louisiana holiday transit. i finally am getting to spend a little more time in my grassroots of a city, Shreveport. this is where i started trying to become involved in the arts scene. i started selling my art originals in night clubs and other social outings. that all began near the end of 2013. my friend introduced me to the concept you can make money from being good at your artwork. that’s been something i’ve made become my only source of income for four years. i have learn a lot about myself and my value.
2018 is going to bring a lot of new things into my life, career, thinking patterns.
i’m looking to teach my friends and anyone who’s interested in learning some of what guided me to success. my colleague @jwes115 was consulting me and we combined our forces to begin an agency in late 2015. i’m looking to see how we evolve this year,
i want to impact the arts community in a new way that empowers the artist and creates new opportunity for success.
nothing is really too impossible or far out our reach.
let your thoughts become your reality.
the beautiful part of exploring the land of New Orleans is that so many come for arts, many come for culture, and everyone comes for a story.
what’s been happening lately is that i begin taking time asking what others find in art and what pulls them in and documenting why connection leads to purchasing.
this is Cory,
Cory was special. he made it so that our paths would cross again, he wanted to claim an original piece from me. it doesn’t happen too often i let go an original.
meet Yvonne, another philanthropist and Corys girlfriend.
together they spoiled me Monday- we shared coffee and beignets at City Park, ”twas a very marvelous meeting
we discussed our appreciation for art and the phenomenon of why we collect it. Yvonne said the joy of being able to sit back and admire the work as a time capsule is one of her reasons to collect art.
this is something that’s REALLY awesome! i’m officially on the line up for the 2 year celebration of FOR SHOW! For Show is an art show & market pop up at Eiffel Society, the showcase itself brings out some of the finest painters/illustrators/crafts makers/ in New Orleans under one roof.
this is a pop up market that people find some of their new favorites at, so hopefully someone spots me in the crowd.
there will be so many talented people here!
this is going to be such a fun night, if you’re reading this i hope you come out and make it! a lot of my work will be on display and for sell. my latest illustrations will be available and on display.
The location is 2040 St. Charles Ave.
