About Us

I believe everyone is born with special gifts whether in music, story telling or the ability to teach others. Down to Earth Media is about giving aspiring artists the opportunity to share their unique talents with others. Most of the participants involved within this website are professionals in other areas; often, they are not able to dedicate themselves totally to pursuing their true artistic dreams. This is why the artistic materials within this website are unique and diverse to say the least. The natural talent of many of these artists is raw and distinct and is reflected within their materials. It is about their imagination, creativity and most importantly the sincerity of their art.

The role that Down to Earth Media plays is in offering talented artists an avenue to market and showcase their artistic materials. I hope Down to Earth media will become the site that can open doors of opportunity for many of these artists.
