People remember me as “Aunt Vivian” from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Throughout my years of work on television, I traveled the world and captured images of portals, doors, gates and architectural details, some of which have sparked a strong emotional response in me; they awakened the sense of wonder and curiosity that took me back to my childhood when I was endlessly exploring what was behind the many doors that surrounded me. The time has come for me to share my photographic eye with you. I hope to awaken your childhood sense of wonder and curiosity with “Daphne Maxwell Reid’s Fresh Prints®” a collection of signed DIGITAL PRINTS, NOTE CARDS, and four BOOKS that share with you the stories of the journeys that have taken me around the world, as well a one book of memories in the form of a cookbook entitled “Grace, Soul & Motherwit”.
2016 brought the start of a new creative venture for me. I am offering an opportunity for a select few to obtain one of my Custom Made Wearable Art creations called DAPHNE STYLE. I have made these Chinese inspired silk brocade coats for myself for many years and have had the opportunity to wear them as the host of “Virginia Currents” weekly show on WCVE, PBS. After many requests, I decided to share my collection. Let me show you a few of the pieces I have made for my collections and ask if you will be my next customer.
