I’m a believer of, if you’re doing something good now, the future will just reveal itself.
I am so excited to bring you this conversation with the incredible, Aya Kakeda. I was introduced to Aya through Sara Varon and once I discovered her work, I couldn’t get enough. Aya has developed a style and story telling ability that will grab you and keep you wanting more and in this interview Aya and I dive deep into her development as an artist. From her early childhood, being surrounded by tradition to traveling halfway around the world and feeling like an alien on another planet, Aya talks all about her passion for creating things, what influenced her and how her inclined behavior of getting bored with things easily became one of her greatest assets.
This is a fantastic conversation and if you want to see more of Aya’s work you can check out the links down below.
This is a great one, episode 115 with Aya Kakeda.
