We had the good fortune of connecting with Dominique Turner-Rambo and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dominique, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking is important, because you’re not going to always take the traditional route, and you’re not always going to know what’s on the other side unless you jump. College isn’t for everybody. 9 to 5s isn’t for everybody. It’s okay to take new routes, find new things, and venture into your purpose, and doing what you love to do.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The Journey: Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy, but overall it’s the most amazing thing that I’ve ever done in my life. Working for FGIII Fine Art Productions as an Art Coordinator, is something that I am most proud of, because it’s the first time that I took a real risk in life, and I didn’t take the original route that I had planned for.
I consider my artwork to be conversation pieces, and it’s all in the detail. For instance, creating a really big series like my 30 Rose Collection it is a perfect balance between artwork and marketing. It creates memories of love, and something you can always relate to, feel, and understand.
I created a series of custom 1 of 1 Fedora hats, baseball caps, and shoes, and this all falls under unisex. All of my pieces on the fashion side are literally moving works of art. Fashion is about setting the tone. This is something you find yourself doing everyday, not realizing how important it is to your life. These pieces speak for themselves.
There’s a beauty of mixing romance and art, because they already go hand-in-hand to be a gift to others, creating permanent memories to stand the test of times, and never leaving things mundane. You can see the patience in it. Everything about what I do is almost like I’m shooting to be the Casa Nova of art, like the modern day R&B.
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?

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My two mentors, Frank Garcia III and Jackson The Brand for advancing my art and critiquing my craft as an artist. They taught me how to maneuver around certain rooms with public figures, how to network, and be confident in who I am. Also, want to thank those who work behind the scenes, family and friends, [too many to name]. So far in my life, I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish a lot of things without the company of those around me that can literally see my blind spots and vice versa.
