Lily is one of the very talented artist's who is in charge the Social Media for Studio Cellar. She is such an inspiring person to watch and grow with as she balances so many fascinating aspects of her life. Lily is a full time Art student at the University of South Carolina and also employed at the Columbia Museum of Art. We are so lucky to have such an empowered and vibrant young woman working on staff and orchestrating all that goes on behind the scenes with us.
Studio Cellar is 100% owned by local female artist, born and raised right here in SC! Building a business from scratch and keeping it running for almost a decade is not a one man show though. I rely heavily on my family on a daily basis and could not have done anything without their help, encouragement, support and love.
When people ask me how we got into this, I always say it really started at birth. I was born an artist and have always been creative with forging my own path.
Before we opened Studio Cellar my career was traveling the word as a Art Dealer, selling works of art by famous artist such as Picasso, Dali, Rembrandt, Goya, etc. As a International Galley Director, I traveled to many countries such as Russia, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium and made it a point to visit the worlds top Art Museums because it really is my passion.
I eat, sleep and breath art and would do this all for free. It is truly fulfilling to bring art down to earth to people who wouldn't normally choose to paint. When COVID-19 hit I realized this studio was my entire life and I was going to have to do whatever it took to keep it alive and in the fabric of Columbia, SC.
My family and the most passionate and talented staff here at Studio Cellar love customizing our space to fit your needs whether it's spending the evening after work with us, bringing your family in on the weekend to paint or renting the venue for your own private event. We've seen many first dates, turn into engagements, turn to weddings, turn into baby showers, turn to anniversaries, turn into kids birthday parties… all at the studio we created purely from our own love, sweat and tears. Nothing is more rewarding to be your business of choice.
Art might be one of the most powerful things in this world, and we all have it inside of us waiting to be discovered.
