So back on blogging....

I've recently decided to quit my full time daytime job since having my babygirl who is now almost 6 months old, because my boss wouldn't agree with me working from home. In efforts to save money on daycare, we decided it was best I just stay home with the baby since we wouldn't be able to save $ if I was still working where I was working and having to also pay for daycare expenses. Just not worth it. It didn't make sense to work full time and give most of my paycheck to daycare. Anyways, since then, it has been a really good decision for our family, now we're able to at least save a lil more than when I was working, because I cut off gas expenses to el segundo from long beach back n forth, 5 days a week, and lunch time expenses. Also this gives me quality time with my babygirl before she grows fast and starts going to school.

Also by quitting, this gives me some time to re-evaluate what I want to do after my daughter starts going to school. I honestly do not want to work full time for a company when I feel I give my hardwork, time and energy without the compensation of good pay. Then I feel cheated and as if I'm taken advantaged of. Lately, a few companies I've worked for majority of the time makes me feel this way. I would like to establish a job where I work remotely from home or build my own business from home selling things I make.

It's definitely been hard to find the time to work on art but as I try to establish a good routine with my daughter, I'm trying to carve out some time everyday to at least work on something in regards to my art. In due time, I'll find some rhythm again.

Also I'm planning to regularly try to blog each week about my life as an artist and also full time mommying.

Living In Long Beach now.....

The new studio space in our 2 bedroom long beach apt. Been loving our space. It's peaceful, yet very lively at the same time. But not overwhelmingly draining.

So a lot has happened.....recently some sad things, but also very good things.

I won't go into it on here but yes it was difficult to go through.

Anyways, I've been still thinking about how to finish this painting, but I take my sweet time. I like to marinate on my ideas sometimes especially with these huge paintings. It really forces me to think slowly on what ideas I put down visually onto the canvas.

 Some ceramic works I worked on during the past months:

The Beginnings of a new chapter

It is almost coming to the end of an era in Koreatown.

My husband and I are moving to Long Beach nearby my younger sister and her husband. 

I've been taking this nighttime ceramic workshop at the Barnsdall Art park, Los Feliz. Working on a few ceramic sculptures to incorporate into my sept critique coming up in a few months along with my paintings, photography, zines, etc. It has been therapeutic for me. I really want to invest in a kiln someday soon for our home.

I've started up a new blog project in regards to focusing on interviewing or posting anything about artists that happen to be women. It's called "Art in Women's Eyes"

It is a platform to showcase the many women who make Art as well.

2016 the start of a battle

Been in Los Angeles for 2 years now, and still don't feel like I really know it well.

Still feels a bit new to some extent. 

I've been so heated by the recent presidential candidates, and also the rising inequality of our society in regards to racism, and the rise of no middle class in America. America needs a miracle, we need to fix our country and rise above the negativity that comes along with the new presidential candidates.

I would really like Bernie to win. 

In rise of feminism on my mind lately:
here's a sketch:

there's more on the way

Painful times........

My mother had passed away on April 23, 2014.

It all happened so fast, so sudden, the doctors and specialists weren't able to save her weak heart.

I am devastated.

I'm trying to ease my pain through art. 

It'll take time and the pain may never go away.

I'm going to miss you so much.

The Beginning of a New Page


It is very busy in Los Angeles.

Listening to "Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles" by Francoise Hardy and Life Aquatic Studio Sessions Album by Seu Jorge.

At my job, I am completely immersed in the darkroom photography world.

I feel I am on the right path here in Los Angeles.

Working slowly on new works.......

                                   Taking my time with my pieces. Working more deeply into each piece.

              It's an interesting moment in time, to process, to grow my skills.

To live in this state of making meaningful pieces that are dear to me, not worried about society or selling.

I am making art for deep purposes. It's a spiritual practice to build on.

Next page............
