Pour some sass in your cup with this 15oz ceramic coffee mug, featuring the original artwork of Melissa Avalon. A vibrant Monstera leaf and the pun-tastic text "I'm a Monstera Without My Coffee" because, let's face it, we all have a little monster in us before that first sip of coffee righ
I'm feeling dinomite 🦕!! This triceratops dinosaur is one of my favorite designs to do at birthday parties because I have a little more time to add all the fun details.
🦊 Foxy vibes 🎨 Decided to go wild with this fox design and added some spring flowers for the season! It's fun to experiment with different designs and express my creativity. What do you think of my foxy face 😉?

Art is not a talent you are born with, it's a skill you can build with practice. 🎨👩🎨👨🎨
It's easy to feel intimidated by art when we see amazing works created by talented artists. But the truth is, anyone can learn how to create beautiful and meaningful art with practice and dedication. Art is a skill that takes time and effort to develop, just like any other skill.
Whether you're interested in drawing, painting, sculpture, or any other form of art, the key to success is to keep practicing. Don't be discouraged by early failures or imperfect pieces – every artist starts somewhere, and the more you practice, the better you'll become.
So if you're feeling inspired to create something new, remember to make good art, you have to make bad art and keep practicing until you get the desired outcome. Start small, practice, and watch your skills grow! 🌟 👩🎨🖌️🎨

Moon child, forever chasing the magic of the night sky 🌙✨ I'm in love with this new painting of a boho-style moon adorned with delicate pink flowers and lush monstera leaves. It's the perfect embodiment of my love for nature and the whimsical spirit of bohemian style. There's something so captivating about the contrast between the soft, feminine colors and the bold, tropical leaves. I hope this painting can inspire you to embrace your inner moon child and seek beauty in the unexpected. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! 🎨💕
Lost in a dreamy world of moonlit skies and vibrant poppy flowers 🌙🌸 My latest gouache painting is a tribute to the beauty of nature and the enchanting power of the night. There's something magical about the contrast between the cool tones of the moon and the warm hues of the poppies.

Growth is a conscious choice. You have to choose to face the uncomfortable truth and take action to change mindsets, through patterns, and emotional responses.
Lately, I have been dissatisfied with the way I manage anger. I hold onto things for far too long. I decided I don't want to live like that so I'm working on letting things go instead of gripping them so tightly. Are you growing? What sort of things are you working on right now?
Art has the power to heal and bring peace to the mind. When life gets tough, I turn to my canvas as a healthy coping skill. The process of creating something beautiful helps me process my emotions and bring balance to my life. I encourage everyone to find their own creative outlet, whether it's drawing, painting, or writing. It's amazing how much healing can come from the simple act of expressing yourself through art.
Lost in thought and found in creativity. Art is a journey of self-discovery where I can escape reality and express myself freely.
She shines so bright, a fire in the night,
Made of stars and galaxies, fierce and alight.
With strength and power untold,
Her skin is woven of stardust and gold.
As she moves through space, a celestial dance,
Her fiery aura, a beautiful chance.
Her curves twist and spin,
Illuminating the darkness within.
She's made of constellations and endless skies,
Her wisdom and grace, forever a surprise.
She stands on her own without apologies,
This fierce woman, of stars and galaxies!

Makeup is such a versatile medium, you can...
✔️ Make a bride feel glamorous on her wedding day
✔️ Chisel features with contouring
✔️ Build up someone's confidence
✔️ Accentuate eye colors with complimentary tones
✔️ Highlight natural beauty
✔️ Create creatures with prosthetics
And so much more!
What sort of look are you going for?
I am an artist. Sometimes my medium of choice is paint, sometimes it's paper AND sometimes it's makeup. I've even been known to dabble with sculpture here and there.
I don't think I could ever be satisfied with a single creative outlet. I love the varied and diverse opportunities each medium allows me to explore.
What artistic mediums are you drawn to?
Halloween is coming! 1st practice look this year. Can't wait to help my customer with her family's spooky photos this weekend!!
It might have been almost a year ago, but since I just got these photos recently 😂😂 here's a beautiful shot of my makeup in action for the gorgeous 's wedding!
She's beautiful with AND without makeup! Swipe for the before pic 😉
Hey everyone, I have finally gotten it together and created a listing on google. If you have ever worked with me and wanted to help me boost my business I would love to get an honest review on my new google page.
If you don't know, reviews are at the heart of what drive businesses to show up in google search results. The more good reviews I have the more people will find me AND the more art I get to make!
TIA for your support!

Covid 19 has put a damper on face and body painting for who knows how long. In the meantime I've started making cute kitchen magnets. :)
