Callie is a creative soul and artist who enjoys painting, crafting, playing the guitar, singing and writing songs, collecting vintage treasures and leading worship in her church in Hunt.

She grew up in the Texas Pan Handle and has called the Hill Country her home for seven years. When she’s not busy creating, she is a wife and mom to Ruger, her five-year-old son who keeps her on her toes!

Her love for art started as soon as she was able to walk and hasn’t stopped since. She absolutely loves teaching and sharing her talents with others, and cannot wait to create with you all during this gift making retreat!
