Yesterday this uncle came into my exhibition and told me a few things. He told me my art work does nothing for black people and that the only place my work belongs is in children books and that they are cartoon people who eventually kids will grow old and forget about. He told me that all my painting do is teach little girls how to do hair and cosmetics and all he see’s is weave and indians making money. He told me I can do nothing else and that I’m a pretty girl and that I should remove all the metal out of my face because it can give me cancer. He also told me he was the founder of black history month. LOL Peckham I do love you. Even though he was insulting me I took a few positives. I would love to do children’s books and cartoons so I guess it’s a start.
Messing about in Peckham after our exhibition lol.
When you don’t get given opportunities create your own. Curated my first group show last night and i’m currently feeling a little emotional after watching it do so well underneath my eyes. Thank you somewhereto_ for giving me a chance to make it happen and thank you to all 14 artist who I had exhibit their work. I know so many talented people and it gives me so much joy to give them a chance to shine. Nothing but the best of the best. Thank you.
Curated my first show. Shout out to the haters man lol. When you don’t get given opportunities create your own.

There are many things I would like to do in this life time, one of which is being an illustrator for children’s books. I grew up admiring a book called Amazing Grace wishing it could be real. It inspired my illustration style. 24 years old and I would have never imagined it would have been such a big deal to my creativity. I want kids to be inspired by my work in the way Amazing Grace inspired me, if not bigger and better. The best feeling is knowing you’ve given someone so innocent a reason to blossom.
Take away the internet and all the trendy clothes… Now put yourself in a room with 5 strangers. Would your character be any different?
