We had the good fortune of connecting with SHMU’AL YAHU and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi SHMU’AL, why did you pursue a creative career?
I pursued an Artistic career because of the gifts that YAHUAH gave to me. He gave me an eye and a vision to take an idea that a person has and to bring that idea to life.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I want the world to know that what ever gifts you have to use them to the fullest. Even if it seems that things aren’t working out, continue to push and strive to get where you wanna go. Because in the end you’ll never know what will happen if you give up.
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 enjoy the simple things in life. I would take downtown to see the many attractions the city has to offer. I would take them to the beach to enjoy the awesome lakefront. I would also take them to Super Chi Chi’s for some great jerk chicken and also the Jerk Taco Man. I would just show them how the simple things in life are more important than what people would make them seem.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to thank my creator YAHUAH for giving me the many gifts he has given me. Without him I would not be able to produce the kind of work I produce. He’s given me the ability to take something that’s in someone’s head and to visually bring it to life and make it a reality. All esteem and praises belong to the most high YAHUAH.
