I’m originally from Cuba,but  was raised in Los Angeles and now I live in Chandler, AZ.  I’m a single mom of two young adults,and a self-taught Mixed Media Artist with a love of vibrant colors,  gardening and thrifted home decor.  I share these three loves with you in my blog and You Tube channel.

As a 6 year survivor of Stage III Ovarian Cancer, art was part of my healing and is now a full-time career and passion.  My mission is to encourage and inspire young girls and women to seek their dreams, never give up and to trust the journey.  I’m a true believer and example that it’s never too late to find your true passion.

During my cancer treatment I was given a little stray dog that needed a home and a good grooming.  For 6 years now my Rosie girl has been by my side with unconditional love and emotional support dog.

Recently I’ve started container gardening and have developed a true love for succulents.  I often do blog posts and videos with tutorials and plant information.
