Keisha Whatley / Custom Arts Studio
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Keisha Whatley lives by a simple artistic motto - “make things beautiful!”
She has been creating, especially painting, for most of her life. During challenging times, creative work helped her find healing and renewal.
She works with businesses and individual clients on a variety of creative projects. In 2019, she will serve an artist residency at Philadelphia’s Please Touch Museum for an exhibit titled America to Zanzibar: Muslim Cultures Near and Far. Her work has also been featured at The Colored Girls Museum in Philadelphia.
One of Keisha’s proudest accomplishments is her Women of Inspiration Project which features portraits of twelve African American women who have persevered and inspired others through their faith and strength.
