Atlanta, Georgia based model, Deyanna Denyse has been trailblazing a path of her own in the field of Art modeling since 2017. Originally a yoga instructor, Deyanna stumbled upon the arts as a form of solace and self discovery during a time of hardship.
With the collaboration of other artists, such as: Kevin Williams, Euguen Bryd, and many photographers, she is expanding the narrative of Art modeling in the African American diaspora. Using herself as the muse, photography and videography has been the medium of choice. Published in Vogue Italia, Iconic Artist Magazine and featured in many Art Exhibitions; she has been seen across the globe. Interviews by Studio Noize podcast and Voyage Atlanta (among other platforms) Deyanna has had the opportunity to share her story and passion to inspire others to follow a dream of their own.
Although Art modeling has been the main focus, Deyanna wear many hats in the creative realm. As a creative director, she has also created mind boggling visuals with intentions to shift the masses into higher levels of consciousness. Balancing work and play, Deyanna finds herself lost in poetry, yoga, and cooking vegan meals for family and friends.
