Day 5.. Tamiko Intro & GiveAway

Today is day 5 of the introductions and my name is Tamiko McCurry. Some of you know me as MEKOfoSHO on many of my social media platforms!  I am a born and raised Chicagoan!  Growing up in Chicago, IL, I never thought one could be an artist unless they had sold work in galleries or were acknowledged/recognized by some formally educated artistic community, until I became an art journaler/mixed media artist . So many can'ts became cans and because of that, I EMBRACE the title, ARTIST.  

I am totally stoked and honored to say I am a part of  the One BADASS Art Journal Online Workshop of 2017!! ::insert super loud wild woman yells here:: . As I look at the picture below, I think... She's a BADASS.. She's a BADASS! & She's a BADASS and so on!!  I hope that you will join us and EMBRACE your inner BADASS too!!

Check out this awesome intro!!!

It is such a wonderful feeling to be in a line up with such amazing artists and/or sister-friends. Some I have admired over some time, some I have personally taken e-courses or watched youtube videos from, some I have watched their work transcend beyond anything we could have possibly fathomed and some I can't wait to experience (smiles). This will be my first time as an online instructor and I am feeling an abundance of emotions, most importantly gratitude, at being given an opportunity to share with you all, something I once only did to keep my own sanity (smiles).  Thank you Tiare Smith!!
