Meet Cindy McKenzie – Support her on December 19th

Saturday December 19th!! Produce Market at the Grenada Youth Centre. Total local so remember to come out and support.

Today meet the amazing multi-talented Cindy McKenzie!!

 

 

Cindy McKenzie was born in a small village in St Patrick’s Grenada in 1970, into a typical West Indian family where it was very common for children to be raised by grandparents, auntie and nenens (godmothers). She feels fortunate to have had a village upbringing, in the days when the road was her playground and doors were never locked. Her first years of education started at Miss Redhead’s pre-school, continued at the St Patrick Roman Catholic School, the St Paul’s Government School, and later the St Joseph’s Convent, St George.

Cindy migrated to the UK in 2007, but after seven winters,  moved back to her island in the sun, Grenada, where she gets to explore and nurture her passions and creativity, through writing-  sharing stories on her blog- (www.cindymac.info) and Facebook postings-(https://www.facebook.com/Cindy-McKenzie-Author), as well as her new discovery in her Rustic Selections – (https://www.facebook.com/rusticselections). With Cindy, nothing is set in stone, well nothing except her Rustic Creations, which are sent in concrete!

Cindy recently published her book ‘Force Ripe’ and will also be selling copies at the market.

Set on the island of Grenada, Force Ripe it tells the traumatic story of a young girl who endures a rough childhood of parental neglect, abandonment, substance abuse and foster care…but strives to overcome it all!

Meet Shellon Art – Support her on Dec. 19th

DECEMBER 19TH! REMEMBER TO CHECK OUT THE MARKET AT THE GRENADA YOUTH CENTRE FROM 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

TOTAL LOCAL!! COME OUT AND SUPPORT!!

Today we feature participant Shellon Art. Talented, creative, innovative…

Shellon is a young aspiring freelance Caribbean artist/blogger. While she recently finished her Bsc. degree in Wildlife Conservation Biology, she has completed her GCE ‘A’ levels in Fine Arts as well as ‘O’ levels in Visual Arts. One of the primary pillars of inspiration for her artistic ventures is the passion and brilliance of the Caribbean energy. Thus, many of her pieces incorporate bright, vibrant colours. Additionally, she enjoys being around nature and often tries to capture these scenes both above land and underwater. One of her favourite island spots is the Carenage, and this is reflective in her ‘Carenage at night’ series. Her work is also very experimental in that she paints a bit of everything on everything. It is not limited to canvas and paper, but extends to fabrics, walls, whatever she can get her hands on.


Come on out and meet the artist and support her work.

For more information on Shellon visit her facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ShellonArt/

Support Kazzelle Care – Produce Market

Remember Saturday December 19th the Grenada Youth Centre gon shell down! Until then, you get to meet some of the participants in the event through these daily features.

Today meet Kazelle Care!


1) What/Who is Kazelle Care?

Kazelle describes her products Kazelle Care as a feeling. It is the care and love manifested in Mind, Soul and  Body care products. Using the most organic ingredients to nurture ones being.
2) What inspired the company to be what it is?

Kazelle firstly is an actual person – she is a Grenadian living in the USA. As a child she suffered with ‘galley’ problematic skin which her grandmother would treat with natural, home made concoctions such as cocoa fat, aloes, Corilley bush bath, sapodilla leaf bath, and even internal detox  teas to rid blood of impurities. So her interest in skin care started at a young age.

While living in the USA and experiencing the different changes in climate, she would send home for cocoa fat and coconut oil to combat the changing weather and the effects it has on her skin. This developed into the production of body balms, bath oils, sugar scrubs and soaps – used as gifts for family then products sold. With the support of her extensively large family Kazelle Care is growing and reaching people across the globe.

sugarbalm'

3) Where are the products from?

Though it is packaged in the USA the raw materials are obtained through the Fair Trade Act from countries such as Africa, Grenada, and in the USA.

 4) What is next for the Kaz Care Company?

Only God knows what is next, the hopes for the company is that his will be done to the best of our ability.

Please visit her website for more information: http://kazellecare.bigcartel.com/

As she signs in all her emails…

Support,
Because Kazelle Cares
