Our client, @alexandra_arata , has experienced an incredible year expanding her art practice. Not only has she increased her client volume and visibility in the DMV, but she has secured several international exhibitions as well. To top it all off, she has an opening at the Argentinian Embassy tonight AND was featured in @modern.luxurydc this month. Felicidades!
Look at my Young Woo! Today is her first Style N Tea podcast recording at the @202creates studio. I couldn’t be more proud of this woman! It’s such a joy to walk with you on this journey. Proud big sis! 💕

Kicking off a big week inspired from Art Basel and HONORED to share a very special feature in the December issue of @capitolfilemag 🙌🍾 I am humbled and a bit emotional being included in “District of COLOR” with some of the most exceptional artists from Washington DC.🙏😱 I have looked to Sam Gilliam and @annemarchandart since I started my career. It has also been a pleasure to get to know @j_s_o_n_a_r_t_ and share a page of COLOR. Collaborations to follow for sure👍 If you know me, my art, my philosophy on life and people ...you know I believe in COLOR and to be recognized among these artists for 🌈is the best kind of press. 🥇THANK YOU “Color is my muse, my addiction and my therapy. It affects me and moves me in a way that is not easy to explain completely. Color can calm, motivate, inspire and provoke emotion and reactions in people and I believe in color. almost like a religion. Color theory states no color next to another is ever the same. Your eye sees color in context to what it's placed next to. I believe people are the exact same.” #liveincolor#dcartist#dcarts#ilovedc#202creates#popart#makeart#acreativedc#maggieo#maggieoneillfineart#socapitolfile#thankyou
