Vincent’s newest artistic goals are to create stories through film that focus on faith, hope and love.
Have you ever had emotions you could not explain or had trouble describing a situation with words? Visual communication is so important in our society and the majority of us do not even realize we are using it. This non verbal communication can be demonstrated through our many senses like body language, symbols or metaphors. As I continue to evolve as an artist, I am becoming more intune with this communication and I call it “Photo Language.”
Additionally, I am always telling stories through creative mediums such as photography, video and design. My latest venture is 3D Photography, poetry and hip hop music. I am working on a book idea/project as well as music. I am always trying to grow as an artist and progress in my knowledge.
My passion is working with marginalized youth and using art as a medium to empower them. I love to see youth build self-confidence and have a voice through art creation.
My style of visual communication is being a storyteller. My inspiration comes from the Holy Spirit.
