Hi there! I’m LaTanja — an Illustrator and Lettering Artist based in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area and owner of Creative Pounds. I specialize in digital and mixed media art and design. I am fueled by my passion for architecture, nature, food, plants, self-care and encompassing my African American culture as inspiration for my art. I am an alumnus of Virginia Commonwealth University (go, Rams!) and love to spend time with my family, listen to music and craft as a hobby.

Creative Pounds is a creative studio that designs fun and unique stationery, apparel, and art prints inspired by African American culture. Our mission is to give people the power to love themselves, their community and people that look like them through art. The name, Creative Pounds, is a dedication to my daughter Logyn. She is a silent (yet not so silent) partner in the business. Logyn’s initials are L.B.S., the same letters used for the abbreviation for the word ‘pounds.’ With our quality products and services we strive to provide customers with “art and design weighted in creativity.”

I am always up for a creative challenge. With my passion for art and great attention to detail I strive to provide clients with quality products. My services include custom lettering and digital illustration for advertisements, brand collaborations and social media content. Contact me at creativepoundslbs@gmail.com and lets talk.

 I have had the pleasure to work with great clients and brands:  Roxiebstylin // Lotus Creation Consulting LLC // Kids for Culture™ // STEM Preschool
