Sophia El-Hayek | Phenic natural skincare

BRAND OWNER

“Our story at Phenic starts with Mediterranean olive oil; filled with skin healing nutrients and antioxidants, and an age old family recipe that was passed down through generations. My family in Lebanon has a grove of olive trees which are picked and pressed each year. We use the oil produced, “Liquid Gold” as our family secret to glowing Mediterranean skin. Our brand name Phenic, comes from Phoenician which describes the ancient Mediterranean people of Lebanon. The Phoenicians were merchants and traders sharing Mediterranean goods with the rest of the world. Following in this tradition, I want to share the wisdom of Lebanese skincare with the rest of the world.”

Brendan Lehman

VISUAL ARTIST

“Similar to meditation, I treat the process of painting as a practice of self awareness by observing and re-creating that which each passing moment has to offer. Through sporadic brush strokes and scribbles, faces and figures begin to appear and an abstract narrative starts to form.

After experiencing the impact creating art has had on me, I’m driven to inspire others to act on their potential despite their fears and push forward despite their pain. I believe that by audaciously and genuinely following our individual passion, we are given an opportunity to attain a long-lasting sense of fulfillment: fulfillment that is brought through finding and expressing what is already inside us, rather than consuming more of what is not us.”

Daisy Hernandez

VISUAL ARTIST

“I use painting as a form of visual storytelling, often stemming from my own childhood and adult experiences. As early as I can remember I was always fascinated with human behavior, existence, and my own intake of the world. Many of these subjects I was interested in I found difficult to explain in words, so I began drawing them instead. I was quickly told however that I should be drawing things that were more “pretty” like classic landscapes and portraits. Instead I did the opposite. My work takes on a more unconventional side of beauty that is represented through surreal and imaginative landscapes, figures, and faces. Just as creating work that is authentic to me has helped me discover who I Am as a person, I’m hoping viewers will experience the same feeling of discovery when I bring my ideas to life. I believe that there is an entire world of imagination that each of us has inside, but most are afraid of it, feel as though they’ve lost it, or don’t know how to show it. With my work my goal is to express this lost world while inspiring others to find theirs.“

Wolfman

VISUAL ARTIST

The main focus of my work is to show the importance of our mental health. The reality of mental illness. Raw emotions. That’s what I paint. Having MDD (major depressive disorder), bipolar and PTSD has had a major impact on my life. Even if you’re not diagnosed with a mental illness, everyone has stress in their life. Everyone is grieving. Everyone has anxieties and insecurities. I want people to understand that they’re not alone and that suicide isn’t the answer. Being kind and sharing love to everyone around you is extremely important and whatever it is in this life that brings you happiness, go for it. Our time is never guaranteed. I’m currently based in Elmwood Park, NJ. The majority of my work is acrylics on canvas. I’m self-taught. I’ve always been an artist but have only seriously been painting the past two years . I’m living drug/alcohol free. I had been self medicating since I was a teenager. I’m 30 years old. Painting is my life now.

Richard Shannon

VISUAL ARTIST

I hope that my artwork stimulates your thoughts and imagination, and brings a personal escape like it does for me. The art work on this web site was done between the years of 1971 to 2018
 This is where I could escape the real world. This is where I could work out personal inner struggles. This is where I think about god. This is where I think about the universe.  This is where I would go when I am depressed. Drawing saved my life.
 I would only look at books when I was young only if they had pictures. I would get in trouble in the first few grades of school for taking reems of ppaer and drawing on them. I have been drawing on and off all my life. Sometimes day and night for monnths.  I grew up in the Boston area where I still live. I attended  The School of The Museum of Fine Arts Art  from 1975 through 1979. ARTWORK you can enlarge or zoom in on each picture. The page called MORE ARTWORK you can also enlarge each picture to get a better view.
