We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaclayvious Emmanuel and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jaclayvious, why did you pursue a creative career?
Its all i know. Im not smart enough to be a doc or type on a computer fast enough to work corp jobs. Im pretty good at painting so why not be an artist.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
There’s not much to say about my art. Other than i hope people enjoy it and gain something from it mentally, spiritually, and physically. The thing that sets me apart is being who i am. Im a different human with different life skills and experience. Naturally I’ll be different. Idk. Got to to the position all on GOD. Not easy at all. Im still not where i wanna be professionally. I have way more work to do.
Iwant the world to know is to keep painting and making art everyday and dont give up on art. If you have ideas make them build them. Dont push it to the side.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The CuckoosNest Collective first second and last.
