We love supporting the talented artists here in our local areas. From New Bern to Wilmington and from painters to jewelers, we enjoy bringing the community together through art! We showcase these amazing artists monthly so come shop their designs at Lula Balou!
Wanda's work is such a beautiful reminder to the beautiful coastal area that surrounds us. Her paintings create a sense of peace and relaxation that many of us need to get out and enjoy. One of my favorites of hers is ... of course the mermaid. I love the scaling that she has going up her back.
Wanda Dunsmore is a native of the Wilmington area and studied art at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She graduated with a degree in Art in 1988 and has spent most of her adult life raising two daughters who were very active in school, sports and dance. She most recently found herself in somewhat of an "empty nest" which has allowed her to focus on painting again. Primarily, acrylic painting is her passion and she finds most of her inspiration in her family and the laid-back lifestyle of our coastal community. Wanda hopes her paintings inspire curiosity in the viewer, a sense of calm and well-being and hopes her paintings inspire each of us to take a personal responsibility to protect our delicate coastal environment so that we all can enjoy what it has to offer.
