EPISODE FORTY: in conversation with Atiya Jones

Marlee interviews Atiya Jones, a traveler, a super-nice person, and newly claimed artist. She is actively taking ownership of the title of Visual Artist, and her artwork in any medium focuses on human connections, why we seek them, and how we make them. Atiya was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and speaks to the disconnection she feels from her hometown after gentrification; how she can’t afford to be there and be happy, and is planning a move to Pittsburgh. Atiya and Marlee have some real talk about break-ups and being your own sweetheart, practicing yoga to step out of depression, self-care rituals, and how Atiya makes art and where it is going.Words of wisdom:“I've been waiting for some unicorn to come in, and rescue me, and make moves with me.

And secrets are so useless.”Projects at Have Company:Atiya spent time exploring Grand Rapids
