Floyd quickly got busy drawing up sketches and making a portfolio of
her prior work to show area businesses.
“I wanted to see if any of the business owners would be interested in
having their windows painted for the upcoming holiday season,” said
Floyd. “I thought that at least a few would be interested, but I was
turned down by every shop on the square, except the last one I walked
into. Smokin’ Gold BBQ ended up being the first set of windows I
painted that Christmas in Dahlonega.”
Her determination and hard work paid off. Thanks to the Smokin’
Gold commission, Floyd was contacted by several other businesses
for her services, which led to even more exposure.
Presently, Floyd has multiple steady clients in the area that contract
with her to paint their windows for every season of the year.
Recently, The Fudge Factory, one of Floyd’s steady Dahlonega cli-
ents, was used as a location in the filming of “A Christmas in Home-
stead,” a Christmas movie for the Hallmark Channel.
The owner recommended Floyd to the set designers for the produc-
tion. As a result, Hallmark hired Floyd to paint Christmas scenes on
the windows as part of the backdrop for the movie scenes. An entire
day of filming was done at the shop, so Floyd is hopeful about seeing
her windows in the finished film.
A skilled artist, Floyd also dedicates herself to researching the de-
tails of what she is painting. Among her favorite commissions is a
window project she painted for Ryan Shaw, the owner of Salon on
Grogan in Lavonia.
