Soyo Nails, Yonkers NY

July 12th, 2019 | Category: Clients,Community,Fashion

Who doesn’t love nails these days?! Nail art has become a new creative market for many women entrepreneurs. It’s amazing to see how much art can fit on a small canvas like nails. It’s pretty! I especially love women who venture off to set-off this new business model and take it to the next level. Especially women who love fashion, design, and art. They can now hook up their spaces with fresh decor to welcome women for a spa-art kind of day experience. Top it off with a location featuring women street artists from NY, and bang! you got a dope new thang happening. Right? Right? I dig it. It’s happening up in Yonkers ya’ll, and it’s called Soyo Nails run by the lovely Jenna. A beautiful new client, and space. This summer I had the opportunity to rock a colorful installation that is a little bit more abstract, and completely different from what I do. Exploring structures to paint on. Having fun with it, staying active on these mean streetz check it out. Shout out to Daniella who assisted me on the project in 2018, and now 2019. Go #teamtoofly!

Terrapin NYC, Lincoln Center 2019

March 25th, 2019 | Category: Clients,Events,Travel

It’s a wrap! A new, and wonderful experience to add to my adventures as a traveling artist. This March, I joined the Terrapin team from Australia for a live art performance. My duty was to create over a 100 drawings for “You and Me, and the Space Between” at it’s US premiere at Lincoln Center. A story that touches on issues of migration, immigration, and environmental changes happening in the world. Local artists Christina D. Eskridge ( Narrator) and Toofly ( Digital Artist ) spent three weeks on the production with the team and had a great time.

The island is sinking. Its adults are useless. Time for the kids to save the day!

When the island of Proud Circle springs a leak, it takes the curious mind of a child to save the island, its people, and their ways. From Australia’s most accomplished children’s playwright, Finegan Kruckemeyer, comes this original tale of wonder and invention, brought to life with storytelling, choreographed projections, and live-drawn animation.

SOYO NAILS INSTALLATION

October 25th, 2017 | Category: Art & Design,Clients

Made a quick stop this fall to work on a wall installation in Yonkers, NY for Soyo Nails. I got a chance to use the water based MTN Colors SprayPaint on a gig at last! I tried it out at the Grafiteras exhibit and now I had the opportunity to work more with it. I like it. It’s great spray paint for indoor use because of it’s low odor. It did spread into the air like other spray paint materials so we had to make sure to keep areas like the floor and tables covered with plastic. I liked that I was able to work with acrylic and blend into it. Covering large areas in half the time helps so much with aerosol especially with a watercolor theme direction. The soft palette allowed me to blend the soft color tones and tie in the nail salon brand colors. I am used to dark, black, hard graphic line work but as I move forward with my client work it gives me the opportunity to try new styles and effects. Shout out to my assistant on the gig Daniella Harris who helped out on the logo and many of the production set-up. Having assistance is the bomb! There are so many details involved that you just can’t do alone. Having a team is important and every year we get tighter and tighter. I am also able to mentor D, and motivate her as she pursues a career in the arts which helps me continue my Project Girlz work. Thank you Jenna for reaching out to me online to work on your salon walls. Walls look beautiful! Grand opening soon —>  Follow @soyonails on IG.
