We had the good fortune of connecting with Bianca Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bianca, why did you pursue a creative career?
Throughout the entirety of my life I have always felt that a creative career was meant for me. Starting at about 3 years old was when I was interested in drawing and painting. Luckily I had family that could support my interest which made the arts easier to pursue, even when I ended up changing mediums throughout the years.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
First and foremost I just want to say that I am very fortunate to have a job that allows me to explore my creative field as well as be innovative about how I use my skills. Growing up I was interested in creating scores for films but upon realizing that that would have required me to be a composer I tried to find the closest way to get to that goal without having to switch what my major in college was entirely. With what I do now they’ve asked me to start doing soundscapes for the spaces I worked in, which was more or less what I was trying to do when I went to school. Pushing pass the limitations of what school had taught me was the biggest obstacle because I had to find out that I was able to have a prosperous career in my field and I didn’t have to start out taking jobs where I was not compensated equally with my skills.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I think one of the most interesting places to go to would be the museums, specifically pertaining to art. The dma, The Crow, and Kimball are the most well known in the area but there are plenty of other museums to go to that are equally and if not more interesting. Some prime examples are Dallas contemporary, and pencil on paper gallery. Now if you’re looking to listen to music just going to main Street in deep ellum gives you access to venues that are constantly playing music or if you want something more curated you could go to the factory. Then in terms of eating anywhere really in the Bishop arts district would be good.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The person I want to dedicate my shout out to is most definitely my mom. When I was younger she told me that as long as I gave something my 100% that she would be behind me. She is held true to that statement and I will always be thankful.
