I was given the awesome chance to prop style an interactive “Crown Walk” set in honor of @BET’s Black Girls Rock 2018 award show. The theme was Black Royalty.
The idea was to create a fun, colorful, whimsical playground for a sample children's lookbook. During the process it was important to highlight that little girls are capable of doing anything they set their minds to. Here is Little Miss Nadia as the Gardener, the Artist, the Designer, and the Scientist.

As part of their monthly Artist In Residence program, I was invited by W Union Square Hotel in New York to team up with Nars makeup in support of their "What She Said" initiative. This initiative promotes and celebrates strong, innovative women.
The theme here was endless beauty. I created a vintage boudoir that lived in the window of the lobby of the hotel, as well as three dimensional "exploding" flat lays full of "flying" Nars makeup. All photos taken by Karston "Skinny" Tannis.
Food styling goodies from Baker, Imagine Brooklyn. All photos here taken by me.
Here is a collection of my personal prop styling work, all created in my home. I like to have fun, and use every day objects in unconventional ways. I took all of the photos here. The painted backgrounds you see in some of the images here is my work as well.
I had the pleasure of prop styling Spring & Summer 2016 product for classic women's brand, Ellen Tracy. All photos here taken by Angela Altus.
Here is a small collection of my paintings. It's a mixture of work on wood, fabric, paper, and canvas. The fabric paintings (image 2 & 6) were made specifically for home goods company, Urban Noir. I took each of the images seen here.
Whimsical is just that; my fun, playful, personal splatter paint projects. Everything from wardrobe & masks, to bike frames to name a few. Photos here taken by myself and various other photographers.
