A4 Signed Print - Can't Touch This


My first print from my MaCuMere Open Collection of paintings. MaCuMere (pronounced: maa-coo-may) is a Caribbean-creole expression meaning "a good female friend".

This painting depicts a not-so-humble MaCuMere. She still doesn't need to look in the mirror for that "one last look" because she knows she looks more than fine! Is she vain? Kinda lol.

My on-going collection of MaCuMere paintings depicts the "growing pains and stable joys" in the life of my fictional twenty-something year old character. She is the manifestation of all those female friends you knew who spoke wise words... usually after tripping up on their own misfortunes. She is the voice of reason; a living book of counsel; a flower on the edge of full-bloom; a living experiment; a stubborn kinda girl; someone who makes you laugh; cries with you; that dependable pillar of support. She has a lot to say. Some things sweet... some things bitter. But always "on point".

Why not pair with this print with:

"MaCuMere sAYs... Gawn with Your Bad Self."

to make a suitably matched duet. (As shown in the second product photograph). A perfect treat for you... or a gift for your MaCuMere.
