About Me
I've enjoyed art since I was a small child.  Some of my favorite times were spent coloring, sketching and taking art lessons.  After drifting away from my creative side for a few years, I took an introductory faux finishing class.  What an amazing day! Not only did I discover an art form that I loved,  I learned it was something I could do professionally.  I am blessed to have found a career which allows me to do what I love.
 
Every job brings something new.  I am able to work with classic finish techniques which have been around for centuries, develop new  contemporary finishes and everything in between.
  
As a member of the International Decorative Artisan’s League   ( IDAL )  and president of their local chapter, Carolina Creative Artisans,  I enjoy collaborating with other like-minded artists. We are able to learn from each other and also join forces to complete various philanthropic projects throughout the area.
 
I've been blessed to be married to my best friend for nearly 30 years.  We have a beautiful daughter who is now following in my footsteps.  Not only does she paint cabinets and furniture, she teaches workshops and represents an amazing line of paint.  I enjoy having the opportunity to occasionally work together on projects. Please check her out at www.LacySeagroves.com.
 
Most of all, I enjoy meeting so many wonderful people through my work.
