ARTIST & MAKEUP ARTIST
WHAT IS A MANTRA YOU LIVE BY?
"I don’t really have a mantra! But, I do have a feeling that I live by and that is to do what you want to do in life. To do what brings you joy, passion and utter bliss and don’t settle for less."
HOW DID YOU CREATIVE JOURNEY BEGIN?
"I was always a creative child. Expressing myself came naturally to me. I use to draw every single day in class as a kid. I even went so far as to draw my teachers as couples? Lmfao, I don’t know what was going through my mind but it was something that was instilled in me from such a young age. If I didn’t paint or draw, it was immersing myself in creating day dreams. If it wasn’t that, it was learning how to do makeup and fashion. It’s apart of me. Something I feel like I was born with."
WHAT MAKES THE PERFECT WORK DAY?
"The perfect day is when I complete every single task I have for the day. I feel so accomplished and powerful and then I can finish off with a nice blunt and my favorite kdrama, chinese drama or anime for the day. I may even watch Spongebob and get some laughs in!"
WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING ABOUT BEING A CREATIVE?
"The pressure of running a business by myself. Sometimes, it does get overwhelming. You beat yourself up cause you’re not as fast as amazon when it comes to shipping orders. You may have to repeat yourself multiple times to multiple customers. You get burnout, you make some bad decisions, get some rude and impatient customers. But, learning how to deal with these is something I have been blessed to learn over the past couple of years. The pressure is still there, but I don’t let it consume me."
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
"I’m currently working on a new collection I want to drop very soon concerning one of the stars in our galaxy. I also plan to create a book, but that’s gonna be a secret for now."
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
"Manga, anime, fashion, makeup, tarot, witchcraft, the supernatural, and spirituality. Also, the fact I have big things I am manifesting for myself. So many things give me inspiration to push forward."
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING A CREATIVE?
"That I have the freedom to do what I want. That no one can tell me how to run myself. That’s something that is so important to me. Also, that I can help people and fill their spaces with some bright, ethereal artwork."
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU COULD GIVE?
"My advice is to just start and to keep going towards whatever you want your life to be about. A lot of people ask, how was I able to get so far? It was because I kept going. You are going to fail, scream, cry, want to give up, complain, compare yourself to those who are already thriving and fail again. But, each time and each level you’re gonna learn something that’s gonna put you miles ahead. You’re gonna get that one good opportunity and you will have the guts to take that shit. That opportunity is there because you did not give up. You kept striving and going. Not only that, but you’ll be able to pass on your knowledge to baby creatives who want to get that first step too. You realize all the pain was worth it. You’ll look back and say, “Wow, I’m all the way up here? It use to seem so far.”
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE IN 5 YEARS?
"I am living in my dream house, married to the love of my life, surrounded by my loved ones. I am still a beautiful artist & healer creating generational wealth for years to come. I am living the best possible life for myself and I am beyond grateful and happy."
