When did you start your career in art? How long have you known you wanted to be an artist?


I always enjoyed art activities in school. Then in high school, I attended the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts in Creative Writing where I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the arts for an entire summer. That really fueled my passion! I went on to graduate from New York University with honors in 1999 with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communications.

When did you start your career in art? How long have you known you wanted to be an artist?
I have always had my hands in some kind of artistic activities. I was born in 1948 in Pennsylvania and grew up in a family with four brothers. I attended business schools both in Pittsburgh and Cleveland, Ohio and then I worked for Neiman-Marcus for over 30 years in South Florida and Charlotte. Not until after college, did I really recognize my talents to see things that others did not. After trying several mediums, I reached the point that I am today with jewelry.

26 Jul Coffey & Thompson Impressions

When one walks in the doors to Coffey & Thompson Art Gallery, Frame & Design in the Historic Gold District of South End Charlotte, the walls of hundreds of framing samples behind the counter, as well as the original art hung in the gallery, gives the feeling of history and undeniable impression of artistic intelligence. No wonder Coffey & Thompson has been such a familiar name to Charlotteans since 1946 as not your typical art gallery! Located in the revitalizing South End Neighborhood which has enjoyed beautification and gentrification developments as the City of Charlotte merges into the 21st Century, Coffey & Thompson represents a myriad of artistic mediums, accomplished local, regional and international artists in the world of framing, restoration and original art.
