About Our Featured Guest:

Mrs. Jerri Danyelle Brown (Jerri B) is the founder of All Things CREATIV (ATC), an artistic platform that provides inspiring artwork, novelties, services, and programs.  Jerri is an Artist, Designer, and Creative Consultant.  She has been creating for over 20 years.  She has hosted solo exhibitions, published artistic books and literary works, and launched creative product lines.  Her artwork illustrates the endearing moments of inter-generational bonds and inspirational concepts, and has been referred to as Narrative Art.  Jerri works in a variety of media including acrylic, pastels, charcoal, block print, photography, textiles, ceramics, and graphic design.  She strives to trigger feelings of warmth and familiarity from the viewer.

At age 37, Jerri has been married for sixteen years and is the mother of six children.  In addition to her roles as a wife and mother, Jerri is also an active Community Advocate and Minister.  She has hosted and participated in several grassroots programs to encourage youth in the area of Art.  Jerri believes that Art is therapeutic, and she has facilitated creative sessions at women's gatherings and retreats as a "de-stresser."
 
Jerri's love for art and creating goes as far back as childhood in St.Louis, Mo.; though, she credits her High School Art teacher in Atlanta, Ga as being the source of inspiration to pursue Art beyond a leisure pass time.  After high school, Jerri went on to study Interior Design at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) for two years.  At age 20, she gave birth to her first child, and a year later, she married.  Jerri gained a son through marriage, and gave birth to four more children.  And while Art was always present in her life, cultivating her blended family of eight became priority.  Jerri recently completed her Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art at Georgia State University, seventeen years after starting the college journey at SCAD.
