Kamisha Thomas is a Columbus, Ohio native who has been telling stories since grade school. Always an avid pupil of English, Literature & the Arts, her educational journey blossomed into conquests of knowledge in the areas of communication, media production and ironically, criminal justice. She also achieved unprecedented success while incarcerated in a state correctional facility where she wrote and directed her first short film, BANG!, as a part of the Pens to Pictures Project. While her primary medium is creative writing, and visual storytelling she utilizes her skills in photography, graphic design, painting, sketching, and zentangle doodles as a form of therapy for everyday mental health and to clear up the writer’s block. Currently in the post production phase of her second short film, Silence is Consent, Thomas divides her time between representing the Returning Artists Guild and her home based meditation jewelry business, Made by Mish.
