Recognizing The Vision

In art the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can inspire.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

The world and our ability to perceive it depends on two very important things; recognition and our response to what we're able to recognize. Mind you, how much or how little our minds enable us varies. Some of us are athletic, artistic, or creative while others may be intelligent, literary, or charasmatic to name a few, resulting in a myriad of different gifts, talents and abilities to make us special in our own way.

Recognizing the brillance and at a very young age in her creative, artistic, and success driven abilities is Laydee Twisted of New York. Her ability to take ideas and maniuplate them in to works of art isn't anything short of remarkable.

With thoughts about her abilities and what the future holds for her, check out what Laydee Twisted has to share with Why Blue Matters.

[As Told To Why Blue Matters]

What do you like most about being creative?

The best thing about being creative would be that people actually think Iam. Viewers see my work as creative or being creative, I see it as output, as my view of a someone's idea.

How long have you been involved?

I started designing when I was about nine years old. When I turned fifthteen I started a company under the name 'KK Productions'. Once I was eighteen I wanted to change my image to something that reflects and represents me, I changed the company name to Twisted Inkk.

How important are relationships and credibility in what you do?

Relationships and credibility are important for so many reasons, as a designer I get a lot of work from acquaintances and friends of friends, having a good reputation with these people allows my business' reputation to build on its own. Having a relationship with a client is a powerful tool to have when designing for them, it helps you understand what they want the final product to look like.

What inspires and motivates you?

The one person who motivates me would have to be Kishez, without her I'd be lost on this. She pushes me to do what I have to do to better myself and career. As far as inspiration, my favorite 'The Negotiator', IanDesigns, the Joker. All very good artists you should also check out.

What would you do if you weren't involved in what you were doing currently?

I don't know what I would do, I planned my life success on something that was purely accidental. I've been doing this since I was nine its apart of my identity to create things. If I would have to choose I would want to be a chef, something else I would like to pursue in my lifetime.

Where do you see yourself five years from now?

Owning my own business(es), sitting paid. I see myself having good exposure for my talent, a very good clientele base. Five years is plenty of time to expand on my abilities and exposure, I look forward to whatever opportunities may come in the future.

Any future projects?

I will be doing graphic and web pages for KishezJuice, UrbanGlam,WeBleedHipHop, A lot of indie artist from my neighborhood (you know it’s all about the streets) and much more. Just stayed tuned to

What kind of impact would you like to leave with your artistic ability?

I think the biggest impact I would want to make is letting people to know that you don't have to go to school or be taught professionally to learn and have passion about something. Of course education is a great foundation but you can stand strong and tall on your own talent.

Any advice for those looking to pursue their art endeavors?

Grab inspiration from other designers but don't imitate their work.Creativity and originality is key to being a designer.
