Be inspired, but add your own soul print to the universe. Artists pour their hearts out and sell their souls to their art. For me, teaching my techniques was a way for me to share the “feelings” I feel when I paint. That was my intention. I wanted everyone to paint and get this same “release”. I never intended it to go this far. I never intended my curiosity to take me to these places in search for more. Researching and investing in different mediums. Practicing day in and day out. You don’t see all the mishaps. You see the pieces that “make the cut”. So I wanted to show you one that wouldn’t normally make it. But it’s a past time doodle per se. I was channeling @janelovesdesign and her quirky designs I love so much! I usually have an alcohol ink piece I’m working on that I dabble in between projects and here’s a look at my current wip. Do you have an artist your currently channeling on a project? Give them a tag here 🔥🔥! #nezlifestudios #nezlife #steallikeanartist #abstractartist #alcoholink #ink #jacquard #fluidart #fluid #resin #resinart #acrylicpouring #abstractartist #acrylicpainting #colorful #colorpop #veteranartist #artistsoninstagram #virginiabeach #virginiabeachart #vibecreativedistrict #roanokeart #artinroanoke #roanokeartist

Where’s your dream vacation? I have so many yet to accomplish lol! I want to travel all over the world! That’s actually why I joined the Navy, to travel lol!! Yeah I did some traveling alright. I’m not going to lie, I was really excited when they told me I could save lives as a corpsman for the Navy. I started working at the recruiter’s office downtown at Times Square at @mepsnewyork in 1994. I did the dep program for a while before I went to boot camp. I thought saving lives sounded really cool at the time. Now to put things in perspective, I wasn’t even aware there was a conflict going on 🤦🏽‍♀️. I saw my brother and sister traveling in the Navy and I’m all in🙋🏽‍♀️! And there you have it folks! January 23rd, she was off to boot camp. Book coming soon. Where’s your dream vacation? #nezlife

‘Pura Vida’ 6x6 Alcohol Ink on Yupo Paper. A small snapshot of my memory of Nosara. We were in a magical jungle atop a mountain overlooking the ocean. And the last few days, just when I needed the sunshine the most, it finally came out. Like a beacon of hope. I know I haven’t been completely transparent about what happened in Costa Rica and I never will. Those were intimate moments shared by incredible women who were all in a very safe place and I respect that. Although my experience was different, it was still incredible and I’m very grateful for everything that happened. I got over my fear (or uncomfortableness) of using these beautiful inks. And got to try @brea_reese , which I absolutely love! And stepped out of my comfort zone. I ventured out and met complete strangers that weren’t veterans (huge leap for me)! This was the first retreat I had done this. And I learned a lot about myself. I NEED structure. I’m like a toddler lol. The military instilled that in me! I crumble at going on a whim yet thrive at tasks and schedules. If there’s no calendar you can cancel Christmas lol. But nonetheless, there’s a lesson in everything you do. The lesson lies in how to observe the instance. I’m choosing to observe these instances as so many beautiful opportunities which have inspired me to make ‘Pura Vida’. A term I heard frequently in Costa Rica. It translates as PURE LIFE! How fitting. For this experience has made me appreciate the life I have and the people I surround myself with. The women I met and the stories they shared. It was PURE JOY, PURE HEALING, PURE LIFE... PURA VIDA.
