“I always knew I would enjoy painting but there were other things I chose to do first.” Audrey graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from the University of Georgia and then continued her education at Auburn University where she received a Bachelor of Architecture. A native of Georgia, Audrey and her husband Rob moved to Beaufort in 1990. She works with her husband at Montgomery Architecture and Planning. They have three boys.
“I have enjoyed working in architecture, but I have to admit, I miss pencil and paper drafting. I took a lot of pride in creating architectural drawings. Now almost everything is done using the computer.
Through the years Audrey has continued to draw and paint as a hobby, but it was not until 2009, after taking a drop-in watercolor class that she became serious about her creative work. “With these lessons, I developed a true passion for painting, especially with watercolors. I find watercolors fascinating. The pigments can be granulating or non-granulating, transparent or opaque and the way each color reacts to another is different. The possibilities are endless."
