We had the good fortune of connecting with Marcus A. Carr and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marcus, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I chose to pursue a career in the arts because it brings me unrivaled fulfillment. I feel most alive when I am creating.

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.
My goal is to create thought-provoking work that inspires others, and it brings me joy when that has been accomplished. I also want people to know that they can. What ever it is that they want to do–they can, despite perceived limitations. My journey has been wrought with uncertainty, yet laced with fulfillment. I’ve learned that I am where I am supposed to be, and how I am supposed to be here. As long as I have breath, I am not finished.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to Ms. Tina Spears!
