2014 SwatchRoom Salon Emerging Artist: Dominique Fierro

To get everyone revved up for ArtSee's latest collaboration with Hierarchy and SwatchRoom, we conducted a series of interviews with some of our favorite, participating local artists.

Artists chatted about what they're most looking forward to at the Salon Party, who inspires them, and all sorts of other insider tips on how they unwind, great spots in DC and so on.

The first artist we spoke with is Dominique Fierro, a photographer and designer. Fierros has a wide range of work, extending from high fashion photo shoots to fine art photography.

ArtSee: Since you've been at it for a while, do you have any words of wisdom for new artists?
Dominique Fierro:  Keep at it, nothing that’s worth it will come easily and you have to have a tough skin. It is critical in art no matter what you are doing to have patience and perseverance, the perfect shot can occur by pure accident or through painstaking time and preparation.

A.S: What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon when you're not working?
D.F: I love to go for brunch with my husband and tromp through the woods with him and my furry four legged son.  

A.S.: What're you most excited for at the Salon Party??
D.F: To see all the other talented artists around DC.  

Dominique's will be showing on Friday night at Hierarchy from 7pm-12am. To preview Dominque Fierro's work, visit her site here

The SwatchRoom Salon is a three-day celebration of local and emerging artists, designers, and collaborations and giving back.
