a female-centered artist gallery to display the creative entrepreneurship of local artists.



We aim to show work created by artists who exhibit a strong sense of individuality, knowledge in their field, and diversity in thought and opinion.


Meredith Walker


I am an abstract painter based in Columbia, SC. I received a BFA in graphic design from the University of South Carolina in 2013. After working as a designer for several years, and having had my second daughter in 2019, I discovered abstract painting in my desire to create more personal and expressive work.




Julie K. is a painter, potter, and illustrator based in Columbia, SC. Julie’s work combines endangered species with the bold colors and patterns of medieval illuminated manuscripts. Julie graduated Summa Cum Laude from Winthrop University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts, and a Minor in Art History. Keep up with her creative journey on Instagram @juliek.art or at juliekart.com



Conservation will only be reached through education. Julie hopes that her paintings will bring more awareness and appreciation for earth’s amazing animals, and inspire others to protect them.
