Sunny Mullarkey McGowan is a fine artist residing in Greenville, South Carolina. With her father in the Navy, she had the opportunity to live in a variety of places before settling in Beaufort, South Carolina at age 12. Living in the sea islands of the Low country, her love for nature’s beauty and majesty grew.
