Ladies Love Project introduces a model for all women who pay homage to market life around the globe as a staple of community building, and of starting your own independent business.

About Toofly: Maria Castillo, Toofly’s birth name is an NYC artist, community builder and entrepreneur. Recognized in the early 90’s for her hard and fluid character style, she gained popularity as one of the few females in a male graffiti dominated scene who rocked walls with the best but also empowered other women to follow suit. In 2007 she co-founded a 100+ international female arts collective she entitled YOUNITY. Toofly now runs an independent design company called STAY TRU where she consults, designs, and organizes community events and youth workshops. Toofly’s constant and active role in her community allows her to stay true to her roots, as she continues to draw raw feelings from the ever-changing art world around her.
