Thought-Provokers: Norcross

Atlanta has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Norcross that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I come from a family of architects and painters. All of the males on my mother’s side of the family were architects, and the females were painters.

She was constantly painting and drawing. Read more>>

I’m inspired by my surroundings, certain things I see, experience and think can get the creative process flowing for me. Once I’m inspired I go into my steps of building the project. This includes creating mood boards, location scouting, finding the model to shoot, styling, etc. I created my brand Check Your Ingredients to serve as my why. I was looking to be more self-aware of everything around me and how it affects me. Read more>>

I found my love for drawing, whenever id get put on punishment, or id get bored is spend hours just looking up images online and redrawing my favorite characters.

I’ve always had an interest for photography, just didn’t have the equipment to take it seriously. I’d snapshot with my iPhone and try to capture things that caught my eye, but other than that, it didn’t go any further.

When I started taking photos it was just a hobby. I would capture things like flowers, architecture, landscapes, and whatever else stood out to me.
