Since day one COVL has been all about overstepping the boundaries of design and creativity while tapping into the realities of mental health, authenticity and being the jefa of a small business. 4 years later and the hustle still continues with no plans of slowing down ⚡️ 〰️ So I’m honored to announce my first campaign (a lot of firsts this year ) with @roarorganic as a ROAR MODEL along with the baddest @iamkittens , @jaclynrjohnson & @robinnyc We’re here to share our stories, our challenges and how we navigate in our industries. Yet we’re also here to celebrate our truth, our hustle and our individuality because HELLO, WHY THE HELL NOT?! 〰️ This year has been so wild and I know it wouldn’t be possible without a solid support system! Thank YOU ALL! As much as this campaign celebrates COVL, it also celebrates YOU✨ 〰️ More news coming soon, stay tuned to @roarorganic Instagram! #FindYourRoar

Happy to be back in my studio and if you can’t tell there’s a lot going on over here but I wouldn’t have it any other way ⚡️
These hands have tirelessly worked (to the point of cramps ) on projects that I never in my 20-something years of existing thought I’d be alive for. 〰️ These hands have protected me from harm, they’ve waded through the waters, they’ve been thrown against punching bags, they know rejection and acceptance to the touch. 〰️ These hands have held hands with folks I’m honored to call my tribe yet these hands have also held hands with folks who’ve learned to never touch these hands again (period ) 〰️ These hands guide me in the dark, they shade me from the light, they wipe away tears, sweat, blood and with much urgency aid those in need. 〰️ Despite all their wear and tear these hands have taught me that I can STILL move in this world with incredible strength, love and good intent. 〰️ What have your hands taught you?
serving you cozy couture, yes I work from home realness ⚡️
started doing this thing where I stop staring at the things I need to finish (for myself ) and just finish it 😅
saying it again for the people in the back🗣 〰️ print drops on @madebycovl tomorrow if ya want it ⚡️
Forever testing, learning and adapting ⚡️ 〰️ coming soonish to @madebycovl
los tres amigos de covl 〰️ as I look back over the years of my werk, it’s been fun to see the progression of my quirky, furry & slimy friends!
6 months in to 2019 I’ve been learning a lot, doing a lot, going through a lot yet experiencing a lot of a lots can be taken however way we see it and I plan to take all this abundance to the very end 😅
FUN FACT: Today marks one year since @aoutrageous and I joined forces ⚡️ 〰️ To keep this brief (although this woman honestly deserves a novel and several awards ) I’d like you all to know that Ashley has played such a pivotal role in both my career and life. She has brought so much to the table as a friend and manager within this past year and as anyone who knows her can agree she is rare and a beautiful person inside and out✨ 〰️ Her tenacity, kindness, understanding, tough love and willingness to hit the ground running with little ol’ me has brought COVL so many beautiful opportunities and experiences. 〰️ I can’t even fathom where COVL would be without this tiny kickass Miami mami in my corner! Much love to you Ashley, thank you for an incredible year and many more to come ⚡️
I’m just happy as fuck 🌈 〰️ Original photo taken by @noemiemarguerite
V IS FOR V E R S A T I L I T Y 〰️ This week for #WhatsCOVL I’m nodding to the importance of obtaining versatility in both work and in life. 〰️ COVL has encouraged me to challenge myself by learning to adapt to new waves, new mediums (to me ) and expanding the line of work that as a business and artist I can offer. 〰️ When I think about versatility, I also think about how I need to be flexible, interchangeable and most importantly willing and able of doing all the above.
GROOVY, BABY 🌈 〰️ My Instagram story filters are now live! So the world can now take and enjoy a little COVL magic on-the-go! 〰️ If you want to peep more BTS of this project and the inspiration behind it all, I updated my site for everyone to check out. 〰️ Major thank you to @parris gif for putting up with my antics for 3 weeks because a nervous, excited and anxious Pisces is never an easy feat🙃
O IS FOR O N W A R D⚡️ 〰️ The O represents the direction and force that COVL moves in. Whether in life or in work, moving onward is the most rudimentary yet pivotal piece of advice that anyone or any lesson can teach you. 〰️ During this digital era, t’s okay to cancel the outside noise and refocus on what makes you happy, what makes you tick and what keeps you moving in the direction of excellence and growth! 〰️ #WhatsCOVL
Met a pretty young thang on the West Coast 🌸 〰️ Becoming IRL friends with your online friends has become my new favorite thing. There’s something really special about connecting and sharing experiences✨ Thank you @evemeetswest for your time and for welcoming me with open arms!
C IS FOR C R A F T 〰️ Craft is one of the four facets that sum up what COVL means. It’s the love, finesse, imagination and creativity that goes back into every project or piece of artwork I create. 〰️ Craft can mean anything to anyone in any industry yet it’s something I think we all tend to protect and nurture as we continue to grow in our purpose. 〰️ With that being said, I hope you all continue to kill it in your craft this week and continue to love and grow along with what you love to do! 〰️ #WhatsCOVL

Tried to be all cool for the ‘gram today but this guy thought otherwise, so here we are 🤷🏽♀️
In the name of love I designed this years #FeelMoreFebruary logo campaign for my good friends over at @fillmoremb ! 〰️ The goal was to design a logo that looks and feels like someone hugged it because who doesn’t love a good ass hugging sesh💕

Recently came to terms with the fact that while I was killing it in my craft, I was neglecting the source that made it all possible ...my mind and body. 〰️ Yet this whole working for yourself while perfecting a balance on a tight rope and being there for everyone and anyone is a lot harder than I expected it to be and a lot harder than people can fathom. 〰️ My need to put myself first was so outdated that I went running to my family and hid for two weeks because me being a sponge in life, I soak up so much energy from others and situations that I wore exhaustion like an accessory. 〰️ My artwork for @undoordinary_ hones into a new journey of me being aware of what I lacked in last year and opening up my heart and mind this year to acknowledge that no amount of success should be the root of my happiness or come before my mental and physical health. 〰️ Cheers to learning, accepting and doing better for ourselves this year & beyond ✨
