WHO ARE YOU :My name is Whitney Frederick. Im an expressionist, creative, bush-woman and visionary.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY MAKES YOU A FANM DJANM :What makes me a Fanm Djanm is my ability to love and fully be comfortable with myself living in, and only in, my truth especially through trying times .
AS A CREATIVE, COULD YOU SPEAK A LITTLE MORE ABOUT WHERE YOUR CREATIVE INSPIRATION OFTEN COMES FROM:A lot of my inspiration sparks from my imagination - I love getting lost in my thoughts. I reality, my inspiration never really comes from the same place, sometimes it sparks from random conversations with friends or even strangers, a moment in self care or when I’m basking in music. I think overall my inspiration always transcends in moments when I’m happy or overwhelmed with joy in whatever space or surrounding I’m currently in.
FOR THE IMAGE YOU CREATED, THAT INVOLVED A PLETHORA (lol) OF FANM DJANM DOUBLE-SIDED HEADBANDS, YOU SPOKE OF PERSISTENCE THROUGH THE CREATIVE PROCESS, IN REFLECTING ON THESE IMAGES/THIS MOMENT AGAIN IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT STOOD OUT TO YOU ABOUT CREATIVE PROCESS:
I think this goes back to inspiration. I remember on this day I was not even in the mood to shoot content on a Sunday but I had promised a friend and so I wanted to follow through. I think 30 mins into the shoot, my mood changed because it was such a good feeling to see my friend in action bringing her thoughts to life despite some challenges. She pushed through and that shifted my energy , soon after the idea manifested and I executed!
