LOWCOUNTRY    Art of South Carolina

Arianne King Comer

Arianne King Comer (batik artist) creates murals, quilts, paintings and wall hangings, using the deep violet-blue dye extracted from the indigo plant, once grown abundantly in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Now residing in Charleston, King Comer lived on St. Helena Island in Beaufort, SC, where she was director of the Ibile Indigo House at Penn Center.  She received a BFA from Howard University, did graduate work at the Cranbrook Art Academy and studied indigo processing in Nigeria on a United Nations grant. Her work is shown and collected throughout the southeast.
