Interview With Sculptor and Artist Tamarica Washington

Photos Provided By: Tamarica Washington

Me: Thank you so much for the opportunity to have you on my blog. Please tell us a little about yourself.


Tamarica: My name is Tamarica Washington, I’m 25 years old. I’m happily married to my husband Cle’Andre Washington. Together my husband and I have 3 kids and 1 baby boy on the way. I’ve been drawing since I was a little girl. Last year when the pandemic first started, I retired from being a hair braider after 6 years to pursue my art career. I’m a God fearing woman, God blessed me with my gifts so I use them to give him the glory. 

Me: What was your inspiration in starting your sculptures?


Tamarica:  I was tired of doing the same thing. I wanted to do something different, something I haven’t done before to challenge myself. I’m so glad I did because I love sculpting so much. I still have a lot to learn but I’m enjoying the process



 Me: What beautiful work. I see you do not just do sculptures but you also do painting.  Please tell my readers about that.


Thank you, yes I started off painting and got the idea to add braiding hair on a painting one day to go in my hair studio in 2018. That painting actually went viral and made the shade room Instagram page which blew my mind. God showed me that I needed to go after my dream, so here I am 2 years later finally pursuing my dream as a full time artist. 



Me: I am super excited to see that you’re offering the opportunity for work to be purchased. Please tell my readers where your items that are for sale may be viewed.


Tamarica: I have prints, stickers, buttons, original painting, and sculptures will be added soon on my website. My website will be up soon, it’s currently under construction. You can find my website in the link in my bio on social media: Instagram: @mara_artist Facebook: Tamarica Washington



 Me: Do you offer mentoring or classes for those who love to learn?


Tamarica: At the moment I do not offer mentoring or classes, but you can book me for private party parties. 




Me: Please share with us the one piece that means  a lot to you?

Tamarica: The piece that means the most to me is my painting with the brain and big blue butterfly. The painting is called Romans 12:2, Be not be conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. God gave me this imagery and it was actually my first painting from the Bible. A year later God made that scripture personal to me so I created it as my very first sculpture. I was able to minister to others through my art and telling my testimony. These 2 pieces made me realize I’m doing exactly what I’ve been called to do. The brain symbolizes your mind and the butterfly symbolizes the transformation. I have a video both on Instagram and Facebook of me ministering this particular piece. There’s so much meaning and beauty in it. 


Me: If you had the opportunity to tell your younger self something, what would  that be?


Tamarica: I would tell my younger self to go after your dreams now, don’t wait just step out there on faith. 


Me:  What advice  would give an inspiring artist?

Tamarica: My advice to any inspiring artist is to do what you love. Make your own art not what someone else wants you to make. Be original, unique, God gives us all ideas so be open and creative. Don’t let negativity stop you, whether it’s negative feedback or negative thoughts about your art. Never stop doing what you love.


Me: Please share your social media pages.

Interview With Personal Trainer Elizabeth of Best Of Liz

Me:    Please share with my readers a little about yourself.   Elizabeth: Hi, My name is Elizabeth (but only my dad still calls me by my full name), but most people know me as Liz. I'm a level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and lover of movement in all forms. Our bodies are great tools, and I love exploring what my body can do.    Me: Tell me what inspired you to start your fitness training journey?   Elizabeth: I was super active from a very young age. As soon as I could walk, I was running, and I was really fast!!! Growing up, I used to race all the boys in my neighborhood and win, but my love of movement meant I didn't want to just run, but I wanted to jump, bound, throw, try and succeed in everything. So instead of competing in just one discipline, I trained as a Hephthalite in my teenage years. At 18, I gave it up to focus on my studies, and as I began working to support myself, I ended up tending bars in London's biggest nightclubs, to eventually managing them. The more

Skin Color Doesn't Dictate Love

Written By: Felecia Causey Models:Casey, Tommy, Annelise, Aiyanna, and Alaina Rockwell    In a world where there should not be a boundary when it comes to love. Unfortunately in reality, we live in a place where people have a cap or visual of what and how a person should be or look like. There is also a “norm” of what a family should like.  What so many fail to do is mind the business that pays them. There are so many families that may look different, but their love for each other is as strong as any other family is. When you view from the innocent eyes of a child they don’t see color or see different, they are not aware that people despite their family, all they see in their sweet eyes, is unconditional love. There is no acceptance in their home and around most family members, or friends, but it is a factor in what love should look like in a cruel world where the color of your skin plays a factor in what love should look like. In such a time, where skin color is a very sensitive su
