Thought-Provokers: Sandy Springs

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 Sandy Springs that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I’ve always loved the art of photography both in front and behind the camera. As I stepped behind the camera though, I found my passion. I have a tremendous love for family and that’s what I hope is reflected in the kind of shots I take. Read more>>

After graduating high school I went on a trip to Italy and in my group was a photographer/art teacher who was willing to teach me some things during that trip. I fell in love with capturing everything around me. I knew straight away this was my calling. Read more>>

Back in Caracas and while enduring a painful divorce, my Dad trained me to work as his business and personal Administrator. Then with my parents’ support I opened my first direct sales company and became the exclusive distributor of a unique arts and crafts line of products imported from the US. My business launched me into the national spotlights hosting my own live educational segment in a weekly television show, and got me running 2 offices, managing 11 employees and up to 200 instructors nationwide and raising my 2 wonderful and active boys all at once! Read more>>

For 13 years I worked full time in marketing and sold my artwork on the side, When I was laid off from my corporate job at the end of 2016, I thought “why not make lemonade out of this lemon?” Now, I am a fulltime artist painting and creating out of my home studio in Cumming, Georgia. Read more>>

Sergio Rodriguez

Music transformed my life into a successful career as a performance artist; as well as a mentor.
I grew up in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. As a teenager, I attended the local music school during the day, and at night, the high school. After I graduated, I taught at a children music school in Tegucigalpa city, and then five years later, I moved to the USA to continue my music studies. I did not have any money with me; the only asset was a violin in my hands. Read more >>
