Drawing and sketching has always been a part of Wilmington-based artist Lois Watson’s life, winning her firs ward at age 6. As she developed her career in the corporate world, she kept her heart focused on using her drawing skills. In 1995 she started Watson Illustrating, specializing in hand-drawn and painted architectural renderings providing conceptuals to builders and developers for marketing purposes. Her renderings have appeared in Southern Living
magazine, Southern Living Home Plans
and have been used in projects up and down the east coast and the Bahamas.
10 years ago she discovered the joy of paper collage and painting with paper which allows her the freedom to express and create what inspires her soul. She finds her inspiration in beautiful papers: handmade, marbled, patterned or textured and in the beautiful coastal area we call home.
