Kiralfy Kennion

Art has always been a part of me. I started dancing at age two, modeling and doing graphic design at 15, and doing makeup at 17. I eventually went to college where I majored in Communications/Media Production. There, I became even more immersed into art. I was such a free-spirited person that most people probably didn’t expect me to take that path. Read more>>

Bri Van Scotter

After graduating college with my degree in hand and the job, I thought I wanted. I quickly found out that the cubical life was not for me. It was then I took a part-time job in a restaurant while still working and it was there that I knew I had to pursue a career in the Culinary Arts. From then on I worked my way from hostess to pastry and every position in between. Read more>>


Everyday I motivate and inspire others to dig deeper into themselves. To truly live life and love with every essence of their being via my Instagram stories. My blog launches February 16, 2019. It is a platform not only for my poetry but others as well. I strongly believe that God has a reason for everything that happens under the sun so I’m just grateful to be here. Read more>>

Keon Berry

Berry Academy’s conception was initiated by a dream. Initially, I showed no interest because I was a Freshman in college seeking to live it up with no strings attached. I knew that doing something like this would require a lot of work and a lot of energy that I wasn’t interested in investing. One night, I stayed up because I couldn’t fall asleep and I began to draw the logo which became the first logo that we ever came out with. Read more>>

Kenya Brantley and Lori Duncan

Lori and Kenya met at a pasture sale that Lori was doing in 2012. A couple of conversations in, and they knew that they would have something special! From the very beginning, L&K Unscripted has always been about community and the people that make theirs so amazing! Lori and Kenya are wives, mom, entrepreneurs, and friends who always thrive to be as authentic as possible! Read more>>

Demetrius Collins

I am a self-taught artist diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. I started teaching myself how to draw around the age of six. The main shows I learned from were Dragonball Z, Animaniacs, Freakazoid, Transformers, Biker Mice From Mars, the list goes on. I would not have guessed that I would be creating and selling my art full time. Originally, I viewed art as a hobby, *Nothing more, nothing less.* Read more>>

Donte Miller

I didn’t know anything about being a college student when I arrived at Morehouse College in 2011. I adjusted to the transition a bit easier because my mom and I were literally in college together. Being a student at the same time as my mom gave me an automatic study partner. I didn’t really know too much about a lot of things, but as a kid, I remembered watching the Wall Street movie and thinking that I have no idea what they were talking about, but I love the way it sounds. Read more>>

Nigel Davis

Art is defined as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form. Coming from Historic South Atlanta, there wasn’t many artistic outlets in my environment. Becoming a Painter wasn’t tangible to me, it was a loose leaf idea, very far fetched from normal careers. Read more>>

Kendal Turner

I were often hard because I was unable to find a full-time job, but I knew that God told me to move so I had to stand firm on my faith and trust that God would provide. In three years I have been on several movie sets as a background actor. I have released my 5th book titled “The power of 22” and landed the opportunity to be on the BET black girls rock commercial. Moving to Atlanta was by far the best thing I could have ever done for my spiritual development, career, and my family. Read more>>

Thea Jones

A self, industry, and mentor taught musician and classically trained vocalist, Jones looks to the influences of jazz, soul, hip-hop, and folk for her inspiration in a hybrid genre that can only be described as SoulFolk. As a performer her entire life, some would describe her as a “natural” but those who know Jones best would say that she is an individual with a calling. Read more>>

Rory Walker and Kash Kerr

With all the upcoming young creatives, we felt that there was a need for a facility where they could hone and take charge of their craft. Starting in Miami in 2015, our company grew rapidly to the point where we were able to throw our own concert fittingly named, the Vivid Music Tour. In 2017, we decided to make Atlanta our new home. Read more>>

Darlene Felix

I decided to take a leap of faith and create this private oasis where my clients can come kick off their shoes, relax their feet, let their hair down (literally) and enjoy the one-on-one experience of their hair getting optimal care. My clients know that when they walk through my door, they can without a shadow of doubt leave behind the hustle and bustle of their busy and often, chaotic, lives. Read more>>

Cherante Walker

With each picture I took I fell even more in love with it because I was learning not only about taking pictures but also the technical side and how to edit them properly. When I learned the technical side, a whole new love blossomed of editing. That’s when I got into graphic design and from there I wanted to get better at so I watched hours and hours of YouTube videos until I got decent at my craft and was able to implement it into my photography. Read more>>
