We had the good fortune of connecting with JODY PILGRIM and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi JODY, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Art was always something that I have been passionate about, ever since I was a child. Growing up, I have always found myself scribbling on old books and the unpainted walls within my childhood home back in Trinidad. As an adult during my time in the military, painting on canvas was a great way for me to deal with anxiety. It eventually grew from just being a hobby, to me selling my original pieces online, then hosting my very own art auction selling 11 original pieces. The satisfaction of that one art show gave me the push to officially start my business.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Joe’s Palette works with acrylic paints on canvas, We specialize in step by step classes and offer freestyle sessions with our customers. We are more than just a Sip N Paint Brand , we are a one of a kind experience that offer different themed events that cater to different groups and demographics.

What I am most proud of is the fact that this brand has brought together people from various backgrounds, who all have a great time while they create . With everything going on in the world today, it shows that art has once again, proven that it is the language of expression and unity; and I am glad that Joe’s Palette is a part of that.

The process of starting this brand was a bit challenging because I started it while being a full time college student and soldier in the Army. Managing and planning this business, taught me excellent time management skills and dedication to completing what I set my mind on.

What do I want the world to know? I want people to know that nonmatter where you come from or who you are, you can make your goals a reality . Persistence is key
