the Aritst

Mercedes Herring

I began drawing when I was a child. Through the years, my talent began to improve and expand. I worked with many different mediums, such as charcoal, ink, pencil, oil, and acrylic paint. 

With my passion of art, I decided to go to school for graphic design; with the growth of technology, I figured it was the way to go. I enjoyed graphic design a lot and I picked up on it very quickly. After my first year in school, I had won three ADDY's Awards-one gold and two silver.

While in school, I took a fine arts class; this is where my passion for acrylic painting began. I started painting more and more during my free time, and before I knew it, people were asking me for custom paintings. I really loved the various ideas people came up with, it helped me broaden the various styles of artwork I created. 

I have always dreamt of having my own store, but never knew what I would have in it. However, with my new passion for painting, I knew right then that I wanted to open my own art gallery. With the help of loved ones, I was able to make my dream become a reality. It has been a long and exciting journey, and I can't wait to share my talent with everyone!


In August 2016 I opened my Art Gallery show casing and selling my acrylic paintings. I wanted to focus on custom orders, to create something unique and meaningful for any ones walls. About 6 months after the opening I decided too, that I would love to host paint parties! It's a fun way to get people together to laugh and relax! 

I look forward to sharing my artwork for years to come and painting along with others in my paint classes
