About the Artist
Hello there! My name is Lacy Wilkinson. I'm a self-taught Texas based painter. As many other artists, I remember drawing as a young child. My favorite thing to do was create!
After growing up and settling down in East Texas with my husband and two children, we started an entertainment company, Texas Elite Events Inc. The artist in me dove into anything I could get my hands on in the entertainment industry as a painter: face painting/mhendi/body painting/airbrush/balloon decor and sculpting, as well as becoming a trainer for new artists.
Unfortunately, 10 years later in February of 2020, our business came to a halt as a result of the Covid-19 shutdown, I put the ol' paintbrush to canvas once again. In all the stillness, the oil painter within was awaken.
I am over-the-top excited to take a new dive as a portrait/whatever makes-me-tick painter. To share this journey with you makes it that much more perfect.
My focus is to ignite a connection or experience between the subject and audience. I believe true art wakes an emotion within the observer or draws them to a memory or moment in time, even if that moment begins with the art itself. If you feel a connection, I have served my purpose as an artist. Adventure awaits!
