Margaret Hutton Cheatham joined Artsy MaQnolias as contributing editor in fashion. She is a graduate of Georgia Southern University with a degree in Fashion Design & minor in Marketing.She lived in New York, NY while completing her internship with an esteemed knitwear design firm, Capricorn Design, LTD.& has since worked with a custom costume company. DIY projects are what keeps her creative juices flowing and she has spent most of the past year experimenting in different fields of fashion design. She has most recently focused on making custom bridal headpieces and wedding veils. She incorporates unique individual design and antique jewelry. Personal touches are added by using family heirloom jewelry and wedding dress pieces. Meg loves the juxtaposition of modern versus vintage in every sense of fashion design. Shopping secondhand has always been a favorite pastime and she loves buying pieces with “potential” and adding her own personal touches to each piece, whether it’s completely re-creating the garments or embellishing with paint and adornments. Creating handmade jewelry and headpieces and hand painting pillows are also things that she enjoys. Pretty much anything created by hand could be made my Meg.

Quincy Walker joined Artsy Maqnolias as an contributing editor. She graduated from Valdosta State University with a degree in Mass Media. At an early age Quincy developed a flair for writing. Growing up on a farm in the South with 4 other siblings, Quincy's parents strongly encouraged reading, and outdoor play, (television was not an option). Her imagination ran wild as she and her siblings would make up games, plays, stories, and new adventures to go on. Throughout her life writing has been her number one creative outlet. It is her love, passion, and sanity. “Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.” -E. L. Doctorow
