If you’re looking for something new to listen to this weekend, check out the latest episode of my podcast, Meraki Mentors, which features an interview with visual artist Shanina Dionna!
In this episode, you’ll meet visual artist Shanina Dionna, a Pennsylvania-based painter who is also an arts education and mental health advocate. Through her Embryo series, Shanina spreads a message of hope and empowerment and recently received a TDC (The Dean Collection) grant, sponsored by Swizz Beatz & Alicia Keys.
“If you’re passionate about it, and you’re consistent, good things will manifest for you.” It’s a belief that Shanina is living fully. We talk about her life as a full-time freelance artist, and her role in the Philadelphia arts community. Shanina also sheds life on the business of being an artist and the importance of a business plan.
Shanina’s story is inspiring both personally and artistically, as you’ll hear in this episode, and her profound message to artists about purpose, acknowledgment and wellbeing is absolutely priceless.
As always, this episode features the following music: Aspire by Scott Holmes, and Purple Light by Blue Dot Sessions.
