The Traveling Lense

Opening Reception for The Traveling Lense at macheteMACHETEI’m happy & proud to announce that my first solo photography show: “The Traveling Lens” at macheteMACHETE Artist Studio was a HUGE success last night! I had a great turnout…wonderful & positive responses to my work…and the best part of the night is that I sold 13 prints…which exceeded all of my expectations for my first show!

Check out the following  for a little glimpse:

I would like to express a HUGE thank you to all of you (family, friends, co-workers & strangers) that came out and supported me and my show last night! It really means the world to me and it wouldn’t have been a success without you!

To my buyers…I can’t thank you enough for appreciating and investing in my work! You have inspired me to take my photography to another level! I hope you enjoy my pieces on your walls for all time!

To my Mom…thanks for always being my biggest cheerleader…I love you!

To my Auntie Yvette…thank you for making the effort to come to the show despite the stairs…Uncle Chris you are a godsend for making it possible! I love you guys!

To Mike Nissman…thanks for the photography advise always and for documenting my show with the big guns :-) Can’t wait to see the photos and videos!

Thank you Alisha for all of your support throughout the whole process of organizing this show, and also for documenting it with my camera for me last night :-)

To my family/friends abroad…thank you for the amazing support you’ve shown me as well! Still trying to catch up on all the responses, but just know that I appreciate you being there with me in spirit last night!!!

And last, but not least…I’m infinitely grateful to Thomas Shelly, owner of macheteMACHETE Artist Studio for giving me the opportunity to do this show! I’d dreamed of doing this forever, and it could not have been possible without you! Thank you for motivating me…believing in my work…and for being soo patient with my busy schedule…:-) You rock! So happy to be working with you!
