She is a true Renaissance woman, seamlessly fusing disco, pop, house, hip hop, and R&B. Quiana's diverse approach to turntables elevates the DJ game and demonstrates her genuine artistic talent.Before becoming a DJ, Quiana worked in fashion and design. She has worked with some of the world's most famous brands, including Mulberry and Neiman Marcus, as well as Tiffany & Co. and American Express. Quiana is in high demand as an artist, due to her rockstar persona and raw musical abilities.

Quiana is an accomplished artist in addition to her work as a DJ. During Quiana's cancer treatment, she discovered peace and happiness in art. "Sisters," one of Quiana's first pieces, depicts the unwavering love she received from the women in her life while she was in remission from cancer. Quiana's work has been shown at Art Basel Miami and the Scope New York Art Fair. She has since partnered with brands such as Neiman Marcus and Adidas, among others.

Quiana is a cultural force to be reckoned with who is more than just a DJ and an artist. Her style and coolness are two of her most valuable assets as a social media influencer today.

In addition to her demanding performance schedule and blossoming art career, Quiana believes in using her craft for good.
