What?! No way! I’m the Featured Artist? 

When I first learned that Raine Magazine, the wonderful publication that it is, was going to spotlight my artwork, I was like, “What?! No way! I’m the featured artist?”

Silver and Gold: The Spirit of Nature (or something). 

Yesterday, I bought paint for the first time in 15 years – silver and gold watercolors to be exact. As a matter of fact, all of the other paints I’ve used to date are vintage Russian from the 90s. It’s amazing that they work and blend just fine with the brand new colors. Here’s me fooling around and testing the waters.

The Great Depression of Frida Kahlo

I first learned about Frida Kahlo when my junior high school art teacher assigned her to me for a report. True, I learned to see surrealism and minimalism in a completely new light. But it was her personal story that resonated with me the most. 

Frida Kahlo had one of the most interesting yet horribly sad lives I’ve ever learned about. Yet she remained a strong and independent soul that battled through every obstacle that stood on her way – and there were lots. 

In honor of her passing on July 13th, 1954, I wanted to give you a glimpse of her amazing story
