DownHomeGirlStudio's Profile

About

I've been drawing and making art as long as I can remember. Down Home Girl Studio is the culmination of many years of work and the realization of a dream really. I have a Bachelor's degree of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. I have been working as a high school art teacher for the last 11 years - 5 in Los Angeles and 6 in Atlanta. I have just left teaching to pursue a Master's degree of Fine Arts in Book Arts at the University of Alabama. I have been making custom ink drawings of homes, churches and businesses for about 10 years as gifts for friends as well as a few commissions. Beginning graduate school is about honoring my true self - pursuing my art full-time and single-mindedly. Why the name Down Home Girl Studio? "Down Home Girl" is an old Rolling Stones song, but I love a recent version by Old Crow Medicine Show... it's a theme song of sorts I suppose. Thanks for taking the time to check…
