Feature Friday: Sunny Mullarkey

Happy Feature Friday!

This week we are featuring artist, Sunny Mullarkey! We love her nature inspired work! Each piece has so much life and whimsical detail to it while simultaneously having a  symmetry, precision and balance that really captures the very essence of nature and the creatures that inhabit it. Sunny has some awesome advice for all you artists out there, as well as some insight into her own journey as a lifelong creative. To check out more of her work visit the links below and read on to learn more about Sunny Mullarkey Studios!


: Tell us a little about yourself.

: I’m an artist and mother of three, living with my amazingly supportive husband, in Greenville, South Carolina. I have always been creative, from loving every colorful crayon, paint and paper I could get my hands on as a kid, to making art as my chosen profession today! I love hiking and strolling through the woods, exploring from the ground to the treetops – in the mountains or along the marshes of the coastline. Having family on these wilderness adventures means so much to me! My dad was in the Navy, so I moved around a lot as a child, until our family settled in Beaufort, South Carolina when I was 12. The lowcountry is magnificent, and I was very lucky to grow up in such a beautiful part of our world. I attended the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts for Visual Art, and went to Anderson University and the University of South Carolina for college, getting to explore so many mediums and art forms. I love listening to audiobooks, podcasts and lots and lots of music while in the studio!
