Finished up a multi-sensory installation in Snowmass this week. Super fun project and the largest active wall yet. Pushing the envelope on my interactive body of work. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #workinprogress #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover #interiordesign #interactive #interactiveart #detour #mural #interiordesigner #cultivatorads #snowmassvilage #snowmassgamelounge

After having an amazing time painting in Snowmass with some other amazing artist I had to reevaluate some of the projects that I said yes to. Every artist can get caught up with saying yes to projects they should have said no to. It is always good to have a reminder about this Because you only want to allow projects that fit, and that you’re excited about, to enter your space. This is when you get your best work. Shout out to @parris.Hodges for reminding me of this. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover

Integrating yourself into a new community is hard but when you contribute to that community you are able to meet like-minded people. Shout out to “Just” @ju555t For helping out as much as he did during the festival. It really made a big dent. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover

This @thecrushwalls festival was amazing. @maxsansing and I tag teamed a wall together and put up friends and family. Max is a beast and definitely someone to start collecting👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾 #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover #blackgirlmagic #blackexcellence #essence #blackartists

Working on a new 3D piece for the next show. Here is the current progress. Had to use double sided tape to stick it to the wall so I can paint on it😆 So far so good. 🤘🏾 #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover #blackgirlmagic #blackexcellence

Working with a new wood lathing equipment I got. I’m working on some new skills rather than outsourcing this components of the upcoming exhibit. Turned out pretty good for my first time using it😆

This art tip Tuesday it’s about investing in yourself through getting studio space. The best studio spaces are all mostly word-of-mouth so definitely tap into your network to find them. Shared spaces are great when you start out and then you want to go to a solo space. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #artstudents #artistoninstagram #artoninstagram #artstudent #artschool #artinstitute #artcareer #arthelp

This art tip Tuesday is all about documenting your work because you will be using that documentation for an assortment of different reasons. Having good documentation makes your efforts in getting exposure smoother. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #artstudents #artistoninstagram #artoninstagram #artstudent #artschool #artinstitute #artcareer #arthelp

This art tip Tuesday is about masking curves. The thinner the table is the easier it is to mask these rounded edges in your work. 3m makes 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch tapes that work pretty great. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #artstudents #artistoninstagram #artoninstagram #artstudent #artschool #artinstitute #artcareer #arthelp #denverartist #denverstreetart #streetart #mural

Not every creation in your practice needs you to register a copyright or trademark. Copyrights and trademarks are only as good as your ability and willingness to protect them because it takes time money and effort. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #artstudents #artistoninstagram #artoninstagram #artstudent #artschool #artinstitute #artcareer #arthelp

Finally got them all painted and hung up to see how they interact with each other. Each one is a different character with different personality but they come together to create a band, called the 5-Pointers, my next show is based on. (Wex, Carl Remington , King Tempo, and Lola Divine). 😆🤘🏾🎼 Super excites for this show. #Art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artstudio #painting #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artnerd #artlover #artoninstagram

In the digital age it is important to understand that you need to actually make a human connection and just live online in you creative career. Sometimes just see someone face to face can open doors and opportunities
