HPU Alumna Starts Online Art Business

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 24, 2010 – High Point University alumna Alex Stanley is making the most of her degree both in the working world and in her spare time by starting her own business.

SimplyLucky is Stanley’s online business where she sells hand-made jewelry and photography. She was inspired to create her pieces while working in the historic and artistic city of Richmond, Va.

After graduating in 2007, Stanley took a marketing position in Mount Airy, N.C., allowing her to utilize some of her acquired skills. However, over the past two years, she has been involved with Virginia politics and was recently appointed to work at the Governor?s Mansion with the First Lady of Virginia. Since moving to Richmond, Va., Stanley has once again become inspired to pursue her artistic endeavors.

As a studio art major at HPU, Stanley was able to explore many facets of the art world. She attributes her love and appreciation to the professors that guided her during her four-year journey.

“HPU taught me so many different forms of art and multiple ways of using them,” says Stanley. “I think my art is unique. Working in a historical atmosphere has motivated me to design; I think you can really see that in my jewelry and photography.”
