First and for most I would like to thank all the people of this amazing organization the I have been working with, RAW: natural born artists, and the amazing Glaminar sister who kindly invited me to be her sidekick for a night, the lovely miss Sarrahh Blank.
What is RAW? It is an independent arts organization that hand selects and spotlights independent creatives in the visual arts, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, models, photography and performing art so that they might be seen, heard and loved.*
RAW’s mission is to provide up-and-coming artists of all creative realms, when others might not, with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. RAW educates, connects and exposes emerging artists in 17 artistic communities nationwide.*
Can you say amazing!! Yeah I think so!
So, after being a sidekick, which I will gladly do again and again with Sarrahh, and after a last minute booking to be lead makeup artist for a second RAW showcase (thanks again to Sarrahh for this) I am now officially a part of RAW and will soon be a featured artist on their website.
I have been booked for both a third and forth showcase with RAW in the next few weeks. I am beyond excited about this. It seems like what I have had a passion for for so long is finally starting to bloom. I knew the seed of creativity was planted in me long ago but seeing it bloom into reality is truly amazing. And just as Oprah always quoted Glinda the Good Witch of Oz, I will too: “You always had the power”
