When Sibyl Alleyne opened Indigo Art & Framing in 2018, she knew she was filling a void. She said she had worked for two years with Aaron Brothers Art & Framing in Flower Mound, which had closed its doors earlier that year.

“There are a lot of people in the area who are creative. Artists like to congregate and talk about art. It had a social aspect to it that I liked and wanted to support,” Alleyne said.

With the decision made to open her own art and framing business, Alleyne offered to buy everything in her former employer’s framing department and was pleased with the price. She also asked coworker and master framer Monique Harrison to join her on the new adventure.

“I knew that Monique needed to continue being a head framer. She’s been framing for over 30 years. She is amazing,” Alleyne said.

Before they even opened the doors, a customer called with a request.


“She was our first customer when we opened. We put her little marionette in a shadowbox,” Alleyne said. “We get some really interesting things that mean a lot to people.”

One man came in with a Texas Tech flag folded in a triangle, a memento of his deceased son, that he wanted displayed in a shadowbox along with other such items.

“He and I picked out the frame,” Alleyne said. “It was sad, but I was glad we were here for him. He liked the results.”

Although framing is the business’s bread and butter, Indigo Art & Framing also has many customers who stop in looking for premium and affordable art supplies.

Alleyne said there is nowhere else nearby that offers quality art supplies coupled with the one-to-one customer support that is provided at Indigo Art & Framing.

“My favorite thing about owning this business is helping customers express their creativity, whether that be painting, drawing or framing something they love,” Alleyne said. “I really enjoy the interaction with the customers and being able to support the art community.”
