“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.

You can findFloyd or message her about her art on Facebook,

Instagram and

under “Reagan Floyd.”

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.
