About Camilla Webster 
Camilla Webster is a museum-collected and widely exhibited fine artist, best-selling author, TED speaker and lecturer. Webster is a New York artist but has been painting in South Florida since 2017, working in acrylic on canvas as she focuses on the essence of nature and the landscapes of Palm Beach, the Florida Keys and the American West.

Webster obtained her Joint Honors MA and BA in Modern History and History of Art from the University of St. Andrews (Scotland) in 1995. Since 2013, Webster has exhibited in galleries and given art talks by special invitation in Miami, London, Paris and New York. Since 2010, Webster has lived and worked between Miami, New York and the UK. Webster currently maintains a studio in Palm Beach, Florida.

Webster explores her ideas through working in acrylic, oils, video and photography. Themes also are informed by her background as a leading veteran journalist and storyteller at Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and other international news outlets in finance, global affairs and more. She is co-author with Carol Pepper of the bestselling award-winning book, “The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman’s Guide to Enjoying Wealth and Power.”

About Mickey Hart
Best known as a drummer in the renowned expedition into the soul and spirit of rock and roll that is the Grateful Dead, multi-GRAMMY Award winner Mickey Hart is also an accomplished writer, energetic painter, restless explorer, and an acclaimed expert on the history and mythology of drums. A true original, armed with an inventor’s audacious curiosity, Hart boldly seeks to break the rhythm code of the universe and investigate its deepest vibrations.

“Underneath the world’s extraordinary musical diversity is another, deeper realm,” said Hart about his lifelong quest to explore rhythm. “There is no better or worse, no music versus folk music, no distinctions at all, but rather an almost organic compulsion to translate the emotional fact of being alive into sound, into rhythm, into something you can dance to.”
