We had the good fortune of connecting with The Rutledge sisters and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi The Rutledge sisters, why did you pursue a creative career?
I chose a creative career because it was something that I always enjoyed, and it was something I got to do with my sister. -Jasmin I chose a creative career because even from a young age I really enjoyed preforming and creating things to share with people, so it just felt like a natural fit for me. -Jaylin

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
One of the things we’re proud of is our growth as artists. And how far we’ve come since we first started. We got to where we are professionally by putting in a lot of long hours and hard work. It was not easy at all, there were quite a few times when neither of us really wanted to do it any more. But taking a step back to refocus and remember how much we love what we do always helps. One lesson we learned along the way was to come prepared, because plans change all the time and being prepared to take on more than one role is important and this industry.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Places to eat\drink- Coffee by the hand, Sublime doughnuts, Smallcakes, Busy Bee’s , Red Robin’s Places to hangout- Mall of Georgia, Piedmont Park, Skate-a-long usa, Atlantic station, Legoland, The Georgia aquarium In our opinion,The gwinnett county fair. It was so much fun to attend and we can’t wait to go next year.
