My cover art on Sargasso and my lovely pouchies!!

Hello everyone!! I have news news!! Today I received in the mail the Sargasso book and my work published  on the cover yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! 
I been waiting for it and it's finally here! It took them a while but it is here at last.
For those who are not quite sure what the book is about I will talk about it with you.
Sargasso is a book a peer reviewed journal of literature and culture edited at the University of Puerto Rico.
It publishes critical essays, interviews, book reviews, and some other creative works. Sargasso particularly welcomes material written by/ about the people of the Caribbean region and it's multiple diaspora.
I thank Dan E. Walicek Managing Editor and the Editorial board for including me in  this wonderful book.
In this issue it talks about poetry, Juxtaposition, essays and reviews.

Now that I have shared with you such wonderful excited news. I have more to share with you.
I finished my art pouchies scroll down and take a peek. Absolutely lovely and more to come!

enjoy!
Have a lovely weekend!!





My beautiful art pouchies!!
On Etsy!


I made this pouch for me. I decided I wanted to go in another creative direction by using words of wisdom poetry. This pouch is done on canvas ink with a bamboo calligraphy and used Vinyl plastic over it and zipper.

This one here I decided to keep for me!! I love the colors, different from what I'm doing right now. I used decorative fabric and cut out hearts stitched to my pouch.
