SWEETPEA’S LENZ BY DARSELLB. (Writer/Director/Producer- Photographer) began working in the entertainment industry at a young age. Her life in photography started as a journalist with the publication of her newsletter SweetPea's International Arts Review. She was honored to receive the 2003 Harlem Arts Alliance Re-Grant Award.
Journalistically she has photographed awards ceremonies, openings, festivals, and events including, but not limited to, The National Black Theatre Festival, The CMJ Music Festival, The August Wilson Century in New York City & The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Urbanworld, The ABFF, The Atlanta Black Arts Festival, The Essence Awards, The Billboard Awards, Midem, The GRAMMY Awards, and had her own stage at the 1996 Olympic Games.
Always ready with her camera, she primarily finds relaxation when taking pictures of nature and still life. A majority of her photography is unedited (straight out of the can), however, there are times when artistic renderings are created. In addition to prints, selected artwork is currently being produced as acrylic and glasswork.
Recently deciding to share her work with a wider audience, SweetPea’s Lenz by DarsellB. has been on exhibit in the 2019 Spring Artist Showcase presented by Artsy Shark; the 1st Holidays & Traditions International Art Exhibition 2018 presented by Fusion Art, Palm Springs, CA, 4th Place Award “The Sugar Plum Fairy”; the Surfaces 2018 Group Exhibit & its Magazine presented by LoosenArt Gallery, Rome, Italy; the 2018 Botanical & Floral Online Exhibition presented by Light Space & Time Gallery, Jupiter, FL, Special Recognition “Orchid Moon”; the 2nd International Photography Exhibition 2018 presented by Fusion Art, Palm Springs, CA; All Women Online Exhibit 2018 presented by J.Mane Gallery, Voorhees Township, NJ; the 2nd Annual SPRUNG Exhibit 2018 presented by ArtHouseNYC, New York, NY; the East Greenbush Library Exhibit December 2017 presented by Capital Region Photography Group, Albany, NY; the 3rd Annual AUTUMNAL Exhibit 2017 presented by ArtHouse NYC, New York, NY; and the 2016 Postcard Exhibit presented by Linden New Arts, St. Kilda, Australia.
Her fine art photography is also currently used as backdrops for The Carmen Mathis Show, produced by Casea Arts Inc.; and is seen as the official CD cover image for “Please Save Your Love For Me”, CD by Ebony Jo-Ann produced by Blackgold Productions Inc., as well as other ancillary uses.
As a 3-year cancer survivor, Darsell seeks to continue her mission to “capture that moment” and aid artists with their endeavors. "I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalms 34:1
