Local artist makes a statement while helping the community Alexandria, LA
Local collage artist, VeRetta Garrison-Moller, recently donated one of her original miniatures to the Louisiana Travel and Tourism Summit held at Paragon Casino & Resort in January. The original collage, entitled “Kabuki”, brought the highest bids of any silent auction item. Proceeds from this silent auction benefited the advocacy and governmental action programs of the Louisiana Travel Promotion Association. The “Kabuki” collage is one of Moller’s most recent designs in what she calls the artistic rebirth phase of her life. This colorful intriguing woman has been defined by several very different titles in her life including entrepreneur, corporate trainer, advocate, designer – even a stroke survivor. Through each of her life experiences Moller has proven that she is not afraid of the unknown. “I just jump into the pool,” she says. “Then halfway down, I figure out if there’s water in it.” This philosophy has afforded her many amazing experiences and created a deep desire to continue exploring unknown opportunities.
VeRetta also recently donated another original collage, “Three Buttons”, for the second annual “Brunch at Tiffany’s” auction – a fundraiser for the Cenla Division of the March of Dimes. Proceeds raised at that event will assist in March of Dimes efforts.
