  • Artist Statement

    I believe that your foundation tells you where you begin, but not where you will end up. I believe family is there to help you along the way and the fun that you have is a perk of the journey. I believe that class, whimsey and a touch of charm never go out of style. I believe your love of the South defines you as much as your monogram and signature cocktail. I believe there is something to be said for a handwritten note and a printed party invitation and these should not be a part of the past but always in the present. Magnolia Creative Co. is rooted in these beliefs and the love of good paper, an endless paintbox of color and that every day can be a party. No matter what storm comes your way always, laissez les bon temps rouler!
