💥 FOR SALE 💥 1/1 Hand Painted Vinyl Record 45 • 7" • Signed on the back side. No reproductions. An original hand crafted work of art. Spray Paint, Oil, & Acrylic on Vinyl. Inspired by many elements, my Kituwa / Cherokee roots, my Mattaponi roots, other tribes I won't mention that flow through my bloodline & other tribes I respect & am inspired by for many reasons. These are also inspired by my love for nature, my love for feathers & flowers. I used to be a landscape designer & landscaper & creating these reminds me of my love for both flowers & design in general, not just landscape design. These are inspired by my psychedelic experiences in the past & particularly peyote visuals & folk art from the Southwest US & parts of Mexico. I am inspired by inlay jewelry often found from that region & the patterns often used. Mandalas also inspired these. I enjoy painting & drawing & designing, so these are manifestation of those elements combined. I have over 200 original works like these finished & in need of a new home. I need to clear out my studio & prepare to relocate. I have been in isolation most days for the past 7 months creating & working on my inner self & overall health. This has done me much good in all areas except for finances. I have been basically dead broke most of the past year. My father is still battling cancer & is also unfortunately in a very hostile & dangerous living situation that I am doing my best to relieve & save him from. It has brought much stress & depression & terror into the lives of my entire family. Your support will not only buy you this piece of art, but also help me & my family who desperately need the money for survival. I need to arrange a new setting for him & our entire family is currently dead broke. He is on disability. I have created enough art to change these circumstances given I sell each piece at a price point that is both fair & in line with previous sales in the past. Once I accomplish this, I want to pay off some bills & do some much needed traveling. Send a message if interested in purchasing. Grateful for those who support me & my creativity, it means the world to me, truly. Much Love Y'all! 🙏💖🎨👊💯
Heavy as a rock
Lost and unaware
Lost and aware
Falsely found and grandiose
Truly found and surrendered
The all seeing eyes
Mesmerized by beauty
The beauty of this world
The beauty within
The beauty within us all
The beauty of new beginnings
The beauty of second chances
The beauty we can accomplish
When we are not afraid to be seen
Not afraid to show our true colours
Not afraid to be proud
Proud of ourselves
Proud of each other
Proud as a peacock
Light as a feather

Fierce /firs/ -adjective- showing a heartfelt and powerful intensity. :
When I asked my husband, who knows me better than anyone in the whole wide world, to describe me in one word, this is what he came up with. :
For years I struggled with others perceiving me as too direct, intense, shrewd. I sensed that some people were scared of me, or at least felt very uncomfortable in my presence. I tried to soften my edges, make small talk about nothing, smile, hug and sweeten myself. :
Now I know that fierce is my je ne sais quoi. It’s my strength, my passion, my drive for growing and improving, my desire to achieve and share with others what has helped me transform my life. I am relentless when it comes to making my dreams become my reality. I am a multi-faceted and brilliant human being, just like YOU are. I can be fierce and warm and fuzzy at the same time. I can embody strong yang qualities like intense drive and focus and feminine yin qualities like playfulness, deep caring and compassion. :
Ultimately, it is me being 100% ME. It is about me celebrating my strength and passion while evolving and stepping up in the areas I want to upgrade and improve. :
Be yourself, not what others want you to be, or what you think you “should” be. Celebrate your strengths and all of your quirks. Be unapologetic about your true essence. When you do that, you show your Creator how grateful you are for your life. You are a Masterpiece! When you acknowledge and cherish your gifts, you step into the flow of life, you co-create with the Universe, you create your chosen future. :
Thank you 📷 @leticialondon for capturing my essence so perfectly ❤️
💗My journey of self love and acceptance.
My name is Serena and I have been on a journey for the past few years. A pilgrimage of sorts, with many paths all leading me back to a very sacred place indeed, home within myself. ~
For many, many years I was moving through this life completely disconnected from myself. Disconnected from my body, my emotions and my worth. I held beliefs & wounds of worthlessness, abandonment, unlovable, undeserving, fat, too sensitive & not being enough. ~
I projected and attracted these beliefs and wounds throughout my daily life and relationships, most significantly the relationship I have with myself. ~
It has been a process & journey of diving deep within myself to feel, release, accept, acknowledge, love upon & heal myself from the inside out. I have learnt so much about myself along the way and continue to discover even more facets of myself as I continue along my journey of self exploration. ~
The most potent and powerful lessons for me have been..
~ AWARENESS- through objectively and honestly observing oneself and the way in which we engage in life brings about awareness. From this awareness we are able to transform, heal and transcend.
~ THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY- I was raised in a household where I was labelled ‘the sensitive one’ due to my gift of being able to feel everything. This coupled with a family who did not express their emotions openly & viewed emotions as a sign of weakness, instilled in me the suppression of all emotion. It was from this practice, as well as some childhood trauma experiences, I learnt to disconnect from myself by disconnecting from my feelings. ~
I have gone through deep healing and reconnection to myself through many experiences. I have learnt the power of allowing myself to fully express my emotions, allowing myself to feel all of my feelings & the potency of reconnecting with my inner child.
~ FULL SELF ACCEPTANCE ~ EMBRACING MY LIGHT & MY SHADOW. This is a massive part of self love. Learning to love, accept and embrace myself in wholeness. My light - being my joy, my passion, my happiness, my higher expressions of self as well as my shadow those parts of myself that 👇🏻cont...

To all of my winter babies (1 of 2)....to those struggling with depression this season or loneliness, isolation...I have a story for you. About a week ago I was catapulted into a whirlwind of anxiety due to many factors, sitting in a dark cloud that I felt was impossible to overcome. It was truly painful, crippling, and I thought I had moved past my anxiety...which gave me more anxiety!
The trick, I learned, is both self-care and acceptance. Acceptance of your present challenges - knowing they are lessons - “classroom moments” as we are forever the students. I didn’t know what type of self-care was needed, so I wrote down a list: self-care is breathing; self-care is drinking water; self-care is dancing; self-care is crying; self-care is meditation, self-care is writing; self-care is eating; etc etc. I slowly but surely got to a place where I was able to honestly comprehend my anxiety and I wrote “Self-care is understanding that I am fearful of ___, __, and ___, but I know that I can overcome it - I know that I can have a few minutes or hours of crying and that this anxiety is coming from ___ (this experience/circumstance/my environment, whatever it is).” This is how I honor my emotions, and these are the tools I use to get clear...to push through...to carry on....
