Debbie “Yati” Garrett

Born and raised in Harlem, NY. I grew up in an area that was heavily surrounded by Jazz, Film, and Art. As I got older I got to work on many production sets in all three mediums and these things really shaped and influenced the very fabrics of the things I do today in Art. When I came to St. Petersburg to pursue my education at Eckerd College in 1996 I had no idea that I came to a city so full of art and culture.

As a first time filmmaker and established visual artist it has always been a dream of mine to craft a project that could infuse both. One that would include the colors and hues of life’s surroundings, canvassed by a powerful message.
