"Tonza DeBerry is a native of Holly Springs, Ms who has resided in the Jackson/Ridgeland, Ms area all of her adult life. She began dabbling with acrylics, creating small wall art & other home decor in 2013; but didn't become serious about painting until 2020. She considers herself as being "Spirit-led" rather than "Self-taught." She knows that her ability to paint comes from One Who is greater than herself and she is forever grateful that Jesus chose her as the vessel through which the creativity is expressed. Her canvas works & artprint notecards have been displayed & sold at Mississippi Farmers Market & other MS arts & crafts shows. She currently paints from home, with dreams of owning her own studio one day."
The Little Yellow Building is the creative art studio of Mississippi artist Derek Covington Smith. TLYB was established in 2018 to help grow and promote visual art in the state through opportunity, exposure, and education.
