Marquin Designs + a Giveaway

Art is something that I am constantly on the look out for clients, so I was thrilled when I meet Marquin of Marquin Designs. Her work is gorgeous and at a price that won't break the bank. Marquin is giving away a gorgeous piece of her artwork to one lucky reader.
 It's sitting in my office right now, and Shannon and I have been admiring it for the past few days. We really aren't thrilled about letting it go, but I know that one of you will find a perfect place for it. 
(The front painting Marquin made for Tilley-Gray's room!)

Want to know a little more about Marquin
Marquin Campbell, a native of Savannah, Georgia, has loved all things creative since she was young.  After studying Drawing and Painting at The University of Georgia she went on to study fashion design at Parsons School of Design in New York City.  After dipping her fingers in the world of fashion, she returned to marry a Southern beau, George.  

She started her jewelry lineMarquin Designs and Vino & van Gogh (a two hour wine & paint class) out of her home in January 2011.  Both companies have taken off and she squeezes in every free moment to pursue her third interest: painting. 

Marquin keeps open hours of 2-6 Tuesday-Friday and welcomes visitors to her studio located at 1818 Augusta Street, Suite 112- Greenville, SC 29605

  1. Hi there! I liked Marquin and P&Q on Facebook. Now, where would I hang this? Probably in my dining room to tie in the coral faux bamboo my sweet husband just helped me hang. Or maybe in my office? I tend to rotate art to refresh a room. Thanks for the fab giveaway!

  4. I liked Marquin and was already a fan of Poplin & Queen on facebook :) I have been on the lookout for a piece of art to hang in entryway of our house. I think this piece would be just perfect! I love it. I also absolutely love Greenville, SC and the next time I'm visiting my sister I might just have to pop by the studio! Thanks for the giveaway and enjoy your vacay! (oops, that rhymed!)

  6. What a beautiful painting by Marquin! Love the bold yet still feminine colors. I would LOVE to hang this in my boudior. The boudior is really just the back room of our 1920s bungalow. Once just a plain old laundry room, over the past year we have worked to turn the space into a room just for me, where dresses and jewlery hang, my books can be stacked, and I can simply enjoy being a girl. I have been wishing and wishing for an original piece of art to help tie it all together! THIS WOULD BE absolutely PERFECT. I liked you and M. Thanks for the giveaway. xo Coco Elise

  26. I liked both Marquin and Poplin & Queen on the Face! I also love following Poplin on Pinterest! Marquin's art is absolutely lovely, I just moved into a new apartment and I would put the painting on the bare wall above my desk - it could use a "pop" of color!

  28. I liked Marquin on Facebook and I actually love Poplin & Queen so I had "liked" y'all some time ago!

    I am decorating our FIRST house so there are tons of places I would hang the painting.

    Considering the bright colors, I'd most likely hang it in our dining room. You have a direct shot of the dining room from anywhere in the house and the walls are currently a very fun coral color! I'm dying to play up the "fun" in this room and the painting would be perfect!!

  29. I like Marquin and already Like & LOVE Fifi Cheek on Facebook. I'd definitely hang this downstairs so as many people could see it as possible. Probably in our kitchen where it's light and bright. It's sure to make me smile every day! What great work.

  30. Like both on FB! As for where I'd hang the painting... maybe our bedroom where I could enjoy it each morning or our entry to greet us when we come home each day. The painting is gorgeous.

I have just gotten an upholstered headboard and a new geometric print chair that the painting would look fabulous with. It would tie my room together and be the perfect finishing piece!
