Thank you Fanta
HEY!!!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE UR ART!!!!
"My mother passed away recently in February of 2014. The state of my own self-awareness and confidence before my mother’s death was in uninterrupted flux. After she died, those changes pushed me to seek stability. I have to be responsible for nurturing and taking care of my whole self. I have to be responsible for asking for help when I am in need. My mother was always cognitive of the fact that I had a strong interest in the arts, and thankfully she did bless my decision to be an artist, but her support came through my display of perseverance. She wasn’t the biggest advocate in me pursuing visual art professionally. She feared that I would struggle more than my counterparts pursuing careers in medicine or law. But essentially everybody struggles in an infinite number of ways. To me, being an artist means being your own superhero." - Ify
I am feeling incredibly speechless and overwhelmed right now.
My artwork is featured on http://www.yagazieemezi.com/. Thank you Yagazie! You have a courageous spirit.
Thank you Ijeoma! http://theijeoma.tumblr.com/ You have such a beautiful gift, and I’m so glad that we’ve connected.
There are so many things, good and bad, that have happened to me this year. Despite the things that have brought me stress, sadness, and uncertainty, I do feel more whole and balanced because of all the blessings God and the universe have sent my way.
Today makes six months since my mother’s burial. Mom, I love you so much for loving me always!
pausing my writing/editing to admire the raw talent of ifyxpressions. Glory!
Oh my goodness Ijeoma! You keep making me speechless :)
God is good!
Your "Immigrants. First Generation." broke my heart. Because I live in a country where most of the construction/labour workers are from South Asia, just like me, and it kills me to see how poorly they're treated here.
