About Us

Virginia Spencer


Carolina Creations is owned by Virginia Spencer who purchased the gallery from its founder, artist Janet Francoeur, in June 2017. Virginia continues to sell her work and the work of over 300 well known artists and craftsmen.

Jan retired from the world of retail to focus more on her art; exploring new techniques for creations alongside her already established works.  Jan remains the resident artist for Carolina Creations.

We have fabulous artists in our local area as well as many talented artists within our state and our country. Carolina Creations has been "my favorite store" for quite some time and I was so pleased at the opportunity to take the reins in the summer of 2017.

New perspectives always bring about change. I seek out new artists and new opportunities to share our art. Be assured that as we explore, we will continue to deliver the same quality you have grown to expect from Carolina Creations. Please share with me ideas you may have regarding your favorite art medium and any specific areas where you are seeking just the right touch. I want to find the right artist to share your vision.

I hope to see you soon.
