Scales of Style, Etichat, and Out of My Mouth Inspired at the Frist Center for Visual Arts

Art and Inspiration

You never know where your path will lead you…. Well, last week, it lead me to a photo shoot at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts with Mariah, creator of Out of my Mouth, and Thallen, creator of Etichat.

Now, this photo shoot was a little different for me. Not only are we all bloggers, but we’re also all black, women, and attorneys.

Feature Friday – Interview with Mariah

 


Feature Friday 

“I’ve always loved reading and writing. I was in a short story contest in 3rd grade and I think I got 2nd or 3rd place. Ever since then, I figured I would either read or write for a living.” – Mariah

Feature Fridays are back, and I’m really excited about the features I have lined up this month! In honor of black history month I’m intentionally featuring black history makers in my Feature Friday posts. First up, I have a fellow blogger, lawyer, and advocate. She’s a great writer, and happens to be using her skills to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of black people this month (in this country and abroad) through a collection of poems.

And for that reason, once I caught wind of Amelia’s Flower Truck, I knew at some point I had to check it out.
