Last night was the Willie Nelson concert in Key West! We had such gorgeous night to have Willie on stage on the island. I was so grateful and happy to be there to offer my henna tattoos and hair wraps to Willie’s fans:) I felt so inspired to be a vendor and be a part of the energy of an American music legend! Seriously , 86yr old Willie Nelson rockin out on stage still! Amazing energy! Heres a few pics from the night in Key West!

I inspire . I do what I want . I do what I love. I do what makes me feel good …. this is alignment . When your in alignment amazing things happen. It’s a law of attraction.
I get calls or emails from time to time from people expressing gratitude and appreciation for sharing my story and my gift. It’s really touching that I reach people this way.I received a call , well actually 2 , just recently from women expressing gratitude for what I’ve done and created in my life. Sometimes these calls come along with questions of advice on how they should proceed….. Thats one area I don’t visit,simply because I operate on vibes, energy and intuition more so than business do’s and dont’s . My advice is- do what’s best for YOU.
My art, it’s my gift. My “business” is centered around this gift. My belief is that ANYTHING is possible. Seems crazy to some, but perfectly logical to me:) I began and continue to thrive using a method of what feels good to me and what feels inspiring to guide me. Theres nothing traditional about what I do or how I run it…. that works for me. The reason this a effective for me is because I’m focused but I work when I’m feeling good and in the flow. The Universe LOVES when we feel good and vibes are high. As a result, we receive more of that good stuff.So,doing what you love is paramount… you’ll feel good, when you feel good, you get good- total win win all the way around!!!
I love what I do. It’s fun going to “work”. I relax knowing I have an amazing gift I share with people that love and appreciate what I have to offer. I am abundant in all positive ways regarding my art. Its fun being creative and connecting with people from all over the world. Thank you:)

I’m here in Medellin, Colombia for my first time ever and am so inspired by all of the amazing, beautiful art in this phenomenal city!! As a professional face and body art artist, I especially appreciate the tattoo art and tattoo shops all over Medellin. Aside from that, Medellin is very inspiring to an artist…the color, the energy, the flowers, the music, the fashion…. the list goes on. Theres so much everywhere I go that appeals to my creative side. The use of bold color here is inspiring and right up my artistic alley as I LOVE colors of the electric kind.
Just stepping outdoors in Medellin brings an abundance of gorgeous flowers and burts of green color with foliage everywhere. The city is situated in the mountains so its kind of like city life in the jungle in a way. One moment I’m walking alongside a stream of water in the trees and flowers, the next I’m in a metro city with tall buildings, its really fascinating to me.
The street art is incredible as there are a variety of canvases that art is displayed on, walls, garage doors, flower pots, building, rock, etc. The possibilities and creativity really get my ideas flowing:) The one thing I failed to pack was art materials mostly due to luggage restrictions with the airlines and my attempts to travel as minimally as possible yet feel comfortable during my time in Medellin. The atmosphere here is calm and peaceful but festive, perfect for creativity.

So here I am again sharing about my time spent in Cuba. Its been such a learning experience for me and deepens my gratitude for the simple luxuries in life which we can easily take for granted in the United States. I also feel that what I’ve experienced after losing everything I had in the Florida Keys during Hurricane Irma is somewhat connected and equally profound… appreciate everything.
Cuba,as I’ve mentioned before… is sort of like entering a time capsule in a sense….. life there is simple and certainly less evolved than United States mainstream living. Its most definitely a mindset and lifestyle adjustment and very grounding. I went more prepared the past times I visited as opposed to the first trip. I knew how limited particular resources are so I brought things that were important for me to have during my time there,books to read, protein snacks, specific personal hygiene items, etc. Theres no Wal-Mart, or CVS, etc if you forget something , so make sure you have it or quite possibly go without. Whats there is there, and its not much. It offers an opportunity to realize that you can get by on less. Those necessities we think we need, maybe they are not so necessary after all. I,personally,although a minimalist, do have level of comfort of living preferences,but recognize that I can let go of my attachment to them and still be happy.
When I travel to Cuba, I go to Cienfuegos, specifically Castillo de Jagua,Cuba.It’s beautiful….. yet basic… very basic. It would be described by US standards as poverty, maybe it is,I prefer not to label it. I know that when I wake up there in loving arms,it really doesn’t matter. When I hear the chickens outside at 6am I feel a sense of comfort and peace. Its the simple things that I can find appreciation for and stay in that heart centered space. Its not about things, its more about energy… the music, the smiling faces, the generosity,thats what is most special to me about Cuba.
I see Cuba as a place that offers the idea of simplicity to me.Although, I should add, in that simplicity nothing about Cuba is easy,starting with getting there. To get there from Key West which is only 90 miles from Cuba…. we must fly from Miami,about a 3hr ride from Key West …go figure. After flying from Miami to Santa Clara, its about a 2.5 hour car ride to Cienfuegos. The car ride is always a fun experience with me and my love in the front with the driver and the family that is there waiting to greet us piled in the back seat.Its squishy and close but I love it. Its all about family in Cuba, which is a shift from life in the US. Something I am learning to adjust to and embrace as I’m used to a more independent lifestyle.
I’ve heard about people that have visited and found the scarcity of everyday comforts in Cuba to be problematic. If you go there expecting the everyday luxuries we take for granted in the U.S., your in for a big shock. I love learning about different cultures and truly it has helped me understand and connect the pieces from the experiences I’ve had through opportunities with my face painting and body art in the Philadelphia area and South Florida. We sometimes think of others differences as less than because perhaps we don’t understand another’s reality. I’ve visited and done face painting and body art events in areas what would be labeled depressed areas in Philadelphia but came away having some extremely beautiful connections because of it. I can say the same about Cuba, I could be turned off at the lack of my normal everyday comforts, its not for everybody, but my own heart centered personal reasons keep me going . Through this I learn to appreciate it and be more grateful for every blessing in my own life. In the U.S.,I can go to a grocery store and select that I want to eat based on what I’m in the mood for, that is not happening in Cuba. Perhaps in touristy areas but I have not visited such places yet. I do recognize that much of our food supply in US grocery stores is a “product” rather than a natural source of nourishment, so theres a commercialism piece lacking in Cuba which I find fulfilling in many ways. On another note,I can go to a store and buy clothes I love and feel good in the U.S., not happening in Cuba either. This tech world we live in in the US… mucho limited in Cuba. As in, if I want to connect I must find a WiFi friendly area and pray to connect…. probably slowly. Imagine a world free from materialism and capitalism? No billboards, strip malls, chain stores, restuarants , etc… thats real life in Cuba, I personally think its wonderful as things or outside resources like that never bring true fulfillment anyway.
In closing, for me Cuba has brought me to a deeper state of acceptance, compassion, love and patience . Its definitely helped shift my perspective on many topics and of course bring me to a deeper appreciation for this life and the blessings in it. I feel grateful and appreciative while I’m there for the simplicity of life, happiness just because and focus on everyday tasks. Life is what it is, go with the flow and be happy.
