"I Create To Process "
Tribe, how are you?
We are in the midst of an astronomical facing; a revolution! At the top of this year when I claimed 2020 as the year of “Metamorphosis” I had no idea what was in store. I couldn’t have imagined facing a pandemic, that would force us into solitude. However, social distancing positioned me to step further into my self, connecting deeper with my desires, healing from heartbreak, and reevaluating my priorities. The moment I began to grasp hold of the lessons from the universe, we were soon faced with the death of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd. Though the list was of our brothers and sisters continues, this was this straw that broke the camels back. It triggered unwavering solidarity...
Every so often I pinch myself and ask myself is this really happening? And it is happening, a lot is happening at once… there is a lot to take in.
As the daughter of a two Haitian immigrants my parents taught me valuable lessons on how to maneuver around racism and to press forward in-spite of the fact that because I was black I would be perceived differently. I never thought I would see the day where America would be called-out and held accountable for the normalized racism and injustice, but the day is here.
This brand is the expression of a black female artist and it will continue to tell and uplift the story of of black and brown communities with all odds stacked against them. I create to process, I create in hopes that my creations will create change, bring hope and love to those who can relate to my story and passions.
With that being said, over the next few months Tribes will be taking a journey with me as I navigate this time. The 1st outward expression during this journey are new T-shirts: “Sol·i·dar·i·ty “ & “Canceled” . The Tshirts are sketches and thoughts from my journal, They’re raw and the come from the heart. I’m dedicating a portion of the proceeds to be local NYC initiative and organizations.
Only 30 of each T-shirt design will be produced and hand tie dying them upon your request.
