The energy that radiated throughout the alleyway was unbelievable at this amazing pop-up event organized in part by Sherryl Muriente & Beju of Lejobart.
With the first beat of the drums we all knew we were in for a treat. At the opening reception, we got to hear from the artists as they spoke about their magnificent paintings and shared the rich history behind the movement. We learned that this was their first time in America and we felt their enthusiasm.
We mixed and mingled, tasted a sampling of African cuisine, had a sip of wine and then we danced….
Last weekend I completed a very special project at The Shops At Pembroke Gardens. I was commissioned to paint the very first of their 56 benches and trash receptacles located throughout the promenade of this amazing outdoor mall.
Relax in Paradise

The Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs Exhibition was founded in 2009. A collaboration between myself, Virginia Fifield and LeeAnna Yater. We took it upon ourselves to produce a professional high quality art exhibition in a public gallery; the three of us designed the concept and curated the first exhibition, complete with a catalogue to document the artists and their work.
Our mission was to launch the careers of it’s participating artists by mentoring and providing practical artistic experience and exposure for their artwork. The positive outcome of the first DBA exhibition persuaded us to continue this yearly event and promote our brand Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs.
