After graduating from Clemson University, Oriet started working for DeRoyal Industries, a Tennessee based medical supply company that had acquired a family business in South Carolina. After several years covering the Atlanta territory in medical sales, Oriet furthered her skills in sales and marketing by selling national advertising throughout the Southeast and Mid Atlantic for many New York City based magazines including Esquire, Wired and Worth.
Oriet then moved to Richmond, VA where she helped to launch a regional art and cultural magazine 64. Her husband was then transferred to Baltimore and Oriet took a few years off to stay at home with her two children before starting her own art consulting and virtual gallery Oriet’s Fine Art. Oriet’s grandmother first introduced her to art collecting. “She would give me paintings as gifts and had a great appreciation and eye for collecting”. One of Oriet’s uncles was also an accomplished artist. He was well known for his portraits and was invited to submit a portrait of John F. Kennedy to the White House by First Lady Jaqueline Kennedy.
Oriet’s Fine Art has been helping clients across the country on a residential and corporate level build and add to their art collections for over seven years.
