SO EXCITED, to include Sallie and her works into HBD's Collection! Sallie embodies all things HBD: love for arts, dogs, travel, the outdoors and is a true southern belle! Therefore, we are over the moon to be releasing Sallie's Collection this Thursday, August 9th at 8PM EST. on Huntley Belle Designs!
More on Sallie and her technique:
Sallie is a trained artist from Columbus, Ga. with a degree in Hospitality Management and a minor in Business from Auburn University. She grew up in art classes and continued her art education in New York City where she studied Art at Parsons The New School for a summer during her undergrad. After school she took a management position at Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta, GA where she learned the ins-and-outs of the art world.
Now a full-time artist, Sallie lives and works in Denver, CO with her husband, where she specializes in watercolor wildlife portraits and decorative pieces with gold leaf accents. A southern girl at heart, Sallie's memories of days spent in the country with her dad and grandfather and her mother's southern hospitality have molded her unique style along with her husband's passion for fishing and all things outdoors. Always open for commission work, Sallie's intent for her clients is to cherish their piece of art as a meaningful keepsake over a fleeting trend.
