Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Our adventure with JJ Art and Design Productions has been smooth and fulfilled with amazing experiences. It has had some bumps on the road. As in every story, there have been protagonists, and antagonists. So far it has been a wonderful experience. Central Florida is our home, and we are grateful for the opportunities that we have had along the way.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
JJ Art and Design Productions has focused on promoting art, and sharing stories. Helping others discover their artist within has been our goal.

We do art workshops and produce content that touches souls, and emotions. We also enjoy creating. Every day is an opportunity to share our talent. To share with others our knowledge and expertise.

We are very thankful for all the people that have been part of our story. We are constantly working on a giant jigsaw puzzle where every piece fits perfectly with the story that we are telling, and with the message that we want to convey.

We are very proud of where we are now. We are always looking to grow.

When analyzing what sets us apart from others, we found it a very difficult question to respond to. We all have something that makes us unique and special.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
We both have the perfect combination. Even though we both share a passion for visual arts and the world of entertainment, we see things from different perspectives. In the end, art in every form is subjective, and it is in the eye of the beholder.

One (JJ) has the talent to tell stories on a canvas, using colors, and paintbrushes, while the other (Jose) has the talent to create stories and share them with his voice.

Success is a relative concept. Being able to share our passion, and create new things every day makes us already successful.
