About

I am a 26-year-old African American female seeking for a way into the Fine Art world. Currently I am working as a weekend manager at the American Swedish Historical Museum and I love it. But during the week, my rent job, is as a clinical evaluator for family court. I know, two extremes of the spectrum. I studied Crime, Law, and Justice with a minor in Art History, with the assumption that I would enter law school. I wanted what all inner city black college students wanted… to save the world, narf! lol But that has not changed, just shifted a bit, so I can better service the community and work in a field I love. I studied music over ten years, however, became jilted due to being homeless in my senior year of high school. Suddenly the adult mind of money, food, a placed to stay, came into play, that made me question about my passion for art and music, as well as the direction I was headed. So I thought, I would play it safe and study law. I want to become a lawyer because of money and the power to change the world. To make sure what happened to me, would not happened to others. But these are idealistic dreams of a Girl. But as I grew older, I realized that being a lawyer (at this stage in my life), wasn’t for me and that I want to inspire the world to change through art. This is a mission to enter a world that is still predominately for the privileged and not mentioned as a valuable career choice in the African American Community. I am writing a blog to explore the notion of art and the behind the scenes. Also to chart my entrance into this, somewhat, exclusive world and provide hope for other artistic black girls..
