I am Lois Reed,
About me …. I am an artist to my core, as I believe we all are. One person’s art may be painting or music, while another person’s art may be cooking, or cars, or gardening … it is all art, all expression.
I am obsessed with color, shape & scent.
Officially, I studied art at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. But, where I really learned art was at my mother’s knee. Growing up I watched as she sketched & painted everything in sight. Some of my fondest memories are of us picnicking and drawing the plants by the brook … she taught me to see the purples in a winter field.
For many years I owned a bookstore/gallery/live music venue in Northwest New Jersey called “Inner Vision”. It was there, as well as in a family owned health food store, that I learned the importance of display and how to move products using “visual delight”. I find those lessons invaluable when designing and displaying in the “virtual” world of the internet.
I returned to college in 2003 and earned my Certification in WebSite Design. This certification, coupled with my art studies at the School of Visual Arts and my business background in marketing and visual display, has formed a fun and focused method of website design.
I also create acrylic paint/mixed media art, which I sell at local shops and galleries.
Some mornings you will find me on the water, in a kayak, leading kayak/eco tours at Marine Discovery Center, located in New Smyrna Beach, FL., where I am a Florida Coastal & Fresh Water Naturalist.
I drink in life, and believe that dreams come true. This is the energy that I love bringing to every website project.
