I studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design and have a degree in Interior Design with a minor in Art History. I moved to Charlotte, taking a job as an Interior Designer for Odell and Associates Architectural Firm. I spent many years raising four boys and continued to use my design skills by creating a couple of businesses. Little lemon designs, was a personalized stationery business; I then later created digiklick, a digital photo book business where I created courses and content using Photoshop Elements. I now run my newest endeavor, Charlotte Art Galley.
My Creative Path made a shift toward painting when my passion for engaging the people of my city collided with my arts background. Working alongside Uptown Charlotte organizations, who care for the public and our homeless neighbors, I was inspired to create watercolors on the streets of our city. I set up a table at the intersection of Trade and Tryon during our Saturday Uptown Worship Nights to create small pieces of personal art in a one on one setting. I named it “Hope Art” which became a place of sharing beauty for the sake of our community.
I have continued painting in both watercolor and acrylic, building a body of work in larger formats. My work was shown in various Gallery shows in Charlotte.
I served on the leadership team of Visual Artists with ArtsCharlotte, an organization to educate, encourage and engage our city in the arts. I also exhibited and volunteered for SouthEnd Arts “Artists Critiquing Artists” each month during the SouthEnd Arts gallery Crawls in 2019.
I am the founder of Charlotte Art Gallery, an IG based virtual Gallery space for local Charlotte Artists to Exhibit their work. The Aim is to connect local Artists, Interior Designers and Style conscious community. Check out charlotteartgallery.com.
