I love art, creativity and expressing myself! As a little girl I drew pictures of people and gave them names addresses, likes dislikes, family. . .life! I daydreamed playing the piano as Beethoven and created stories for my little sister at night. The moment I had enough money to buy clothes they became a way to express myself. Although I am no avant garde dresser, I enjoy fashion and dressing nice as a way to express who I am. I adore all types of art and love immersing myself in ideas of artist!
So as I created that masterpiece of a club sign, I sighed, I should of explored Art and social justice as a mix. . .those are my true passions! I know with all the papers I struggle with, deadlines that dizzy me, I am happiest creating myself inf orms to share with others.
Below is the answer to a quiz I took on Right Brained Left Brained. . .of course I am predominately Right brian but interestingly enough, I personally enjoy the order of math (I was never good at it, or tried to be) and I love the mystery and discovery of science (same as math)! I think the real question is how do people take a life time and indulge in everything that is dear to them?
After my results are some links to some wonderful artist I love!!
Jessica Care Moore, A African American Poet who has a song with Nas
Miguel Luciano, A Puerto Rican American Visual and Installation Artist
His work has a lot of Social commentary and just amazing! You can learn a lot about Puerto Rican history and the Diaspora through his art
Erykah Badu: One of my favorite singers! She has an amazing voice and a lot of unique things to say. Please listen to her new album, her mind is crazy!
Lat but not least Thelonious Monk!
I love this guy! He's like a jazz ODB, once a black listed musician and not hailed a great until way too late
