it shouldn’t be hard to fit this nut into a nutshell, but i am a wild mess of color who enjoys life in the mush pot. art is a pretty vague word, but i guess it encompasses most of the things i love. painting. doodling. imagining. all of that creative stuff–so, i’ll call what i do art.
i once dreamed of growing up to be an actress. after acting my way through the UK and performing in countless plays, i graduated college with a BBA in Marketing and an AA in Fine Art. shortly after, i found my niche in marketing and public relations.
the rest of my world revolves around being a mom to my exquisite Vayda P.
i’m an only child. my mom and dad are my best friends. i know, love and follow Christ. i’ve done all kinds of bucket-listish things like: serve on the Board of Directors for the Kiwanis Club of Dougherty County, AACC Ambassadors and became chairman the Emerge Albany Young Professionals of Albany. I also received the honor of Southwest Georgia’s 40 Under Forty in 2013 and helped a company receive the coveted title of Small Business of the Year in Albany.
i itch to travel and i delight at learning new things. you’ll find i’m neurotic, intellectual, honest and somewhat naive. i’m open and compassionate, yet paradoxically hard on myself. my biggest fear is succumbing to cynicism, and my greatest joy is experiencing growth.
i refuse to grow up, so don’t be surprised if you see me singing, laughing and dancing my way through a day. i write in lowercase letters as a salute to the unconventionality of my favorite poet, e. e. cummings. because i am e. e. whatley, after all.
