Listen to Grela Orihuela, Maggy Cuesta, and Gabrielle Neuman along with artists Gavin Perry, Cristina Lei Rodriguez, Beatriz Monteavaro, and Miami newcomer Joyce Billet.

Art & Company

Alette always has a great idea that she pursues and accomplishes with great success! This podcast of her art circle is a genius premise that serves up the myriad of Miami and beyond personaities .."in their own words".

Art, Creativity, Miami, and more

Great takes and voices from around the art world, and what it took them to get where they are today.

Great Conversational Style

Alette uses a great term to describe the conversational style of the podcast in the first episode, "sobre la mesa." That's exactly what this is...a great conversation with artists over lunch. I love the diverse and conversational format and can't wait to listen to more.
