52 week diary is a really great challenge for me to take on this year
I am sharing most of it on my Flickr gallery and the images will be up for sale on etsy
Above are some sample of what I am working on.
I will be blogging more and writing less … I thinking that is what has stopped me before! I just want visuals .
On that note
Here are the images from my Costa Rica trip that help me to get back into my own skin so to speak.. I found my voice again!

I been slacking on the Blogging but i am trying to re-organize my time .Since i been focused on setting up my new Online store on Etsy.I am doing a bit of fine art photography these past few month as i continuously renew my vision for my work. The exhibition I did last summer really got my blood pumping. Fashion is always going to be a part of my life but it’s no longer the complete and sole focus in my creative minds eye. I am actually still using the influences on my fashion background to what i am shooting now. I think the direction i am taking will in turn have a great affect on my fashion images as well.
Also trying to manage my new obsession with Blythe Dolls.. I have always been drawn to Japanese culture quite a bit throughout my life and visually their artwork is like Eye Candy. A trip there is definitely on the goal list! More of that to come.
Here is work i shot in Brooklyn, NYC at the amazing coney island.
PRINT AVAILABLE ON ETSY:
Retro Revisited Exhibition at Arta Gallery: June26th- July1st 2011
As of Late last year i have been exhibiting with Six Ah Wi Art Collective.
My series is called ” Kouture Kickz”
This conceptual idea is focused on the customization of Sneakers and taking it to the extreme first stage is a customized design based on the Alexander McQueen Collections but extending it to a sculptural direction, then second stage is photographing it and extending it into a digital collage to create the fantasy that McQueen had. This allows the viewer to see some of the influences a shoe creator/collector experiences and how it can get translated into a personalized shoe.
Above is a behind-the-scenes video that show my inspiration and individual pieces from Alexander McQueen’s Collection.In some way this video and this body of work is tribute to McQueen’s life and works that has challenged + strengthen my creativity .
