In Where You Should Be Spending Your Money, we showcase the various businesses available in our community that we can support to inspire you to cycle your very important and all-powerful dollar amongst people that look like you and have YOU in mind. This week, we highlight MOSAIC Moon.
I was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens. I came to Atlanta as an adult and I’ve made it home. I have a daughter, who is also a part of MOSAIC Moon.
IHTG: What motivated you to start this business?
My husband losing his battle with Brain Cancer, and challenging me to “do what I say, I’m going to do” and “to go all of the way”. After he passed my sisters took me to a studio to paint. I realized that when I painted I didn’t think about my pain or my problems. I thought that other people in our communities could benefit from the same experiences.
IHTG: Tell us about your business (what product or service do you offer, your typical customer, etc.)
MOSAIC is an acronym. It stands for Maintaining, the Onus of Synergy, Authenticity, and Independence in our Communities. Moon was my late husband’s nickname. We are a mobile PopUp Painting Experience. We bring everything one would need to have a fun Paint Party and create great art. We are known for our professionalism, punctuality, creativity, and sense of humor. We’re unique because we teach several pieces of art at the same time. Everyone can paint what they want to, we have a plethora of art to choose from. No artistic ability is required. We are there for our painters every step of the way. The majority of our painters(87%)are women, but once a man is in front of a canvas, they’re hooked.
IHTG: How does your business give back to the community?
We volunteer with Seniors that have challenges with their memory. Painting helps with cognitive skills in addition to being extremely therapeutic. We also donate classes to different organizations to give away to their supporters.
