MAE EDWARDS is a Multi-Media Mixologist. Her creative endeavors blend her musical compositions and performances with the visual mediums of video and literature. MAE’s philosophy towards art remains dedicated to realizing there’s little separation of expression, from one art form to the other. The path of the artist is to expand our awareness, helping us to see colors in a musical phrase and to help us hear an emotion musically, so as to elevate a scene on your screen. The job of an artist is to FEEL and then to share with others that feeling through our artistry. And by doing so, the artist uplifts society, helping one another feel less alone.
