Sharon Miller, professionally known as Pri the Honeydark, is an award winning hip-hop artist turned portrait photographer, visual artist and creative educator from Queens, New York.
It was through an introduction to the arts as a child that she began to realize her own possible greatness and used the arts as a means to navigate her childhood obstacles, such as poverty and homelessness. Pri’s early introduction to the arts would later transform into a plethora of multidisciplinary creative skills, including photography, carpentry, visual & fine arts, exhibition design, music production and performance.
Pri is a passionate believer in using her photography, and artistic practice for social change, with a heavy focus on marginalized communities. She founded an organization called The Creative Youth Society, where she teaches underrepresented NYC youth skills that empower them to seek careers within the creative industries. Pri also teaches visual arts and photography within the public school and non-profit sectors, and was recently named Sony Alpha Female for her social photo project, “The Creative Ambassadors”, where she photographed editorial style portraits of aspiring youth in underserved communities based on their creative career goals. The project was featured in Photoville NY, Click Magazine and on NY1 News.
