New York within me

NEW YORK WITHIN ME is my new collection that I started when I moved to New York City in 2013. This collection is the continuation of my previous collection EMANCIPATION 2012 which tackled my body image issues. The works exhibited here are my favorite things about New York City and my experiences through the city especially salsa dancing in Madison Square Garden, the fulfillment that I got from living in the City, why I wish NYC was a person so I can hug it, why I love New York City & why New York City loves me back! But of course with a dash of humor and erotica… as I always say we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously …We only live once right?’
