Lulie Wallace lives and works in Charleston South Carolina where she peruses her career and passion of painting.
In Lulie’s own words:
I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia and made my way over to Charleston, South Carolina to attend the College of Charleston. I majored in Studio Art and minored in Spanish and toyed with the idea of either going to grad school to get my masters in Social Work or Graphic Design. I ended up spending my summer after college painting just to buy time to think about which one I wanted to choose. After selling a couple of my pieces, I thought, heck, I’m going to give this artist thing a shot, and I’d say it was a pretty good decision. I fell in love with Charleston during my time in college and it has so much to offer for such a relatively small city. Charleston has been a great environment for me to grow and be challenged as a painter and I love being a part of the community of artists here!
I really do think my paintings very much reflect who I am and what I’m attracted to in my everyday life. I am attracted to joyful, thoughtful people. I love bright, vibrant colors and often find inspiration in everyday items like a vintage Kilim rug, a unusual print on a blouse, or an envelope liner that contains a letter from a friend. I have a strong appreciation for the strange and quirky and love a good exclamation mark (or two)!! I just get excited. I feel incredibly thankful to work in a job that I love and am passionate about. My hope is that my paintings simply bring a piece of joy to the homes they inhabit.
