Art of Presentations props

My Art of Presentations work has been keeping me pretty busy.  I appreciate the fact that much of this work allows me to use my creativity.

Today I would like to share with a snipet of the work that I did for the current March issue of UMOJA magazine.  In honor of Women’s History Month the magazine has two feature articles.  I had the honor and pleasure to work on both.

The first presentation is one of the banners used for the Women of Faith feature issue:

Next, is the Headline banner used for the other feature article Women in Science

The last is my ad for AABBA’s Business Weekend Retreat which appears on the back cover.

Thank you


There is no perfect time to start living your dreams

My Art of Presentations (AOP) business is what pays the bills and this month I have had the honor and the pleasure to do an ad for the Mayor and a introduction page for the February issue of UMOJA magazine for  Black History Month.

I really enjoy designing ads (which I do on my MAC laptop & I have no special software) and the incredible thing about this is I am pretty much self-taught.

So for all of you putting off your dreams or future because you think you are not ready or for the “perfect” time, or situation, I say “It is better to try and fail than to never try at all.”    Enjoy


Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes of a photo shoot.

I had the honor to coordinate a photo shoot for UMOJA magazine’s feature article on Women in Faith.  We gathered, from various churches, most of the Black WOMEN ministers in Madison, WI. This is the first time that they had been gathered in one location.

Watching their interactions and the feeling the accompanying atmosphere was amazing.  This has been my favorite shoot.
