Skylar is the youngest artist in the history of The Alley Cat Gallery. However, the 19-year old is certainly a seasoned artist. She calls Saltillo, Mississippi home while currently studying architecture at Mississippi State University. Growing up in an artistic world, she realized early in her life that she wanted a career in the arts. And while she is still determining that actual path, she says she enjoys spending her days being creative with watercolors, acrylics and charcoals, primarily by studying flowers and animals.
In 2019, Skylar won the Tupelo, Mississippi Student Creative Portfolio Scholarship Competition. That year, she also won several other awards culminating to a showing in the Brooks Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.
“I have been taught by my superiors to start with the basics and then dive into bigger and bolder things regarding my art.” – Skylar Sloan
