Did you know that Spartina 449, the nationally celebrated women’s hand bag & coastal apparel brand, had their first model shoot for their first line of handbags at my gallery on Daufuskie Island(see photo below). Kay Stanley, owner of Spartina 449, has been a good friend, neighbor, and customer. To be quite honest, Kay is an inspiration to me because she has a track record of success but most importantly, she works with a smile and gets the job done. In a short amount of time, this savy businesswomen has built Spartina 449 into a nationally recognized brand. So in short, my welding mask is off to Kay for her vision and hard work. I am proud to have played a tiny part in the beginning of this play. Congrats and here’s to your future.

3. Mix up the species. Note that the mermaid sculpture looks awesome with the fish art swimming in the same direction.
