l. to r. : inveterate scribe, amazing graphic designer, image genius, wonderful daughter-in-law, computer savior

At a restaurant one day, Debra Darvick saw a family sitting at the table all looking at their cell phones instead of at each other.  No laughter; no stories; no interaction around the table. She realized that as useful as electronic devices were, the precious experience of conversation was sometimes getting lost in the shuffle.  Determined to find a way to shift the dynamic a bit, Debra created a set of conversation starters based on a prior creative collaboration with her husband Martin pairing his images and her words. They created a trademark for this joint effort and called it Picture a Conversation.

The whole Darvick family has a part in the Picture a Conversation  story. Debra is the scribe; Martin’s the image genius. Illustrator daughter Emma created the graphic design. Son Elliot helps Debra make sense of websites, social media and more. He’s his mom’ top-notch sounding board and primo encourager as she tests the entrepreneurial waters. And while Elizabeth, Elliot’s wonderful wife, has not been part of this creative team, she is definitely part of the Darvick team. Her support has been invaluable and we love her dearly.
