Ariane Cyusa Spreads Love Through Spoken Word

Article & photos by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

FRANKLIN, IN (September 4, 2018) – Ariane Cyusa is 27 years old, and she’s on a mission. It’s a mission to learn more about life, a mission to grow her craft, but above all else, it’s a mission to make the world a better place. She’s lived through far too much of a struggle for her young age as have most powerful women in the world today, but she doesn’t let life’s tricks stop her from spreading love to others.

Ariane is a poet with a plethora of talents, and recently she decided to take a big life step by cutting back on her “day job” to focus more on her artistry. Fortunately, though, as fate would have it, even the skills Cyusa learned in her trade as a nurse would help her on her way to fulfilling her dreams. She quickly learned of an opportunity to show all of her skills as a spoken word artist while still helping other with her healing abilities.

Ariane came across the Hickory Creek HealthCare Center at Franklin, and found that the residents would be more than pleased to see a live show by the talented performer. A lot of artists scoff at the notion of smaller venues and donating time, but Ariane welcomed the chance to give back some of her gifts. Despite her busy calendar she put the performance on her schedule, and planned a smashing set.

It was easy to see that the residents enjoyed Ariane’s performance as well as her company. Spoken word can often be therapeutic for both the poet and the audience, and it was no different at Hickory Creek. The listeners were calmed by the soothing delivery of the vivacious verbiage, yet still excited by the reminiscent tone that took many back to their youths. All were sad when the show came to an end, but Cyusa promised to come back another day soon to share her talents.


Ariane is a healer with a heart of gold and a glowing example of what young women should strive to be today. Her time at Hickory Creek is just a small example of the joy her presence brings to this world. Everyone has trials and tribulations in life, but it’s how one deals with them that matters, and Ariane doesn’t let the rough stuff define her. This profound literary artist’s work transcends far beyond any troubles of the past, and it’s obvious that Ariane will continue to use her art as a force of good for many moons to come.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
