Bios

ColorATL

ColorATL, Atlanta’s adult coloring book, combines the power of creative activity with the thriving art culture of Atlanta to benefit those in difficult circumstances. Not only does ColorATL offer a deeper, more interactive look into Atlanta’s artists, but they believe creative activity has the ability to decrease stress, anxiety, and despair - and cultivate peace, joy, and hope. ColorATL strives to unify our city through creativity by workshops, events, and through our 1:1 model - for every book sold, one is given to a person facing hardship at local partnering organizations. William Massey, Amber Guinn, and Connor Dwyer began organizing this project in Spring of 2016 and released ColorATL Volume 1 in October.

James Cramer

James Cramer moved to Atlanta from LA 2 years ago and has been learning about the craft of bartending ever since. With no bartending experience whatsoever upon arrival to Atlanta, James began working at Biltong Bar in Ponce City Market. Very quickly James began to learn about the craft of making cocktails and is now the Head Bartender and is responsible for making signature cocktails for the menu.

She has exhibited her work and murals in multiple galleries and events throughout the United States and internationally.
