I want to thank everyone who is a part of The Love Necklace Community. There is a woman who is healing from domestic abuse who is wearing the Love Necklace that was gifted to her through the purchase of a Love Necklace. I wish you could have been there when she received it so you could have seen how grateful she was... how much she smiled.

Why San Pedro?

I started writing ‘Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist’ after I lost my dream job to paint a 140 foot mural on the side of a prominent hotel, after to a sexual harassment scandal broke me down to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. I wrote a novel to navigate through the pain.

This is Where We Live

I’m writing openly and vulnerably about the realities of life on a small Caribbean island, and my journey as I use three mediums (watercolor, writing, and jewelry design) to build a social impact brand that supports women’s health, safety, and dignity, and how I am learning to use mindfulness and spirituality to guide me through the deepest struggles and most trying times.

The Art of Gifting

I know that the messages that I put out on social media may often seem unrelated... sometimes I post about my paintings, other times, it's my book, a new jewelry design, or the LOVE Necklace Campaign. In this short story, I tell the story about how relevant each medium I work in is to the overall story about a journey toward light, in the wake of trauma...

Relax your Mind


I approached the crude structure and pulled aside a piece of madras fabric that had been fashioned into an entrance.  Incense smoke twisted and curled through the air in a thick haze.  As my eyes adjusted to the dimly lit, smoke filled room, they fixated upon a Nefertiti-esque woman.

Coconuts Falling on a Hot Tin Roof

I arrived in San Pedro town on Tuesday evening, after a long day of travel. My love was waiting for me at the water taxi station, ready to take me to a private house on a secluded beach front property on the north side of the island.  He planned to help a friend with some work on the property while giving me some quiet time to work on my art.

This is a Journey

Yesterday morning, I sat in front of my laptop and dutifully tried to write a weekly 'Love-spiration' email and... I had no idea what to write about.  My intention is always to write from a genuine and thoughtful place, but I was blocked.

She's the One...

Last week, I had the opportunity to present my work at the Vignette Art Fair as a vocationist.  I presented my novel, 'Sketches from the Heart of a Texas Artist' and my LOVE Necklace Campaign, and spoke about how the two projects fuse together to fulfill the mission of Mpulse Studio: to use wearable and visual art and literature to evoke purpose, love, and confidence, while connecting with community programs to support women's health, safety, and dignity.

I want to be Iron like a Lion

Often, my art illustrates the landscape of Texas, the Gulf, and the Caribbean, but when an amazing client asked me to illustrate a collective of African images, I fell in love with the process.  I found an inherent strength in studying and rendering images from a continent built upon ages of vibrant culture and wisdom.

The Art of Surrender

The concept of surrender doesn’t come as innately as my urge to control, so I guess it makes sense that I’ve been at a loss for words. In fact, it’s such a foreign concept to me that the Universe has continued to send me an army of angels to guide me toward living through surrender.
