Meet the Team
Rahisha Bivens, Founder and CEO
Rahisha Bivens has been a part of the Connecticut Art Scene for over 8 years. She got her start in the Ct creative arts scene when she began modeling locally in fashion shows and for local designers. Upon, realizing the she wanted to help create the vision of fashion, she began pursuing a career as a fashion stylist and gained much success across the state of CT. She was quickly asked to host shows around CT and added that to her title as well. A year later, she also realized the connection between fashion and marketing and she started her own fashion media and marketing company to empower artists of all genres to have visibility and make a living from what they do. She started No Starving Artist to help empower artists to make a living off what they do. Having been a part of the arts scene in CT she realized that one thing had been missing and that is people outside of CT knowing and respecting what artists do here. She started No Starving Artist to create a platform, community and world where every artist thrives and makes a living off what they do. She enjoys, photography, creative directing, producing and in her spare time she manages the career of her daughter Desiree Robinson, who is a beautiful, sultry and gifted singer. She currently lives in New Haven's Historic District by the Quinnipiac River.
