In this episode 2.10 of My Creative Life, I have Alicia Young a children's book illustrator, mural artist, and glitter painter. She was kind enough to be interviewed and share her process with me. Here is a little about her below:
Alicia loves being a Jesus follower and Texas girl. She attended art college in beautiful Connecticut, and received her BFA in Painting in 2009 from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. Alicia truly enjoys illustrating Childrens' books, painting murals, and  recently released her own two devotional books! She thanks the Lord for the gift of art and truly desires to spread joy and to bring God glory through each unique piece she creates!

About Stephen Frink
Stephen Frink is among the world’s most frequently published UW photographers, with a career spanning four decades. He arrived in Key Largo in 1978 to open a small studio dedicated to UW photo services, primarily renting cameras and processing E-6 slide film, but he soon began to receive assignments to photograph and write articles for the consumer dive publications of the day. He worked as a photojournalist for Skin Diver magazine for 17-years, covering much of the Caribbean, Bahamas, and Florida Keys for the publication. Subsequently he worked as the Director of Photography for Scuba Diving magazine. Most recently, and for the past 10 years, Stephen has been the publisher of Alert Diver Magazine, a beautiful coffee-table collectible magazine for the members of the Divers Alert Network.

He sits on the Boards of Directors of the Coral Restoration Foundation and the Florida Keys chapter of the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, and is active with various ocean conservation initiatives.

2.08 Episode Reema Zoumut, Animation/Graphic Design/Photo Teacher


In this episode 2.08 I had the honor of interviewing Reema Zoumut, or "Mrs. Z" as she is fondly called by her students. Her teaching career spans 30 yrs and she teaches high school animation, graphic design, and photography. I'm very fortunate that a little over 2 years ago I google searched animation teachers, and her name comes up at the top of the list. Reema helped me create my own animation pathway from sharing her extensive knowledge in education and art. Her website at her high school is a great resource for those interested in teaching digital media.  Her students have gone on to work for major game industry companies such as Blizzard. Sorry the audio quality is not the best. We had some tech issues, so had to record via cell phone.
