Royel Bijou was born out of a desire to honor my grandfather who always supported me and my wacky ways. I used the letters in his name to create Royel and Bijou just means beautiful which I feel, he was a beautiful soul. I bet you're wondering who I am, well I am a mother of three. I am a poet, a recycle/up-cycle artist and I am a fashion designer who teaches dance. Try saying that four times fast. For the past 20 years I have gotten involved in making art by reusing and recycling what I already have in my possession. Every piece is made from sustainable materials. Nothing can be reproduced. Through this, I have found a wonderful medium to turn trash into beautiful works of art.
That is not all I do. As you will soon see on this site, I use my many gifts and talents in the literary world, as well as dance and fashion to teach people ways to unleash their creative minds. I find that by using these skills I can be one of many who can build a community with others and strengthen the stagnant brains to think outside themselves. I want to bring together collective souls that encourage, strengthen, and have them support one another. I will embody a pathway for people to explore themselves internally and externally. I am comical and silly and I truly enjoy bringing people from all walks of life together to share, to explore, to uplift through art.
Thank you for visiting Royel Bijou, Please stay tuned for new and updated projects, products and events.
