Milk and Night allowed me to show with them in SELECT ART Fair. Milk and Night shared a booth with Galeri Sensei. The artists that are showing explored the role of feminism in the art world.

A recent studio experience was the subject of this essay that I submitted to Girls Get Busy. Girls Get Busy is a feminist creative platform that supports artists, writers and musicians. It is curated by Beth Siveyer. I am grateful for this opportunity to share why I create this work, in an international platform, such as this magazine. Often times I think about the experiences I have had that I haven't written or spoken about publicly. This is one where, through sharing, I am hoping to connect...

It has been a few weeks since I decided on the theme of my show at the Lauderhill Arts Center. I have done a number of things in preparation for this show. I designed the title for the show so that the marketing material will have a consistent look and feel. I have created events on Google+ and Facebook and invited friends. I requested addresses and mailed physical invitations! Yes, good ol' USPS stamped invites with RSVP cards! I discovered that I have somewhat of a mailing list. As I began to...

As a resident artist at the Lauderhill Arts Center, I have the opportunity to curate exhibitions in the gallery space. My month is this March.

I was not aware that I have been creating the content for this show all along. It took a year and had various collaborators. I concept for the show in March came to...

I participated the one-night show at the Girl's Club in Fort Lauderdale. I had two prints, 24" x 18", of new work. My intention was to get public feedback on this new work. The yellow Post-Its that you see, are from artists. The purple ones are from judges.

This piece originated four years ago, in a Target store in Atlanta. I was in town for my friend's graduation. As we shopped in the store, we walked through the toy aisle. I saw the wands and wondered if anyone else saw what I saw. I saw a phallus. It made me think wonder, what kind of toys are we giving our children to play with? I wanted to be very blunt and I thought about attaching these wands to male silhouettes.

We have all heard the songs and seen the videos, but have we stopped to consider the consequnces of the strip club and how it effects our perception of others?

I was an an art event last week with a friend of mine. I was showing her my new work on my iPad when two artists approached us. They had glimsed the images and wanted to know more. The men asked a lot of questions about my work. The same questions I address in these videos. As I spoke about the work and showed them images, they wantedto know what sparked the work and what it was about. As I carried on through the Targets and got into the Strip Club Signs, one of the men began to undertsand the...
