“Ryan was the first business owner, other than my father, to
let me paint his windows when I was first starting out,” she said.
“Having painted his windows five different times before, I asked
him if he would let me just have at it and do something crazy.
As soon as he agreed, I got to work doing sketches. When the
day came, it took me seven hours to complete the painting, but
it was so worth it!”
Floyd said the project was a whimsical look at the salon chairs
of the future from a retro perspective.
The paintings depict characters having their hair curled,
styled, cut and dried by the chairs. Articles of clothing, chairs
and other objects are inspired by time periods ranging from the
1950s to the 1970s.
Not long ago, Floyd returned to her high school alma mater
to spruce up the windows in the guidance office.
In each pane of glass, there is now a lion and each lion bears an
uncanny resemblance to a member of the guidance office staff.
The manner in which she captured each individual’s personality
speaks to her talent.
Aside from windows, Floyd said she loves doing murals, can-
vas paintings, pallet wood paintings, typography, screen print-
ing, sewing and weaving.

Floyd plans to transfer to the University of Georgia for spring
semester in hopes of being accepted into the art program. She
plans to pursue her bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
In the meantime, if you are inNortheast Georgia, keep a look-
out for her work. You never know where you might find it.
