Who Am I?

DSC_1905Stacie Wooten was born abroad and moved to the U.S. when she was a year and a half. Since then, she has lived in four different states. After spending most of her life trying to fit in, Stacie has now embraced who she is and is wanting to inspire others to do the same.

After graduating from high school, Stacie went on to further her education at Alabama A&M University where she graduated with a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. She is currently a high school science teacher.

Natural Hair

Stacie has been natural since 2005 and has had many ups and downs in her “natural hair journey”. She has combined her knowledge of science, her extensive research, and her personal hair experiences to bring you creative and practical ideas for your hair. Stacie is often approached about being a cosmetologist but is not interested in pursuing that field at this time. For additional information about her natural hair, please visit the “Natural Hair F.A.Q.” page.

Art

Screen Shot 2013-01-20 at 9.05.30 AMAs a child, Stacie was into music. She started playing the piano in the second grade and added the saxophone to her repertoire when she was in the fifth grade. She continued playing both until the eleventh grade but is still able to do a little something-something on both.

It was at that time that Stacie began to act. She was in a play in high school and then went onto college earning a performing arts scholarship. She continued acting in her local area for a short while.

Stacie is also a dancer and used to be a model.Screen Shot 2013-01-20 at 9.00.19 AM

One summer, in one of her artistic compulsions, she purchased a canvas, some paint and some brushes and decided to paint a silhouette of herself. Screen Shot 2013-01-20 at 9.15.53 AMOnce she finished, she simply hung it on her wall. When people would visit her, she often had to discuss the origin of the painting and was encouraged by many to pursue art.

Up until this point, Stacie only dreamed of being an artist and was told by a high school guidance counselor that she was “too smart” to be an artist. This “advice” swayed her to go to college for Biology, since that was her favorite academic subject, which coincidentally was taught by her favorite teacher.

After purchasing canvas after canvas, Stacie’s art began being seen by a couple of friends and in the midst of a tough financial time for her, she sold paintings to help supplement her income.

Now, Stacie is the owner/CEO of StayWoo Arts, Inc. and is currently an earring designer. Her earrings are sought out for their creativeness and originality. She hand makes every single earring and considers each one to be a part of her.

Her earrings can be found on her etsy pageDSC_0123 . She is on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram (@StayWoo).

  1. For some reason as I was reading about you for the first time, I thought instantly of this track, which had me under a spell for the last week. Its called Psalm by Coltrane. The linear notes go something like this, but these were the words he heard from just blowing his horn. Suppose I could have just sent you the link, but this makes it seem even more crazy and intense, though its not quite Ulysses long lol.
    I will do all I can to be worthy of Thee O Lord.
    It all has to do with it.
    Thank you God.
    Peace.
    There is none other.
    God is. It is so beautiful.
    Thank you God. God is all.
    Help us to resolve our fears and weaknesses.
    Thank you God.
    In You all things are possible.
    We know. God made us so.
    Keep your eye on God.
    God is. He always was. He always will be.
    No matter what…it is God.
    He is gracious and merciful.
    It is most important that I know Thee.
    Words, sounds, speech, men, memory, thoughts,
    fears and emotions – time – all related …
    all made from one … all made in one.
    Blessed be His name.
    Thought waves – heat waves-all vibrations –
    all paths lead to God. Thank you God.

    His way … it is so lovely … it is gracious.
    It is merciful – thank you God.
    One thought can produce millions of vibrations
    and they all go back to God … everything does.
    Thank you God.
    Have no fear … believe … thank you God.
    The universe has many wonders. God is all. His way … it is so wonderful.
    Thoughts – deeds – vibrations, etc.
    They all go back to God and He cleanses all.
    He is gracious and merciful…thank you God.
    Glory to God … God is so alive.
    God is.
    God loves.
    May I be acceptable in Thy sight.
    We are all one in His grace.
    The fact that we do exist is acknowledgement of Thee O Lord.
    Thank you God.
    God will wash away all our tears …
    He always has …
    He always will.
    Seek Him everyday. In all ways seek God everyday.
    Let us sing all songs to God
    To whom all praise is due … praise God.
    No road is an easy one, but they all
    go back to God.
    With all we share God.
    It is all with God.
    It is all with Thee.
    Obey the Lord.
    Blessed is He.
    We are from one thing … the will of God … thank you God.
    I have seen God – I have seen ungodly –
    none can be greater – none can compare to God.
    Thank you God.
    He will remake us … He always has and He always will.
    It is true – blessed be His name – thank you God.
    God breathes through us so completely …
    so gently we hardly feel it … yet,
    it is our everything.
    Thank you God.
    ELATION-ELEGANCE-EXALTATION
    All from God.
    Thank you God. Amen.

      1. Np! You know honestly Im a huge words person, but sometimes when I really want to go inwards, when the world seems crazy and helpless, I do love jazz. There’s another piece by Charlie Mingus called ” myself when I am real” which is such a beautiful title in feeling contextually without lyrics. Very reflective, meditative, transcendental. I don’t know if pics can post, but what you said about locks is right on. My brother has been growing for 4 years, so much work, seems exhausting lol , but then again those are the fruits of your labor. I think I’m too lazy. Damn, I really wanted to show you this very amazing Hendrix painting, but it won’t let me post pics.
