sherry & scott
sherry & scott are the proud owners of meg-art, since 1997, when we only had 1 daughter, megan - the namesake of meg-art! since then, our family has grown, with the addition of 2 more daughters, allee & darby, and our dogs, madi, kodi & finnley - who love to hang out at meg-art! i’m sure many of you have watched all of them grow up!
meg-art has been so rewarding for us - from seeing all the artwork through the years, watching people find their creative side that many never knew existed, working with our always awesome staff, to being a part of so many lives that have come in, use & display their pottery in their homes. we truly thank you for the never-ending support all these years - without our painters, we wouldn’t be living our dream!!
when we aren’t at the studio, we love family time, cooking, traveling & mountain biking. we’ve had many adventures & hope it all continues for many, many more years.
we hope to see you painting soon because “painting pottery is fun!”
hello my name is darby george, you may know me from the samples throughout the store or as the owners youngest daughter. I currently attend Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. I LOVE to dance, hangout with friends and interact with our fun and exciting costumers. I have been helping out with the studio throughout my whole childhood. Having this job so early has truly helped with social skills and work ethic. My favorite thing about meg-art is the espresso bar - I love drinking coffee and making it for other people. I also love helping with pottery painting ideas, hearing feedback and brightening other peoples day!
Hey there! My name is Emily and I have been a part of the meg-art fam since 2010! Some of my favorite things about meg-art are seeing everyone’s creations and whipping up coffees at our espresso bar. Outside of the studio you can catch me loving on all the animals at my job as a veterinarian technician. In my free time I love to cook/bake, travel (to Boone especially…Go ’Neers), go brewery hopping and hang with friends and family. Some nights you might find me at meg-art painting late on various projects—come get crafty with me!

I love talking to really cool customers and seeing their awesome masterpieces! You’ll probably notice me jamming to whatever music is playing while I’m working. I also LOVE pretty much anything at the meg-art espresso bar, although I think my favorite is probably an iced cappy con leche (thanks for introducing it to me Megan)!! My house is FULL of cool pottery filled with memories. I think at least half of our mugs are from meg-art! In my free time I love to draw, sing, act, read, hang out with friends, rock out to music, and paint. I hope to see you at meg-art!

madi was the first studio dog in 2009 when her human sister allee convinced her parents to rescue her from a local animal shelter when she was 9 months old.
anytime her people asked her if she wanted to go to meg-art, she got so excited & ran right to the car!
she loved hanging out with all the painters when she was there & got lots of treats from the friday night regulars (they knew chicken was her favorite) + everyone admired her beauty when they walked in ☺️
in her spare time, she loved to take long naps & bark at squirrels!
*madi went to heaven august 5th 2022 - she will always be remembered as the BEST studio pup ever!!

gamma & gampa
this is dale & paul but most people know or call them “gamma & gampa" as they are the mother/father, mother-in-law/father-in-law, and grandmother/grandfather of sherry, scott, megan, allee & darby.
gamma worked at meg-art several years ago until she decided to retire. she loved working here - helping customers, putting away pottery orders & doing kiln work, but she really enjoyed keeping the shelves organized (we called her the re-arranger)! she still loves to paint displays at home in her spare time. gamma & gampa are our proudest supporters of our little pottery studio we opened way back in 1997 :)
they are both retired now and on occasion they will show up to give a helping hand or come in & paint at the studio. they live in sun city carolina lakes, indian land, sc - have been married now for 52 years and enjoy traveling and riding their harley.
