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

Hi Klayne, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I believe that art can bring so much healing to the world. I think art helps us to find the beauty in the middle of all the chaos. It remind us how magical and rare life is. I was always a very curious person and always felt the need to express myself in a different way. I guess making art is the best way I found to do that.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
When it comes to my work, I don’t really like to label myself. I’m just creating the art I wanna see in the world. I’m an artist, a creative soul, and most of the time I use a camera as a tool to express myself through photography and films. I also love sharing what i know with other people, so I teach. I’m very passionate about what I do because I get to connect with people.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love going to Douceur the France. It’s a french bakery in Marietta. And I also love going to the brazilian restaurants in town!

I would also recommend going to see some art in Atlanta and go hiking.
