All I can say is that I so appreciate this woman’s creativity - on all levels. Check out this month’s DOSE with natural hair enthusiast, painter, jewelry maker and overall creative, Toni Daley.
I’m Toni. I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I have a love for natural hair and passion for creating art.
I’m a natural hair vlogger on youtube and love sharing my creative ideas on hair, art and jewelry in my videos.
It’s become a favourite pastime of mine now…I just love connecting with people through the world wide web…it’s amazing the people you can connect with that you would have never otherwise knew existed.
What are you creatively addicted to? When did you start?
Right now I’m addicted to creating images of natural haired beauties in my paintings.
I’ve been addicted to painting for a while, I started when I was about 13 years old but as I’ve gotten older, matured and my interests evolved so did my art.
What inspires you?
I create because…I think I have to. I get an image in my head that may have been inspired by something or someone and I just have the need to get it out….bring it to life. At this point in my life I am mainly inspired by natural afro textured hair.
During my journey I’ve gained such a new found love and appreciation for the beauty that we possess naturally and are often too afraid to show that I just want to show it in every form I can!
My inspiration, however can change from day to day or even minute to minute.
Where can people find your work?
I have an online picture album at http://www.fotki.com/tonidaley and I have an online store where I sell many of the things I create at http://www.afrodisiacs.etsy.com and of course, youtube at http://www.youtube.com/tonidaley80
I hope you all fell in love like I did.
THANKS FOR THE DOSE OF CREATIVITY!
