As a model, April met with many names within the industry, locally. Through her networking, she was able to note the many talents that her home of Bakersfield possessed. From photographers, to models, and fine artists, she knew that there was a narrative to be told. In 2015, she created The Local Artistry (TLA) to express and expose the talent and the faces attached. She hopes to build TLA into a business and launch herself into the world of journalism.
