When starting my business in the fall of 2019, it was important for me to come up with a name that was unique and not just my personal name. My desire is to cultivate a seamless client experience that fosters deep connection and lasting friendships
I hail from a lineage of creatives and entrepreneurs. My father, in tandem with his father and two brothers, ran a cartography business, where they meticulously hand-carved intricate maps of the serene lakes nestled in the Southeastern United States. I spent many summers lending a hand in their dimly lit darkroom, intently watching as they honed their artistry.
Growing up, I would spend hours on Microsoft paint or with my countless art supplies crafting masterpieces. I went on to obtaining a studio art degree from Georgia College & State University where I concentrated in painting, printmaking, and fiber arts. I graduated right after exhibiting in my senior show where I commissioned a 15' piece made up of raw canvas, acrylic, and hand-stitched textiles.
Immediately after graduation, I joined a small design studio, where I honed my skills in graphic design and developed a passion for brand and website design. Over the course of four years, I gained valuable design experience, and this journey led me to take the next step. That's when Lovendear began.
