For this edition of Inside The Orange Box, we asked our designers to share about their favorite local or regional artists! We got some fantastic feedback from them. See if any of their favorites happen to be your favorite as well!
DESIGNER ELISH PHARES MOON
Dick Ford is a local Mississippi artist and my current favorite. His work spans several different styles, but I am always drawn to his more “simplistic” abstracts that explore lines or figures using watercolor. I love Dick Ford’s work because it has a strong impact in groupings or standing alone and pairs well with other artist’s pieces. I often visit Brown’s Fine Art Gallery to see his newest pieces on display whenever I get a chance!
DESIGNER CAMILLE HOLLAND PARKER
My favorite local artist is Liz Nichols, her abstract art is soothing and has a touch of modern that really shines in any space! Her color palettes and texture are beautiful and intriguing!
DESIGNER LINDSEY TOWNSEND
As of late, I have also been really interested in the abstract work of Liz Nichols! I love her color schemes and composition. Her work makes an impact on the space its in. She grew up in Jackson , MS but currently resides in Tennessee. Her work can be seen at Browns Fine Art Gallery. I also have to agree with Elish; I have always loved Dick Ford’s work. I am so happy to say that I have a piece by each of these artists in my own home!
Stay tuned for part 2 on this topic in the coming weeks!
