Lou Wackes, the face behind Messy Heart Studio, has always enjoyed art and creativity. Growing up, Lou would often design her own clothing and accessories, dreaming of the day she would start her own fashion line! However, as a teen, Lou took an interest in peer mentoring and got a degree in psychology. With an ache in her heart for the challenges teens face, she chose a career as a middle school teacher. All the while, art and creativity kept pouring into every aspect of her teaching, so she finally stopped fighting it and became a full time artist. Lou specializes in hand drawn watercolor illustration, personalized gallery wall art, and product design. She still loves mentoring teens, and, in fact, has three of her own! When she is not in her studio, you can probably find Lou driving her kids all around town, or dining out with her husband at their favorite Thai restaurant in their hometown Newnan, Georgia.
