meet the muses


Gypsy Eyez

Born June Lejoi in Detroit Michigan, Gypsy Eyez settled in Atlanta in 2009 with her mother in pursuit of a better life. While Gypsy admits she initially despised the city, she has found a comfortable platform for her career as a professional model and her company Ju~ju Beads. “ When asked what being a muse means to her, she replies “Being a muse to me means embracing and loving the vision that someone sees in you. That your presence and your energy is so omnipotent that it inspired an artist or many artists to create works in the light of you... ...it’s truly an honor.”

"...As a muse that’s what I try to do. I try to uplift and inspire those around me by connecting with people, bringing out the best in them because I’m not just the beautiful photograph, or picture that someone sees of me. “

An honor that she has had the pleasure of bearing not just for Spencer Charles, but for many Atlanta art scene notables such as Chilly –O and Trill Americana. This gift, is not one that Gypsy takes lightly, as she believes being a muse ultimately comes with a higher social and spiritual responsibility; I feel that with this adoration of your beauty, not just aesthetically but the all encompassing beauty of who you are, that is put forth in the world a muse should use that for good. As a muse that’s what I try to do. I try to uplift and inspire those around me by connecting with people, bringing out the best in them because I’m not just the beautiful photograph, or picture that someone sees of me. “ Gypsy knows the power she posses on camera and off, and says this attribute is one of her favorite things about being a woman; “My favorite thing about being a woman is knowing the power I hold. A lot of women do not recognize that they are beautiful, strong beings. I feel one of my life’s missions is to help young girls and women find their power, their purpose their truth.” With so much knowledge of and vision for herself, what’s the one thing Gypsy wishes all men overstood?: The value they hold to their female counterparts “I wish men knew the importance and value they have in the women and young girls in their lives and around them. What he does she sees...the way he carries himself, the way he speaks, the way he treats her is how she views men, who she dates, who she thinks she deserves. .. I want you all to know that I see you and that I love you, that you all are important and you all do not hear it enough.”
