There’s a moment when you talk about someone in “is” present tense…and realize it has changed to the past tense “was.” Infinite Sorrow. David Bowie to me is/was a genius. I might be a “Millennial /Generation Y,” or whatever you want to call it… But I do not over use the word Genius. Let alone the word Artist. My heart broke in shock to a sea of tears for almost 24 hours… All I could talk about was David Bowie. I’m still in shock by this news.
 My first memories of David Bowie were as the Goblin King Jareth in Jim Henson’s film Labyrinth. And his new wave pop album “Let’s Dance.” Inspired. He is/was a new form of art. He looked different and I love it. I wanted to sing like him and dress like him. He is/was magical. In short, people like David Bowie should never die. With that being said his visionary work in music, film, fashion and more will never die. It’s just hard to realize that he’s not going to tour or create anything anymore in this life time. That excitement of what’s next…is gone… Black Star was a parting gift. The show is over. The curtain is closed.
I could write more about how much David Bowie meant to me… but I’m still to fragile to continue writing of him in a the past tense.
“I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.” -David Bowie
“I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I thought, "Fuck that. I want to be a superhuman.”
-David Bowie

“I'm not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I'm living on.” -David Bowie

“I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.”
-David Bowie

I love you David Bowie. Thank You.
XO

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016
featuring Pantone 2016 color of the year

13-1520 TCX (Rose Quartz) - 14-3919-TCX (Serenity)

When Pantone announce Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue as the colors to represent the year 2016. I took a deep breathe...Balance. The 2015 color of the year Marsala was warm bloody wine color which intuitively was a great color choice of foreshadowing an emotionally, push for change, violent, inhumane, bias...year. As this new year come ahold I hope we learn and evolve to find inner peace and overall be more humane to each other.
As a artist, I've always been more sensitive to environment and aware of energies. Color places a big importance not only my work but to my personal energy. For my new year shoot I felt going to the beach and meditating at one of the most colorful and "you be you" places on earth Venice Beach. Venice Beach was the prefect place to reflect on the year and breathe in the hope for a positive new year and breathe out the lower energies.

As I look through my clothes I realized I own a lot of pale pink and blue... it made me smile styling seperates. In 2015 I did not blog as much. I was not inspired too...I was drained. 
I'm excited for capturing my 2016 adventures.
 Cheers to a new positive change.
BALANCE :)

P.S.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID BOWIE

//SHOWS// THE ONE AND ONLY GRACE JONES AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL

(photos taken by me)

I missed Paris fashion week for Grace Jones... and I'm not mad about it. The performance beyond amazing. I've bare witness to her grace once before back in the summer of 2009 at the infamous Hollywood Bowl as well. 
Pair with an excellent opener as the synth pop band,"Future Islands." It's was a night of magic and manifestations as the rare super blood moon spotlight the night...
Grace Jones perform in head to toe body paint in an homage to her late friend and collaborator artist Keith HaringThey collaborated in music videos as well as the 1986 film Vamp. She had several costume changes throughout the show and each one was dramatic yet... well curated to fit the white to red body paint tribal style design. Keith Haring's work has always had movement and tribal influence... I mean New York is a concert jungle...and New York was the place to be for pop street art in the 80's and early 90's. 
She sang all the classics though she missed "Demolition Man," but she treated us with a couple of new songs from her up a coming album "Shenanigans"... and the new tracks are fun and will be instant jams in my book. And she HULA HOOP while singing... I've seen videos of her hula hooping while singing but WOW. Seeing it live was Epic. I'm really looking forward to her new album and to reading her new memoirs book... it will definitely be on my birthday and/or christmas list. "Ill Never Write My Memoirs" book will hit store September 29th 2015.

Once again Grace Jones...I LOVE YOU !!!
XO
