a cup of coffee?? But in actuality, I had so many wonderful experiences during the month of May that I wanted to do a quick recap of it all. 

It all started out with conversations of mental health issues due to Charlemagne The God's phenome...

As Wedding Season dawns upon me and Innovative Arts Photography kicks it's gears into hi-speed, I still love to be engaging with the fashion community keeping an ear to the ground whenever possible and I'm soooooo glad I caught wind of Fashion Takeout! The Black Owned fashion boutique boasts of high fashion that will "break necks not your pockets" so you know I had to pop in and see for myself. Co-owners Bettyna Theo...

Hey Glitterdolls!

So let's TALK! This is such a "MUST-HAVE" conversation. Everyone wants their Beyonce moment, and I am sooo delighted when you come to me to fulfill that request. But truth be told, "the moment" costs! As it should! I have discovered that many do not understand the cost differences and breakdown between shopping at the mall and custom designs. Some, have never had anything custom made before, and othe...
