Meet Erika Barratt, an artist with a strong yet subtle aesthetic that makes magic happen so seamlessly. She is a designer who makes handmade dolls, flowers, Her studio is on the same floor as kamau studios and we’ve become friends and occasional colleagues. This month, we got the opportunity to work together on a short story about her creative process which is aptly titled Portrait of An Heirloom.
Here are some other images from our story which included a portrait session with her dolls.

Lacresha Berry is someone i had the pleasure to meet a little over a year ago. She came to the studio to help kick off the Black Gotham Experience relaunch in 2013 and was gifted with a photo shoot since she tore down the mic. Since then, she has been back for more studio sessions, a music video project, and has referred three new clients including her extra cool mother. Check out the video i shot and edited for Ms. Berry. Very fun inspiring song.
Lacresha AKA Berry & Co. has a show coming up in November, a work titled Brown Girl Blue Grass.
November 21st and 22nd | Dwyer Cultural Center | 268 St. Nicholas Ave | 7:30pm
