Name: Janessa Jenkins
(Artist, entrepenur, freelance graphic designer)
Bio: I am a St. Louis, MO native inspired by interesting faces and people I see around my city. I started drawing at a very young age. My dad would make me draw cartoons and comic book characters to sharpen my eye. Once I entered high school at Hazelwood Central I had a group of amazing teachers that pushed me toward mastering my skills. I took as many art classes I could and entered plenty of art shows. I would have private tutoring sessions during Homeroom just to learn how to become a better artist. By senior year I decided I would go to college at Southeast Missouri State University to study graphic design. While in college I learned how to hustle. I sold hand drawn portraits out of my dorm room, made all of the flyers for the NPHC Greek events at SEMO and all over Missouri. I eventually dubbed myself ColorTripz and began to build my brand as an artist. Art is in my core I couldn't see myself doing anything else. I am inspired by the faces I see, the graffiti and the beauty in the decay of my city. St. Louis, it raises us to grow and HuSTLe with an impact. I've made a promise to myself and my family that I will do exactly that. ColorTripz- Experience the vibe. Embrace the culture.
Name: Keysha B

I started painting 8 years ago because I had to take art as a high school requirement and I fell in love with the feeling of expressing myself through painting. I specialize in mixed media art and cartoons. I also give art lessons and throw community and night life events involving art and finding your creativity. One of my major goals as an artist is once I graduate, finding ways to make art therapy for others. I firmly believe creative expression is a way to release anything that may be building up inside and ground you to see things more clearly, kind of like writing in a journal but with pictures.

If Marilyn Manson & Erykah Badu had a Daughter it Would be me. (: My sound is two star crossed emo lovers fighting to be with each other but desperately trying to commit a beautiful suicide.Picture your self at a funeral but your summoning a woman from the dead with your local Witch doctor, candles are lit in her memory and black rose petals are laid for her remembrance. Then you hear deadly enchanted vocals ... Welcome to my funeral *starts singing* It’s Hell I love to call home. I suck at jokes, my jokes go from trying to be funny to sounding depressing I take a shot of tequila while I’m on stage, tequila is my drink. Just be prepared to be happily in your feelings and possible call your ex during my set and they don’t answer but calls you back later and you don’t answer 😌 Xoxo Emo Hoe

(artist, sculptor, entrepreneur)
BIO:“Gooch Art” isn’t just the brand or logo of my art, it is my story. To some people art is just a hobby, to others it may be painting the most popular style to make a quick buck, but for me my art is not only an escape, but it’s a blank page for me because I can create what I feel, what I think, and what I love. I make art to project the things going on within my heart, or within the world. I want to be remembered for something more meaningful than painting a flower, or an animal. The point of my art is to deliver a message that most people wouldn’t want to verbally deliver. I am very passionate about my art because it is my dream.
