Anthony Amos: Artist and Creator

"I fell in love with drawing at 4-years-old. My mom introduced me to drawing as a creative outlet. Around 10, my grandmother enrolled me in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. I got into customizing shoes at 13 because my family couldn't afford to buy fresh kicks but twice a year. It was embarrassing, I hated waiting to be fresh. On a random day, I painted a pair of all-white Air Forces and they were a hit the next day at school. Art kept money in my pockets as a teenager." What do you do and why? I’m a visual artist and sneaker customizer. I create because it's a passion. How does what you do benefit others? My work helps people to define and express themselves in color & style. I also help my clients energize their workspace or homes with dynamic artwork.  Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. I made the decision to be a career artist after I was laid off from a good job. During this time

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model.

Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

Mia Ross: Budding SuperModel Wonder

  What do you do and why do you do it? My name is Mia Ross. The career I have chosen has been Modeling, I chose modeling because I absolutely love fashion. Creating art with my body is the ultimate self expression for me.  How does what you do benefit others?   Modeling helps others by providing a vision. It provides a fantasy for other to see themselves in a different light. My career is also great for creative expression. There are no creative limits in fashion. Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. My career has been nothing short of a roller coaster. There have been many ups and downs but isn’t that the fun of roller coaster anyway? I have worked to find who I truly am through modeling. I have been denied more times then I would like to count but that’s what has made me the determined person I am now. I have shown myself I don’t take no for an answer. My journey has also shown me I have a drive to help others, this drive has lead me into being a fitn
