Kandee Wallace is one of those remarkable people who excel in numerous fields.  The talented lady is a gifted artist as well as a exceptionally skilled athlete and dancer. As the Cheer and Dance Coach at Emory & Henry College she puts these skills to use as a mentor, teacher, and choreographer. Kandee is also a model and actress for Gage Models and Talent and Wilhelmina Philadelphia (now W Talent Management. She says, “I started doing art when I was about 3 and was self taught up to college. I obtained my bachelor’s in fine art with a business minor at the age of 19 after 3 years. My main mediums include acrylic, watercolor, and ink, but I also enjoy pencil, charcoal, ceramics, and wheel thrown pottery. My subject matter is often portraiture. I currently do a lot of freelance work and murals in my community.” She also kindly showed her support for reading and library use and your local Smyth County Libraries and we appreciate her help.
