Sunday, May 5, 2013
Hello bloggers!

I know I haven't been blogging much, however I am on other platforms (twitter, facebook, IG, etc). I started exposing my work to the public on an intimate level here on my blog and meet some amazing people during my journey. It's only appropriate that let supporters and those who inspire me know that I finally launched my formal website today. Please visit

"Objects In Mirrors Are Closer Than They Appear"

“You broke my heart 
 I was just one in a million 
 Who thinks the hey day was their day     
Tragically longing for the past 
 I think about you every day 
 While I loiter on your doorstep 
 To memories, I say, ‘I’ve had enough’, or ‘I tried’.”
-Meshell Ndegeocello

I Wanna Dance With Somebody-Favorite

Tuesday, February 14, 2012




Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
Ive done alright up till now
Its the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls the loneliness calls

Chorus:
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Ive been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Chorus:
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Somebody who somebody who
Somebody who loves me
Somebody who somebody who
To hold me in his arms oh
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls.

Chorus:
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody 
Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

Ohhhh,ohhhh
Come on baby, haha
Yea
Now get with this

Don't you wanna dance
with me baby?
Don't you wanna dance
with me boy?
Don't you wanna dance
with me baby?

With somebody who loves me.

Don't you wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don't you wanna dance?
Don't you wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don't you wanna dance?
Don't you wanna dance say you wanna dance?
Uh huh. With somebody who loves me.

Hairstyle-Locs

Saturday, January 21, 2012
It's been a while since I've posted updates of my locs. I wanted to treat myself today since it's my 2.5 years loc-versary and decided to get them professionally done and I came out looking like a million bucks!

Portrait-Badu

Friday, December 30, 2011
I feel like doing charcoal paintings forever now. I find it funny how I was in a rut for a while to the point where I thought I lost my passion. In fact I felt like I was going insane and lost my identity. Guess I was just bored with acrylics...I really feel so much better about myself now. It's an amazing feeling...

"Attitude"-portrait

Thursday, December 29, 2011
I started getting bored with acrylic paint so I decided to rekindle my relationship with my first love, charcoal. I haven't used charcoals in 3 years and I missed its versatility. I have a lot more to learn with charcoal thus I will be exploring with the messy black powder for awhile...
