"to me a great artist is one that interrupts your reality

one whose work makes you think, or transcend thinking all together" - debra cartwright

i've always admired debra

her undeniable talent is effortless

and she's got a contagious passion for what she does.

we got together on a sunny saturday morning

at her harlem apartment

and with snacks, music and good conversation

i was able to capture her creative process
