As a “ARTIST” what do you expect future “ARTIST” to learn from you.

 As an artist I expect the future artist to learn that it's okay to try to bring every wild idea they have into fruition. I want them to learn that it's normal to fail a few times before getting it right. Then I want them to say fuck that! There is no right or wrong way to create your art. That if it comes out how you envisioned it then that's all that matters. It personally took me a while to come to terms with that. I like to think of myself as a perfectionist, so I wouldn't release anything until I felt it was "right". Now that I create my own version of "right" I can let everyone in on my quirkiest thoughts and ideas.

 How do you think you're changing the game.

Hmm, I think I'm changing the game by building a platform (my blog) for not only myself but my peers to display their craft. I never wanted to be the "typical blogger" that everyone is used to seeing. I want my website to be a place where creatives can seek out inspiration as well as aspire to one day have their work displayed there. My blog has never only been about me, I want my selflessness to show in my work and on my platform. And with doing this I hope this changes the "blog game" 

 Who’s the biggest influence in your work in the industry right now.

My biggest influence right now... Well, I have three numero uno is my girl YesJulz! I have watched her growth from the beginning when she was just throwing parties in Tampa and Miami to now being the representatives of big brands. She's the definition of a powerhouse and I aspire to be as driven and determined as her one day. As far as fashion, I absolutely hate to admit this but it's Kylie Jenner I freak'n live for that little rich bitch! I love her and whoever the hell her stylist is because they're doing a great job. And lastly a famous Atlanta hairstylist @Iamminglee. Her marketing for that weave she sells OMG! Like she gets the whole idea or making your craziest ideas happen.
