Did you realize we are still here, you thought we are useless…

The beauty cannot be defined.  It’s time for a new prospective.

Inspired by beautiful sustainable artwork of Susan Benarcik in Green Space in SoHo, I created a story of ‘Struggling Elements’, portraying the trial of our natural envionment we are witnessing.

We are often discouraged by ‘how little’ we each can do but that same little effort by each artists at Green Spaces ignited my creativity!  These guiding lights are around us always, as long as we choose to see them… well, we can even be one by doing our little thing here and there.

Happy Holidays!!

Yours truely and Kayla Jo collaborated this time with a model and actress, Evangeline Reilly, a native of San Francisco transported to our own, fabulous Brooklyn.

Kayla and I knew we could do something out of ordinary with her, knowing her strong acting background… well, what’s better than letting her spill out her emotions all over 3rd Ward studio!!  Accompanied by Kayla’s super creative interpretation of each emotions, we finished up our shoot after 5 hrs, more than excited… and here’s what we created.

So what do you think?  Isn’t she so full of them?

All Wrapped Around

December 16, 2009

Sustainable clothing designer, Raina Blyer of Ryann launched her 2nd line, Creem this Fall.  Her launch event at R Bar in LES for this organic active wear line featured NYC performers, like caporaira dancers, contortionist, house dancer and pole dancer to show off just how ‘active’ you can be in her super comfy and feel-good fabric of choice and design.

I mean, you can bend, kick and fly without anything falling out of these super mini bra-top and shorts?  I bet not many of us are doing much more in our active wear than this awesome pole dancer, agreed?

Summer HarvestCurlyEnlightened ChardKale ForestGiraffe in Greenpoint

Strangely adorable giraffe at the Greenpoint Rooftop Farm. I hope that crane isn't building some high-rise condos to cast huge shadow on the farm...

Days of hot, burning Sun have long been gone, now that we are in the beginning of November…  I was remembering the days I made it to the Greenpoint Rooftop Farm as I think of my up-coming holiday feast; purple kale forest, enchanted chard, sweet curly squashes.  I wish I could be there more often, sorting out arugula and picking hairloom tomatoes but for now, I must wait till the next farming season.

For those of you who can’t wait till next Spring, here’s their website to virtually appreciate the goodness of wholesome food.

fallen angels

October 12, 2009

Fallen angel Fallen in a sense that they are here among us, not that they are not deserve to be where they were.  We have to cherish them; they are here to show us how clear and possible we can be…  I think they are much closer to our infinately possible source than most of us, so called ‘grown people’.
