Whitney came across our ornate vintage and handmade picture frames on our Etsy shop (link) and has since created a beautiful collection of her pieces in our best vintage frames!
To create her figures and portraits, she uses a combination of charcoal sketch, acrylic paint, and India ink on tea stained paper which she creates herself by hand for each piece using leaves from the Charleston Tea Plantation, located in Wadmalow Island, SC.
Each of Whitney's pieces are elegantly simple and unique. "I love to evoke a sense of emotion from each of my ladies, but never want them to feel overworked. Each new piece brings life to a unique personality and character. It's only through my painting that I'm able to uncover each lady's story."
