BRAY, PROFESSIONAL ARTIST AND EDUCATOR
How did you get started?
I have always been a horror fan and LOVE scary movies. One day I was watching the movie Thirteen ghosts behind the scenes footage. I awed at how they put the different ghosts/ characters together.
I can’t remember whether I said it out loud or to my sister who was watching with me at the time, but I said “ I WANT TO DO THAT!” and next thing I know I was doing my research and my family was helping me move 1000 miles away.
Funny enough because of my love of horror I had absolutely no interest in anything beauty. I went to school and quickly realized I had a Niche for it all and I was skilled in combining genres which got me into the main thing I have been noticed for, high fashion avant- garde. During and after school I was at a very low point mentally. I had no family in the area, was in a toxic environment, and was so broke lint didn’t even want to be in my pocket. I knew I couldn’t waste all the money, time, and effort that was put forth to get me to that point, so I hit the ground running.
I began to do sooo much trade work, which I quickly found out wasn’t always a good thing. But I networked and made connections and lasting friendships that have helped me grow and gain the opportunities that I have been given throughout the years. And here I am in Central Florida, I have been based out of the Orlando area for 9 years.
