Local Social Network for the Arts Community in Central Valley
The M Street Arts Complex is a collaborative project. Coming from a mutual appreciation of Fresno's existing creative community, local artists combined forces with Darius Assemi and his team at Granville to answer the question: "what is the next step?"

Hello! I used to come by here back in 2010 as a 20-something year old to blog and post pics of my art. Six years has passed since I last posted my art. I am still making art, though my style has changed. I have matured as an artist. My style is now more expressionist, more abstract, and I do more paintings now. Also, I do acrylic paintings now. I have spent the past 5 years attending CSU Fresno for my Bachelor's and Master's degrees and volunteering as a graphic designer for an…Continue

I have been consulting with an art marketing specialist and today, my art business was featured:
I would recommend Carolyn Edlund / Art Business Institute / Artsy Shark for anyone wanting to discuss marketing and business options. She has been a real help.
It is a fierce love,
that I see
when I look into her eyes.
I can feel the courage in her heart.
She speaks to me,
from a photograph.
the unselfish determination,
the driving force,
in the voices,
that tell her story.
The story of Zoraida “Ale” Reyes,
defender of the persecuted,
began with a declaration:
I am a…Continue
as I heard a fellow poet,
go on and on
about how much Fresno's existence offended and oppressed him,

Difficult to write when the fire is
burning out of control.
Difficult to speak.
I would rather scream,
unhinged at the jaw,
swallowing entire cities whole.
With a knee to the neck,
arms and legs pinned down,
beneath the weight of violence,
blatant disregard to the value of
a human life,
and criminal abandonment,
the soul of a community

Como se desencadenan las ideas,
y se libera de este mal?
Amores son como la fiebre,
cuando uno de los dos quiere mas.
En estas cosas de ternura,
solo es riesgo
Si no te ama con locura,
no tiene ninguna culpabilidad.
no hay nada que se tenga que perdonar.
Así son los amores,
se mueren o se dan.
No vas a perder un…Continue

At this moment,
my heart exploded into sun flowers.
The tips of my fingers, toes and tongues
sprouted beautiful lush greens,
allowing my words to pour out of vines
that ripened into swollen squash ,
with tender creamy yellow flesh.
A new bloom with each step forward .
The fruit ,
settling along the ground I walk on,
growing out in every direction .
The squash open,
seeds pour out at my…Continue

This is my mind.
I guard it with my life.
I have spent too many days and nights,
tirelessly sifting through sand,
gathering up threads and pieces ,
This is my body.
I guard it with my mind.
I have spent too many hours fighting,
to own it.
I cannot give it away to pain
as though it was…Continue

The cars, the signs, the noise,
people with all their toys
The street lights
The city fights
keeps me up at night.
The grind, the push, the stress
Gotta keep moving through this mess
Don't slow down
Too many smiles covered up with a frown
Our lives are the words that everyone shouts
Who said this is what it's all about?
We rant and we rage
BeCause the rules…Continue

Yo no creo en definiciones, ni limitaciones
Mi poder esta en mi corazón
En la belleza que traigo por dentro.
Es mi bendición
Y no dejare
que me detengan
por el simple hecho
que tengo caderas.
Que si puedo ser madre,
Eso a mi
no me limita
Y no me lo…Continue
