Scarlett is happiest when she is outside.  Her goal is to capture that joy in her landscape art: the feeling of blessed contentedness, awe, fulfillment.  Growing up "in the woods, by the creek" in China Grove, on the outskirts of Charlotte, provided Scarlett the opportunity to observe nature firsthand, to be awed by it.  As an artist, she has explored many different media and created original works in metals, stain glass, acrylics, watercolors, oils, pastels, clay, and charcoal.  Scarlett challenges herself to try new things often to keep her mind fresh and satiated.  Curiosity drives her to continuously explore new media.  Pastels are her current favorite.  Pastel allows her to use her hands, body, eye, to build the image in her mind.  The hunger for new experiences pushes her to go places, make new friends, and try new things.
