Interview with Lawrence David Herman

Interview with Lawrence David Herman

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Aside from the hopelessness and emptiness that COVID brought along, I always had an inclination towards arts and I felt like I best expressed myself through it because it didn’t need many words. It just so happened that I could properly allot time to curate a space for myself only happened in the last year or two.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I haven’t spent nearly the amount of time that is necessary, but I do know that I’ve found a haven in art for a long time and knowing yourself and not losing your purpose helps keep your creativity come with a steady flow and have your work stay genuine and true to yourself.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Just the people around me like my friends and family who always appreciated my attempts at expressing myself and my love for all forms of art. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

One day, I hope to have a platform big enough to encourage people to be themselves and to be their art. Encapsulate their existence into music, films, paintings, anything that preserves a part of them forever.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.” – Danny Kaye.

I truly believe that the more you express yourself through tangible modes of art, you’ll find more purpose in the simple act of living, and who knows? You might make an impact on the world by how smoothly you produce a piece of work that represents you.
