The Founder

Writer, Speaker, Artist and Businesswoman, LaTanya Renee Quinn is a native of Detroit, MI and currently calls Atlanta, GA home.  She accepted Christ as her savior at the tender age of seven. As a child she grew up in a Christian home, witnessing her Father George Quinn deliver the sermons on every second Sunday at Bible Community Baptist Church, as an Minister.

By the time she was nineteen and twenty she was asked to deliver two Women’s Day Sermons to the congregation. She did this like a natural. She prepared her teachings and delivered the word clearly, powerfully and boldly. Her most memorable was, “Being an Obedient Hearer and Doer of the Word.” It was then that LaTanya realized she had a gift for speaking and ministering. Out of fear, as many do, she ran far from it and made her own plans.

Thereafter, she spent years with one foot in and one foot out of a worldly lifestyle.With a deep love for business and entrepreneurship; ministry and a commitment to living by the “good book” was not in her plans.  Her plans included pursuing a career as a songwriter and a magazine publisher.

At age twenty-six, she launched Industry Status Magazine on faith with a talented team and contributors. The title went national on newsstands and soon, the title was well known within the Atlanta Entertainment Circle. Industry Status eventually folded due to lack of capital.

After a failed magazine and later a devastating and short-lived marriage, life seemed hopeless. After divorce and achieving a degree of financial success, she was left with bad credit and nearly broke.  After years in the valley going through many trials and tribulations, God put a new song in her heart.  Now she is using her gifts for the Kingdom. In 2011, she opened Art by LaTanya Renee, Inc. an online art gallery, in which she creates and sells her original modern abstract paintings.

LaTanya is thirty-seven years old and is the third sibling out of two sisters and one brother. She has a great relationship with her parents George and Lynette Quinn and is passionate about sharing her testimony and ministry with others.
