Patience and diligence are the key to any progression. You must have patience in KeepCalm52knowing that your hard work will pay off, but most importantly you must be diligent in your actions. Aim and go for it! Reach for your goals; nothing should stop you. There may be detours along the way but you must re-route yourself to reach your destination.

Say for instance, you are going up for a promotion for the 3rd or 4th time and each occurrence you miss the opportunity. Perhaps you should try adjusting your approach: Continue reading




What does it mean to be honest? Fair? Open? Upfront? One thing that I adore about the arts is the open forum provided for self-expression. You can express yourself artistically through visualizations or even using words. There is a saying: if you cannot be honest with yourself then who else can you be honest with? No need to put on a façade: embrace who you truly are.

Sometimes we try and live life as one KeepCalm51thing or one way to fit in: go with the flow. Why? I am not saying to go rogue but literally why is there always a need to fit in? Normalcy is something deliberate and Life just happens. Be present. If there is something you do not like, then say it! If there is something that you agree with, then do it! Be upfront right then and there. If something does not sit well with you, then get up!

Don’t stay in a situation that compromises who you are as a person. Never do that; it will only lead to regret. Believe me, I know. It gets to a point that you start feeding yourself on false hopes and measures: “it will get better or it won’t always be this way.” While I believe that everything can go up, we sometimes need stronger discernment to know when it will not. Your gut or initial feelings may be incorrect, but the truth of the matter is that you went with yourself. There are consequences on both sides of this however and because of that you must consider those. It is not fair to only think of yourself, but never place yourself at 2nd place.

Take time and check in with yourself: if it calls for you to have a conversation with just you, do it! No, you are not “insane” for taking time to key in on your needs. I express this principle so much in this blog because it was that very notion that allowed me to even become a blogger. I calmed myself, looked around, and Continue reading

What People Are Saying About Keep Calm and Create On!

To shed some lightness in the midst of the adversity and tension going on around us, I am very pleased to announce that Keep Calm and Create On is still buzzing strong and reaching more people than ever before! So thank you so much for your continued support! It means the world to me! As I have shared before, I started this blog because I was a low point in life in which, creatively, I was blocked.

I felt no matter what I did or said was ever enough. Like my voice as a woman, my voice as an artist, and my voice in general did not matter. However I believe we all have something to say and should be heard.  I wrote Keep Calm and Create On: Words of Encouragement from One Artist to the Next because I wanted to provide an alternative to the negativity surrounding me: all the industry rejections, fallen friendships, etc. As cheesy as it may sound, it was a like a light bulb went off. I was done being down and out; spiritually I turned to a higher purpose and power and began to rebuild myself. The passages in this book are like mini self-improvement activities to assist an individual in personal and artistic development.

Here is what one person had to say about Keep Calm and Create On:

It’s Refreshing, Teachingis thegreatest actof optimism.Encouraging, and Motivating! To me, the purpose of this book is to encourage you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and become who you were destined to be. We all need that push and I feel like this book helps push my artistic side and not as an artist but as an individual.”

This is not about advertising but inspiring a generation of people who needs to find the inner strength to push forward and create on! Purchase and gift your copy today!

As an artist, it truly affects my creative spirit to see so many people being taken away from us. I am trying my best to stay calm and at peace through this storm.

Nevertheless, I am using my social media platform to promote and declare that whatever views you may hold, be sure those views are your own. Don’t be influenced—invest in knowing the facts for yourself.

Create a sense of peace and honor around those we still have and respect for those we have lost.

Be blessed, stay in good spirits, and create on.
