About Me

I love the Spirits, Saints, and Orisha. All of my art work is so inspired through their graces.

I collect religious icons...especially Virgin Mary statues and pictures.

I love the "Virgin of Guadelupe" and all things Latin and Hispanic.

I collect images of the SACRED HEART and I collect ceramic pumpkins. They are all over my house and we always leave our Halloween decorations up all year round (well most of them).

I have an aversion to christmas. You might as well put a sign on Santa's chest that says "Save at Walmart" or "apply here for your christmas credit card". All christmas is to me is commercialism. In fact we hang Santa from our big oak hanging tree on Halloween night. This is just not a good subject with me...

But The Day of the Dead, Halloween, All Saints Day are all a part of the celebrations in this house.

I work for the state of Florida as a wildfire dispatcher, and most other times you can find me in my studio. I love high gloss glittery objects. I love bright colors.Bright reds, yellows, greens ,blues, orange of course.

I am not big on Pastels and baby blues and such.

I live with 2 dogs, and a cat that likes to terrorize the dogs!! But I love all animals and think that ppl who are meaan to animals just suc. I am not afraid of spiders, snakes, or bugs, although I do have an aversion to those huge Palmetto Bugs that we have thousands of here in Florida. EEEEwwwww.

I am child of the orisha Yemonja or also known as Yemaya. IFA is my religion, if you don't know too much about it...Google it!! But I believe in Jesus Christ, and GOD, and the Holy Spirit, as well as other Avatars such as Buddha.

I have an illness called fibromyalgia. It is very painful and has restricted my life by about 85% over how I used to be. So the friendliest place for me is the studio at my home. When I am involved in art I forget about my pain and become very comfortable.

I love to give gifts and I love surprises so I am hopeful that Swap Bot will become a hobby I will enjoy for a long time to come.

OH I ABSOLUTELY HATE CLOWNS!!!

Favorite Music

All Music.... but my all time favorite is Southern Rock, thats what I was raised on, good ole "GRITS"(girl raised in the South) gal, Any old Lynryd Skynyrd, 38 Special,Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot,REO Speedwagon... bring back good memories,and the urge to dance and sing. Am I showing my age?? Probably..Its funny I remember growing up and going shopping in the malls with my mom and hearing what we called Muzac over the speakers...Oldies...now the Muzac is Journey, Yes, Lynyrd Skynryd...lol, makes you feel old huh??

Favorite Movies

Armageddon, The Last of the Mohicans, Kingdom of Heaven, Crazy in Alabama, Domino, John Carpenters "Vampires" series, Dusk til Dawn, Woman on Top, A Knights Tale, First Knight, Merlin, Chocalat', The Mummy Series, The Tomb Raider Series,

Favorite Television

Ghost Hunters, Most A&E series shows, Weeds, Greys Anatomy, FireFly

Favorite Crafts

All things Glitter, Glam, inspired, and with High Gloss Shine!! But as I am exploring this swap bot adventure I find that ATCs are giving me a headache!!! Ouch!! I throw away about 2 - 3 cards for every 1 I make....Damn..its hard to be an artist sometimes.

Comment: Mariah girl you ROCK! I Love, Love, Love, did i say Love my shrine! The Virgin has never looked so beautiful! You are a talented artist. I am so happy to see a fellow artist put so much work and love into a piece. Anyone that gets you as a Swappie Mami is a veru lucky person. I will sit it in my shrine with the rest of my dolls, saints etc. Thank you girl! Lots of Blessings, Mia
