Paige Kalena Follmann was drawn to art at an early age, but never thought she could make a career of it. Now the marketing-turned-abstract artist is known for her striking use of color, pattern and shape.

Artist & background: Follmannoriginally from Highland Park in Dallas, Texas, is a graduate of the University of Georgia. She also trained at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center.

The career shift: Follmann began painting to have a creative outlet from her marketing job. She started sharing photos of her work, and soon friends (and eventually clients) were commissioning paintings. In 2015, Follmann launched her website and online shop. Follmann works out of her home studio in Virginia Highland.

What’s popular: Hand-painted, Picasso-esque ceramic vases ($50 to $200).

Other favorites: Abstract figure paintings ($600 to $3,000). Also custom pieces for clients and interior designers.

Big break: Invited to exhibit her work at the Swan Coach House Gallery at the Atlanta History Center a week after launching her website.

Claim to fame: Having one of her paintings hanging in a custom designed home in the Hampton’s.

Where to buy: www.paigekalenafollmann.com. Also at Spotlight on Art at The Trinity School in Atlanta (Jan. 30-Feb. 4).
