Today we’d like to introduce you to Dre – TimeOfDre.
Dre, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
As a former pastry chef, everyone asks me how I got into social media and software, and the answer is always the same – that it was truly by accident! I hadn’t ever considered a career as a foodie or an Instagram Expert, but through years of working with clients professionally, I finally decided to create my own account and showcase my interests as well.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
As a content creator, I am mastering the art of storytelling through visuals and carefully crafted words. While content can take many forms, I am trying to inspire other people that want to turn their personal brand into a business without seeing it as a mountain they can’t climb. The truth is, being yourself is usually the best groundfloor for creating an awesome business! While my photos range from food, fashion to travel, the message is always the same – being you will ALWAYS be cool.
Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
I believe that it has become easier to share our passions with others than ever before, but it is a poor mindset that holds us back. Comparison is the thief of joy, and modern-day connections make it easier for us to see what we’re up against. Reminding yourself that you are in a class all your own based upon your unique skills and talents is key to maintaining a positive attitude.
I see cities celebrating the same artists multiple times rather than creating a wider connection even with the small folks. I would love cities to explore the lesser known creators and giving them a platform to shine!
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
