She’s a hit nationally, but she’s a Hatteras Island gal. Vicky Lowe is a local artist who creates imagery for dinnerware. Her whimsical watercolor designs can be found in national chains such as Crate and Barrel, Willams-Sonoma and Target. She also has a textile line that can be found locally. Her designs appear on aprons, pillows, and tea towels.

Lowe passes on her expertise as a teacher and offers watercolor classes. There are two YouTube videos of her teaching watercolor at Indian Town Gallery in Frisco. You can see the work of her students and hear some of her knowledgeable instruction in the brief videos. It is fascinating to catch a glimpse of her watercolor sketches. They speak to her amazing talent as well as her positive teaching approach.
