We had the good fortune of connecting with Indya “Icy” Wright and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Indya “Icy”, what do you attribute your success to?
Following my heart and trusting my instincts over compromising my values for money. I only take on projects & clients that inspire me. I’m also not afraid to say no… even if there’s a big budget. When you live solely by the dollar you end up losing.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been an artist in every way since birth. Nothing fulfills me more than creating. It’s my favorite form of expression. Finding ways to use my innate knack for making things beautiful in professional settings is what sets me apart. If wasn’t easy finding my way initially, but I learned that by trusting my Instincts I always make a way. I want people to know that while I wear a lot of professional hats… I am an artist first.
