 Carina Ayiesha Brown, daughter of the beloved Eileen Callier, is a Transmedia Artist who views life as art and seeks to infuse it with love and passion. Her personal mission statement is “artistic inspiration from the inside out.” She’s been writing poetry since the age of 11 and began performing her poetry in high school. 

After graduating from Campbell High School in Smyrna Georgia, Carina attended Georgia State University and later transferred to California State University Dominguez Hills. She received her Bachelors in Art with a minor in dance, concurrently training as a diversity facilitator and a Domestic Violence and ADX counselor. She received her Master of Cosmetology certification at El Camino College In California.


      On campus at Dominguez, she had the privilege of experiencing a true “communiversity”  as a programming  member of the Multicultural Club. She's opened for Amiri Baraka and cosponsored events inviting Nikki Giovanni. She was also enriched by working as the youth arts director at Krst Unity Center of African Spiritual Science in Los Angeles, her home away from home. She is the CEO of Carina’s Studio, a private natural hair studio and boutique in Smyrna .  

She’s choreographed musical theatre productions at The Children’s School in Atlanta and launched a dance fitness and empowerment program called Africopia. She is joyfully married to Rod Brown, CEO of Native Comics. They have three children  Jhai (7) and Maya (3)  and Omari (2.5 months).
