Lulie Wallace has a pretty name and an even prettier artistic style. Based in Charleston, South Carolina, she creates one of a kind, acrylic-on-birch paintings with truly stunning color combinations.
Lulie was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia and in Charleston, she's found her new home and supportive network. She currently paints at a non profit community art center called Redux, with over two dozen other artists.
Lulie is passionate about color and is always thinking up the next palette of complementary hues. Lulie, "I am constantly looking around at successful color combos in my everyday life, whether that be in a spectacular blouse or an amazing Charleston sunset. But, I currently have two favorite colors: one is a mint green and the other is like a magenta mixed with white."
I particularly like her backdrops which look like wallpaper that I'd love in my own home.
Lulie is drawn to flowers and landscapes that showcase the beauty of mother nature. Yet, like many great artists, she knows it's the imperfections in life that are the good stuff. Lulie, "The less perfect the subject, the more beautiful the finished product."
