Meet the artist...
At age five, I noticed my son getting good with freehand drawing.
As a person who has a passion for acrylic and charcoal painting, seeing this reignited my passion for being more intentional about spending time with my sons and allowing them to explore more in a creative art atmosphere.
My son continued to draw and educate himself using mixed media as he got older. His younger brother picked up the skill shortly after! Now we have a family of artistic painters and designers!
After my son's inquiry about selling his art, the rest is history!
I decided to ensure I continued cultivating my son's gift and skill to set him up for success in an area he has a passion.
Thus the birth of D & G Mixed Media, Art, and Design LLC.
The world of entrepreneurship and business can be intimidating.
My story starts with my young son, who developed a great skill for drawing. One day he inquired about the opportunity to sell his drawings and I informed him that he absolutely could sell his drawings, but that we would need to legitimize the business.
At that time, I realized my son was serious and I no longer wanted to be a statistic, a victim of my situation as a divorced, single mother with 2 children tackling a full-time job, obtaining a Ph.D., and facing limitations!
Now, my sons and I are managing partners of a custom apparel and mixed media design business for mothers and sons. Through this business I can teach my sons discipline, money management, networking, customer service and so much more to build our legacy.
I also realized, I not only wanted to build and leave a legacy for my sons, but I also want to encourage other mothers that may have a similar story that desire entrepreneurship.
