Art is Inspiration

Art has the power to change the world. Art helps us express ourselves freely. Allows us to creatively share our perspectives and has the power to build bridges culturally. A blank canvas is an opportunity to communicate with colors, words and layers of meaning. LJ…Artlife is about celebrating the vibrance and energy of the urban environment.

As an artist, I am well aware of the power of art. I use my work to inspire people from all walks of life. I want my work to be a speak to various cultures and to inspire generations. I want the viewer to appreciate where they come from and to embrace the beauty around them, but also to get lost in their own imagination. I use vibrant colors, textures and WORDS to inspire the viewer of my work. Layers of words like DREAM, INSPIRE, SHINE, LOVE, LIVE, CREATE, BEAUTY, PEACE, WISDOM throughout my work to effect emotions in the viewer.

Growing up in the Bronx, NY, I had no idea that I could actually be an artist as a profession. It was never an option in my mind. But when I was 14, my mother showed me a documentary called “I’ll Make Me A World” based on the art of the Harlem Renaissance. It was life changing. I had never seen artists that looked like me. It made it seem real. It planted the seed in me. Now I hear this same thing all the time when I work with students of all ages. It never feels like a possibility to them but when they see me, it becomes attainable. That is always so satisfying to me.
