So nice to see you all out at Shukai today in SJ !
at Binh Minh Quan
this is a true #tbt ! 
back to 2004 to be exact!! (yes that was ten years ago O_O) 
Although it doesn’t look like much..this drawing means a lot to me. Not only because it’s supposed to be me as a mermaid 🙈  (anyone who knows me knows I LOVE mermaids..) But because of where I was and the state of mind I was in. When I was younger I was surrounded by drug abuse and drama. I was exposed to unfortunate conditions I had no control over and It may sound silly but I learned to strengthen myself through art.  

Art has always allowed me to escape reality. To focus on creating something myself and looking forward to something beautiful. My work isn’t perfect and they aren’t masterpieces but each has had a story behind them, ones i am in control of. ✨😊
tbt with #superstreet for my cover feature last year 😜
I love how @dunksrnice captured this shot of some of us walking down to the sand at the #MKEXPLORE meet last Saturday! 😊👍
