    Drawing Caricatures as Work, How Fun is That?

    in Work

    For this episode of Conversations in the Zone, I have the privilege to chat with Susan Moreno, a contemporary abstract artist based in Atlanta, GA. Susan attended The Art Institute of Chicago and The Atlanta College of Art where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art in 1987. Susan is an award-winning artist whose work has appeared in numerous juried shows including the Decatur Fine Arts Exhibition at The Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College. Her collectors include, The Bank of Atlanta, Decatur Arts Alliance, as well as, private collectors in Atlanta and Arizona. Susan grew up in Florida and was around water for much of her formative years. These early memories of water and movement are the foundation for her present work, as she pours paint on canvas and wood. The idea of unrestricted movement and liquidity are her primary concerns. She uses sand and charcoal to add texture and associations of earthiness to her images.


    With over 25 years of experience Susan has entertained professionally in the Atlanta area, as well as out of state with caricatures. Over the years Susan has drawn countless caricatures for corporate events such as conventions, trade-shows, employee and customer appreciation, wedding receptions and much more.


    Her client list includes Atlanta Magazine, PYA Monarch, Greystone Power, Georgia Power, AT & T, Delta, Coke, Georgia Power, just to name a few.  For more information about Susan and the work she loves, visit www.susanmoreno.com, caricaturesbysusan.com or digitalcaricaturesatlanta.com.

    Piggybank2Prosperity - Youth on the Road to Entrepreneurship

    in Entrepreneur

    My guest is Pamela Fowler, Founder of Piggybank2Prosperity, created in December 2013. Their mission is to expose young people to the opportunities of becoming an entrepreneur. She passionately believes "The creative mind that God has given us will form an idea that He will develop and bring into existence. We believe standing on God's promises produces prosperity not as the world knows it, but as God gives it.  Dreams that have action can take you anywhere."


    Their young clients learn that working hard can fulfill their dreams and they encourage young people and young adults to find ways to make money to help them go to college or pay college debt after their education. Whatever the financial need, they can think of ways to help others and be a blessing through a product or a service. They also discuss how money travels in a circular motion - you must give to receive. Giving also creates a ripple effect. Their goal is to set in motion waves of blessings from one person to the next.

    Live Life Like an Islander

    in Work

    As an Actress, Educator, and even a Copy Editor, Selena Anduze, has a penchant for learning all there is to enhance the journey of being human. With a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, a Master's degree in Natural Health, and a PhD in Naturopathic Medicine, Selena dedicates all she has learned to living the life of an “intellectual artist.” 


    A native US Virgin Islander, Selena, is no stranger to “island time,” which in a nutshell means relax, let go of conformity, and find your Zen or "Know Thyself." In fact, every facet of her life is in some way a reflection of the mind, body and spiritual wellness that vacationers often believe they can only achieve by visiting the simplicity of the beach. If you were to ask Selena what she does for a living, she'd smile and answer, "I’m a human."


    As an actress, she takes great care in deconstructing the soul of a character, then reconstructing it in her image so that she can portray the human condition on stage or on screen. And in the classroom, Selena takes great joy in teaching her students about the structure and function of the human body, the vessel for one’s mind and spirit. The saying, "Know Thyself" resounds in her work. It is her belief that if one lives life like an Islander, taking time to reconnect with their mind, body and spirit, therein lies the key to one’s own personal paradise. It is with great pride that she uses her skills of performance to not only entertain, but also teach others about the glorious and despicable truths of being human.
