“Come quickly. Have found heaven.”
Upon first experiencing the heaven of South Carolina, the artist Alfred Hutty immediately sent a poignant telegram (1900s text message) to his wife.
From King Street in Charleston to Death Valley in Clemson, you know South Carolina is heaven. Like Mr. Hutty, you too share this sentiment with family and friends (perhaps on Instagram instead of telegram).
Like you, local South Carolina artist Helen Fallaw shares this sentiment too: “I love my home state of South Carolina.”
Born, raised and residing in South Carolina, Helen has spent her life in the heaven of South Carolina. Her artwork is inspired by the beauty, history, and nature of her home state. Helen shares her love for South Carolina with you by applying her South Carolina-inspired artwork to textile design.
In a series of digital ink pen drawings, Helen chose a bold style for the regalia sky, white brush strokes and orange trim (like the stripes of a tiger) of the Clemson game days you love to release the emotions of your story with unparalleled detail, as if you are there, in the story:
Tailgating all day with the Clemson family that taught you the only game on the schedule that really matters is the Palmetto Bowl. Shaking the Southland with eighty-one thousand class rings raised high upon circling fists en route to yet another win in Death Valley. Racing to the bars downtown to join in the massive celebration and returning to the tailgate well after the fireworks finish with your old college crew for another few hours of behaving like twenty-year-olds.
