This is the first half of the Art Pays Me Live Recording! In the first half of the show I interviewed Geordan Moore of Quarrelsome Yeti about his unique aesthetic, how he’s been able to establish a successful career as an illustrator and whether he considers himself a fashion designer since a lot of his work ends up on clothes.
Painter, Video Artist and Textile Artist and Yale School Of Art student, Hangama Amiri chatted with me about the powerful statements in her art, having multiple identities and success in the fine art world.
Erin Trafford and I talk about her roots in journalism and as an “OG” in the influencer game. Erin explains what it means to be a city mouse and country mouse and how she uses those dual identities to win over clients.
On Episode 12 I chat with Architect and Adjunct Professor and lecturer at Dalhousie University School of Architecture, Eric Stotts about what an architect does, what skills an aspiring architect should develop and why it’s important to consider history and human need when creating new developments.
On episode 11 of Art Pays Me, I speak with Grammy nominated, MTV Award and Cannes Lions Award winning Director, Andy Hines about how he went from making videos for clients in Nova Scotia to directing music videos for ASAP Mob and how that gave him the industry credibility to work with other big artists.
This week’s episode features Gaynete' Jones, a leading millennial mentor, motivational speaker, best-selling author, blogger, founder of G.A.M.E. Changing Industries, Youtuber, plus the creator of The Goal Chaser VIP and The Book Boss Blueprint, programs she created for aspiring millennial entrepreneurs and self-published authors. Most importantly, she’s my sister in-law so we’re keeping it in the family this week. And yes… She refers to me as DJ like most of my family back home.
I'm excited to introduce the first episode of the Art Pays Me Podcast! I'm a visual communicator first and foremost but I really enjoy the medium of podcasting. I'm proud of the work that I did while on the Changing the Narrative Podcast but with a family, work and business commitments I wasn't able to contribute at the level that I needed to.
