My new assistant Bentley Palmer!
Im so thrilled to have a partner in crime by my side to help me grow…and God willing this is just the beginning! A little about Bentley….
Not only is she adorable, sweet and talented..but learn a little more about her here….
I grew up here in Nashville, Tenn. The arts have always been a huge part of my life. I was always covered in Paint as a kid, or finding some cool project to do to my room. I went to Ensworth High School, and continued to grow my interest in Art. I participated in several AP art classes, and went on to study fine art at the University of Mississippi. This delighted my parents because both of them are Ole Miss Graduates. At Ole Miss I was involved in the Student Art Association, and was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. I got my bachelor’s degree in Fine Art: concentration in Print Making, and a minor in Public Relations. After I graduated I immediately went to work for Billy Reid, a clothing designer based out of Florence, Ala. I started as a sales associate, and was promoted to the Store Director of the Nashville store in the summer of 2013.
I got married on September 14, 2013 to Gray Palmer, also of Nashville, Tenn.  We have a 6 year old yellow lab named Layla, and we just finished remodelling our first house in Sylvan Park. Gray is the vice president of Achiever Development based here in Nashville, and just launched his own residential real estate development firm called JGPalmer Development.  
Other Hobbies: I love to cook! I run a very small catering business out of my kitchen. I do that in my spare time. I am also an avid runner. I love spending time in the outdoors as well. 
Why I decided to come work for Delta Girl Frames:
When Sarah Ella was describing her average afternoon.. I immediately thought that it was my dream job. How wonderful is it that you get to make a career out of doing what you love. Like I said before, I felt like the creative part of my life was missing and this job really does seem to be the answer. 
I love that she is a southern woman with her own business. The south has so much to offer when it comes to the arts and culture. I love that Sarah Ella is a part of that, and I am excited to become a part of that as well. Delta Girl Frames is making a really high quality product with heirloom potential. I really like that she has never compromised the integrity of the product to make more. She spends the same amount of time and energy on every frame which exhibits true craftsmanship. American made high quality products are hard to find these days, and I will support anyone who is doing that. So excited to be a part of such an awesome process!
