Interview With YouTube Show “Cooking It Up” Star Stacia Gates! (@ArtQuench)
We recently had the chance to chat with Stacia Gates about creating Art Quench Magazine, working on “Cooking It Up,” upcoming projects and more.
- What was your inspiration behind to create Art Quench Magazine?
I was originally inspired by a very good friend of mine who has now passed but during his life had created a celebrity magazine that focused on an enlightening zone to inspire, motivate and inform you for a more effective and fulfilling life. I became his partner in helping him with the most amazing interviews. I was impressed with the way he was devoted to bringing inspiration into others lives. I soon began to have my own thoughts on another way to do this as I realized I have been inspiring those around me my whole life. I feel like I am here to do exactly that. Life is short and when you see clearly what you are meant to do you just do it, or at least in my case that’s how it worked. As an artist it is my love of art in all forms that has brought me to this place. I have created ArtQuenchMagazine.com as a platform for the best creators in the world to show their work. The goal has always been to share the creative happenings with the world in hope of inspiring us all.
- What kinds of content does the magazine contain?
AQM focuses on the creators of the world, everything from inspiring entertainment news to the latest innovative experience.
- What do you think makes it unique?
AQM shares the real back stories of the creators featured. We give a deeper look into the motivation of each “Featured Artist” which in turn gives inspiration to our readers to continue on their own creative journeys.
- How did you get involved with the YouTube show Cooking It Up?
Although I am very involved with AQM I have a what you might call a “bucket list” of things I want to accomplish in my lifetime. One of my passions is cooking. I understand that life can be very busy and many people could use a little help with quick and easy ways to put together a family meal or dishes for entertaining so “Cooking it Up with Host Stacia Gates” was born.
- What is the show about?
“Cooking it Up with Host Stacia Gates” is focused on sharing tips on how to plate a quick meal to look like a professional did it. The show also includes cooking up tasty meals in a short amount of time with a fun and creative style.
- Have you had a favorite episode to film?
I really have had the best time when things go a little goofy, like the “Sunday Brunch” episode when the 1st egg went wrong and the wind decided to come into play. I love to share how things can go in real life and LoL !
- What has the fan reaction been like to the show?
The show is so new that I am just beginning to see some reaction and it is all positive. The comments are very supportive and people seem to be enjoying my goofy side.
- What is it like knowing that you’re able to use your platforms for good?
I feel very lucky and very humbled to have been able to do what I love and being a helpmate to others through the platform I have created hopefully will mean that just maybe I will have left an inspirational message to those who are in need of one.
- Are you currently working on any other projects fans can look forward to?
My creative self in its prime form at this time of my life and there are many things to come. I will continue to be involved with AQM and “Cooking it Up with Host Stacia Gates”, but I can tell you that I am currently working on something that involves ArtQuench Productions.
