I am definitely an art lover. My mom, who is an attorney, always collected art in her office and home by Southern women artists, so I have been around beautiful art my whole life. Living in Charleston, I know so many talented artists, including the four whom I share SLATE STUDIOS with – Teil Henley, Blakely Little, Raven Roxanne, and Lulie Wallace.
I have collected art over the years, buying it even when I didn’t have the space for it. Hoarding paper works, and not framing them to save space while we lived in a little NYC apartment and our little DC brownstone. Last year just before we moved I worked with Simply Framed to have more than 20 pieces framed. They were such a help, as choosing frames on that many works at once was daunting.
Entryway artwork consists of a few faves. This Steve Keen piece was a gift from my dear cousin Hunter when I was in the hospital. I thought it was such a kind and thoughtful gift. Sally King Benedict’s face is perfect beside it.
