I’ve gotten a lot of positive responses to my graphic design and pop art work, so I’m expanding my web presence! I created a new website, I’m not buying the domain yet since I’m just starting out in graphics but if i progress i will. I’m going to use it to keep this website all about fashion and photography, and the new one will be only for my art and quirky side. I’ll paste a link below and a short video of my new store!
So I’ve been in the west Caribbean for the past week relaxing and taking some photos. I figured I’d share a few of the shots I took! We went to Puerto Rico, St Thomas, St Maarten, Martinique, Barbados, and Grenada. Grenada was by far my favorite since it was so lush and it had beautiful architecture as well. The trip started out kinda rough due to the nor’easter, but by the second day its was lovely!
I know that this website is more so a forum for my photography, but I am an artist of all forms. Recently I have been working on graphic design and painting while trying to work on a unique aesthetic in that realm. I have been playing with happy designs that are very lighthearted. Today I worked on a drawing of taiyaki (a popular Japanese dessert). Here is what I have so far!
Recently I've been experimenting with more graphic design work and creating mixed-media projects. I currently have three designs for sale which can be crafted into various items. It's been a great way to practice a new skill, but it has also helped me to relax after classes and work! I'll include the pieces I've made below. I have a feeling that currently mixed-media is my most successful since I have been painting for so long. However, I hope that I will be able to continue to grow in digital art creation. Expect to see them for sale in my store by the end of the week!

Today was the first rainy day we’ve had in Charlotte in about a month. The sky was grey, and a thick fog engulfed the city. Today I finally had a day off so I went to Amelie’s French Bakery for a cappuccino and a maple walnut macaroon. Honestly, I absolutely love gloomy days so this was a breath of fresh air for me!
After shooting with Nisveta we went out to grab a bite to eat at Merchant and Trade in uptown Charlotte. I had the richest mac and cheese I’ve ever (and of course it was incredible), and we both got a flute of prosecco. This restaurant is first class, and the view from the outdoor area is unlike any other in the city! Fahrenheit is also known for their skyline views, but Mercant and Trade around sunset is pristine.
Today I shot with the lovely Megan Rose for her blog! She took a couple shots of me while we were overlooking uptown. It was super windy, but the views were fantastic. I most definitely will be selling prints of the skyline that I took! But in the mean time, here's some photographs of myself that Megan snapped this afternoon!
Finally we are back in New England for a white Christmas. I'm so excited to see all my friends and family while back home! It's been snowing a decent bit, and I really hope there is more to come!
These past couple of weeks have been so crazy! But, I've had the best time through the chaos. Megan Rose, my incredible blogger buddy, wanted to go to the same hot air balloon festival as me! So we collaborated and had a great day of fast food and floating festivities. Of course the food was overpriced, and the parking was craziness, but it was all worth it to see these gorgeous balloons take flight. Such a great day!
p.s. for Megan
I owe you some chicken nuggets!
