Favorite Florida Artist: Has to be Marene K. Downs and Renda Writer. Marene does incredible oceans capes, and Renda does amazing written word art and murals ~ he’s currently doing his World Peace Tour now! Their work speaks to me on many levels. I love Marene’s use of color in her work, and Renda has an incredible ability to turn the most common English phrases into powerful commentary on our society and beliefs.

Favorite Florida Filmmaker: I’m going indie for this one (filmmaker I most admire) Alexandra Bello. She has gone out of her way to really work the film scene in So Flo, and having worked on many projects with her, she brings an incredible energy to the table. She never creates anything less than fantastic. Also Naqi Kawer. He is the absolute most amazing one man show- from pre – post production, Naqi never fails to tell a story well and beautifully. I most admire his cinematography ~ it’s gorgeous!

 

Favorite Florida band: Has to be Octo Gato! They have a hip sound that’s different from most other bands ❤
Adventure attire: Eclectic. I tend to theme my outfits, especially when I am touring. If I could wear anything on an adventure, I’d have some sweet Lolita styles from my favorite retailer, Baby the Stars Shine Bright or Victorian Maiden, shoes from American Duchess, a court gown from the Needle Fairy, and most definitely some boho gear from thrift shops, Ross, TJ Maxx… and head peices from Etsy and Claires. I like buying from independent artists or unique stores whenever I can ~ you always get something unique to you, nothing mass produced, which is nice.Click here to find out more info for Strange True Tours.
