Standing Out In A Monochromatic World

"

Time. The elusive idea.

Identity. Whom am I amongst the Vanity of Society? The strength it takes to enter my costume to the criticism of the streets.

Self…. When society asks me to blend in, how do I rebel? " - LM

While posting my stories from THE BIG SHOW Featuring mixed-media artist Andie DeRoux and myself, I get the overwhelming joy to relive the moments of beauty while in the middle of creation. This day was perfect in harmony. The images bring back such joy, for who we all are in our world. This series gives hope. Thank you Ms. Andie, and thank you Ms. Bridget.

"YOUTH"

 

"Now lay before her a choice. Inside her, a deep fire burns uncontrollable. Her body heads’ to none, energy abound. She fights with her will, determined and brave she takes the leap. Her youthful softness buffering the corners of life smooth as water to rocks. Her power beckoning new adventure and hope.  There is ease in her grace. The bright horizon un-daunting. Her instincts are raw, she wanders …. Just as the lily pads float without apology, as does the beauty of her youth. And all of her, inside it.

Let us encourage her journey in this stage. As it is more beautiful than our wisdom, and as fleeting as the sunsets. To soon we learn the scars of life without understanding. This is her time to become her own." -LM

Melissa has a wonderful, youthful energy, that gave us a reminder to smile. 

Working on "YOUTH" with Melissa was one of the serene moments in this project. Everything felt as beautiful as we had dreamed and she was the perfect canvas to express this concept.
