Happy First Friday in May to all my magical mermaids and manifestors near and far! I am very excited to share with you this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK – DEREK CARPENTER aka ART OF ONE! Derek and I met years ago when we were both just starting our careers in the Colorado festival/art scene. I remember the day we met at Boulder Vapor House (BVH) like it was yesterday. At the time I was working as a Social Media Strategist & Event Production Assistant for  BVH. I helped coordinate live painters for the very first “Hill Block Party” and he was one of them (see pic below). It is truly amazing to think about how much we both have advanced in our professional careers since the day we met. I feel we are both living testament to what a little hard work and focus can bring to your career. I am so proud to call him one of my friends for life. He has supported my vision for my Manifestation Media class series by attending my recent class at Bodywork Bistro on Instagram Management. Today I return the community love by showcasing a few of his latest works below and offering my fans a discount code for 20% OFF ALL ORDERS FOR THE NEXT MONTH on his new website store: www.artofone.org.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: David Artavia

Happy Hump Day! I am back in action after a blissful 2-week computer screen free trip to the beautiful jungles of Costa Rica and could not be more stoked to share with you all my fave art, photos, and magic moments from the trip. This week’s ARTIST OF THE WEEK is David Artavia whom I discovered while traveling in Costa Rica. David Artavia’s work was displayed outside a surf shop I passed walking the streets of surfer capital – Jacó. I was immediately intrigued when I saw his gorgeous surreal/visionary style and was inspired by these images as well as many of the other colorful and original Costa Rican creations on display. Below are the two paintings that were on display with descriptions included from David’s website. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! #PuraVida #CostaRica #DavidArtavia #Jacó

“When I was a kid I looked at the sea, skys, and landscapes and imagined–as if by magic–God was doing a big painting for everyone to see. He would be changing the colors and shapes with a huge artist brush. So one day I finally got the inspiration to create and put together my vision and ideas on a canvas. I will always be inspired by the Gran Maestro and His wonderful creation.” – David Artavia

BELOW: Nuveo Mundo

“This painting is dedicated to all those who dream of a world of peace and harmony; a magical world where all dreams come true.”– David Artavia

Happy Wednesday! I hope you have been keepin’ it ELEGANT. Super excited to announce this weeks ARTISTS OF THE WEEK! I was intrigued the moment I saw the stunning LuLu Swallow artwork for French producer CloZee‘s new EP. What sounds could possibly flow to this stellar graphic? After listening to the entire EP about 20 times in the last 2 days I do believe I am now certified to say the sound does not disappoint. Yes, it is true the elemental grace of this harmonious blend of tropical electronic jungle beats is ELEGANT. The album artwork by LuLu Swallow and sounds by Chloé CloZee compliment each other with a unique blend of colorfully organic electronic grace and elegance. Can’t wait for CloZee‘s upcoming performaces in Colorado and Costa Rica! Hope to SEE YOU ON THE DANCE FLOOR! #PuraVida
