Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeff Mincey.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I grew up in a single-family home, the youngest and only boy of four. Growing up I never had the confidence to express myself emotionally or artistically until I learned what being behind and in front of a camera can really do. My mom and close friends would always encourage me to do things and go for opportunities but being a kid who’s been bullied and lied to, you never know if you’re setting yourself up for failure (if you get what I’m trying to say). It took me awhile to understand that I could create so much with just my voice and look.
Please tell us about your art.
I am a Model haha it’s taken me a little to really grasp that, and photographer. Whether in front or behind the camera I just want to express the moment, pull out the pain and excitement from the eyes and body and share it with the world. My message has always been to never be afraid of your own true beauty, no matter what anyone says or thinks we are all unique in our own way embrace it.
Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
If it’s your passion don’t give up on it. Have a strong support system around you who will not let you give up on anything because you’ll want to throw that dream away because it may seem too hard with everything else going but don’t. Take time and work on your finances and use your free time to organize and learn to balance work/finance and Dream and when the time comes, you’ll know because you’ll jump head first in your blessing.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
