Art & Life with Lyric Everly

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lyric Everly.

Lyric, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
My artistic journey has taken me across many mediums. I grew up in Oregon and my parents always encouraged me to be creative. I started piano lessons and performing at age 5, I was writing and recording music as a teenager, and co-owned a branding agency in Austin, Texas by my mid-20s. After being actively involved in the songwriter scene in Nashville, I moved to LA and went to work in advertising, later becoming a Creative Consultant for Big Brothers Big Sisters (where I’ve also been a mentor for the last decade). Being that LA is a mecca for fun, creative side-hustles, I’ve worked as an actress, a model, and a professional fairy at enchanted tea parties. I’ve now gone full-entrepreneur, as a founding partner and CEO of an incredible creative agency in the Arts District called Thriver Creative.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’ve been specializing in Branding & Design for the last 12 years. I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies as well as mom & pop shops. I was drawn to this work because I love hearing about people’s dreams and transmuting them into the visual representation of “who they are + what they do.” It thrills me every day to breathe life into ideas.

Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities, and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
My advice for anyone struggling to focus on art due to financial concerns is to find ways to use your creative powers for the greater good; look for ways to serve and help other people thrive by creating for them with passion and love. The money will follow. So will joy.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Our new website for Thriver Creative will launch soon – you can sign up for announcements and open house events at www.thrivercreative.com

I also wrote and recorded a “whimsical pop” album called Pure Honey – you can find it on iTunes and on my artist website:www.LyricEverly.com
