Â· Do you make a career out of or hope to make a career out of art, or is it a sideline for you?
I am making a career out of it and I have geared my life to be a creative in all dimensions of my life.Â The career comes residually when your life is in sync with where your passions are…. at least thatâ€™s what I think.
Â· What is it about your work that makes it speak to people or to the community at large?
Great question!Â I almost feel like someone other than me should answer it.Â I noticed that my use of colors has always caught peopleâ€™s attention.Â I tend to photograph material that is both conflicting and complimentary.Â So the colors tend to grab someone’s attention and please them while the subject matter makes them think a bit.
Â· How do you let people know about your work?
I do it all the time so if you know me, you cannot help but to know my work or at least that I am a photographer.Â My website it a great link to my work, but a lot of attention has been brought to this through my current photo exhibit Gender Bender.Â Which is on Saturday June 13th in Miami’s Design District for the Art Walk.
Â· What do you feel inspires you to make art in the particular medium you have chosen?
I actually just do what stimulates me and keeps me happy.Â Photography seemed like a great way to express myself and now I have realizes it slowly consumed myself.
Â· Why Miami?
Home sweet home.Â I plan on always being a Miami artist, who can deny the warm sun mixed in with the city surrounded by sand that never fails to give the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen… everyday of my life.Â That being said New York, California and Europe have my attention in the near future as well.
Â· Do you have a favorite artist from the past or present?
Oh yes… too many to name.Â I will try.Â Erykah Badu and Jill Scott speak to my soul.Â Salvidor Dali was my favorite who has ever picked up a paintbrush.Â Photographers I admire most are Miles Aldridge, Mert and Marcus, Mike Ruiz, Steven Klein and David LaChapelle.Â For me theses individuals give so much back to the world we see today.
Â· How would you compare the art scene in Miami to other cities you have lived or worked in?
It is vibrant here in Miami.Â The only downside is that Miami does not seem to bring the Arts to the light of attention as much as New York or Europe does.Â It seems more spread out and underground.Â If I had my way the Arts would be on the news everyday instead of the thieves and murderers.
Â· If someone wanted to get into being an artist, what would be your first suggestion to them?
Do not think twice and jump into it mind body and soul.
