Susanna and her partner, Chris, founded Embrace.Gallery to help artists connect with art lovers. Chris and Susanna first worked together to create FlourishMedia.us. Flourish Media helps small businesses communicate with customers through social media.
Susanna has been involved with the local art community for many years and currently serves on the board of the Aiken Artists Guild with Chris. Embrace.Gallery was the natural progression of their social media work and involvement with the arts. An art collector herself, Susanna hopes to show others that collecting art is a fun and accessible hobby.
Susanna has been creating art her whole life, and comes from a family of artists. Her background includes traditional media and art history, but her current creative passion is digital art. She has over two decades of web design and development experience. She studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta and graduated with a degree in Multimedia.

The story of our latest project...

Our Story:

Hello and welcome! We are Susanna King and Chris McKeel, the founders of Embrace.Gallery!

We believe original art should be accessible to everyone we are so excited by the idea of connecting artists with patrons! Embrace.Gallery showcases regional artists (Southeastern US).

Susanna has a background in graphic design and website/UX design. Chris is a photographer. Together we formed FlourishMedia.us to help local businesses create content and manage their social media.

Active in the arts community, we were often approached by talented artists who wanted to sell their work online. These artists are dedicated to their art, but they sometimes struggle with marketing their work. They just want to paint!

At Embrace.Gallery, we photograph their work, tell their stories and promote them through our online gallery and social media, all with the goal of selling their work.

We ask the artists to share our Embrace.Gallery with their online connections, creating a collaborative effort to promote each other. Collaboration helps those wanting original art for their homes and businesses find just the right artist and just the right art!

Embrace.Gallery is currently representing Debbie Black and Marsha Shelburn. We will be adding artists all the time, so be sure to follow us!!!

Meet Marsha Shelburn!
Marsha started painting about thirty years ago. She would eke out time in the evenings and on weekends while teaching economics at the local university. Marsha has audited university art classes and participated in workshops with professional artists. She loves to travel and her art has been influenced by visits to art museums all over the world.

Retired from teaching, Marsha spends most afternoons painting. She has won Best of Show and numerous other awards in South Carolina shows. Her paintings and commissions have sold to clients mostly in the Southeast.

In her own words...
"Life is a lot more interesting when viewed as a slideshow of possible paintings. I see much more than I did before I started painting. I look carefully at colors, textures, shapes, and the effects of light, as I try to capture them on canvas. I pay more attention to interactions between people. I enjoy the finer points of both nature and urban areas.
Usually I paint with oils, but it is tempting to try every sort of art. Sometimes I switch to acrylics and pastels; or I’ll experiment with encaustics or a medium entirely new to me."
My favorite subjects are people caught in their daily routines or in unique places. But I like many other subjects, too…animals, plants, buildings, boats, etc. I usually have several very different paintings going at the same time, so I can alternate sketching, painting details, creating backgrounds, using different colors, etc.
My art has been juried into shows and won awards, but I feel most honored when people choose my art for their homes."

Artistic Animal Tees | eBay Stores

Artist Robert Campbell Art is known for his amazing paintings and drawings of animals. In fact, for years zoos all over the country have asked him to draw their most popular creatures for their souvenir t-shirts!
As a result, Robert ended up with hundreds of sample tees from various zoos. Flourish Media helped him set up an eBay store so all these great animal shirts - new, never worn - can find a home.
Check out the shop! You might find something from your favorite zoo or with an animal you love. Check back often as we add new shirts in all sizes.

A Creative Collaboration

“Synergy” is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. That’s what we’ve got at Flourish Media, combining Chris McKeel’s photography and business experience with Susanna King’s design and technology experience.

Social media is currently the most cost-effective way to communicate your brand with customers, but it takes a lot of time and energy to understand and maximize. Working independently, both Susanna and Chris found it difficult to stay on top of their social media marketing while serving their clients and managing their businesses. Several of Chris’ clients had repeatedly mentioned that they don’t have the time or energy to add Social Media Guru to their list of credentials.

While Susanna and Chris were helping each other manage their businesses, they realized that combining a photographer with an online media specialist made them uniquely qualified to help small businesses communicate their story with current and potential customers. So in April of 2019, they founded Flourish Media to help businesses in the CSRA with their social media and branding needs.

Aiken Bella Magazine was proud be a sponsor of the Boot Scootin' for Kids to benefit the Child Advocacy Center of Aiken County on Saturday. The sold out event was a great success!!

We thought we'd share a few pictures of the event. More will be in the Scene Around Town section of the March Bella.

Abundantly talented, knowledgeable and genuine.
So blessed to work with Flourish Media.
Big thanks to Flourish Media for coordinating the Aiken City Limits social media! Check out their website FlourishMedia.us.

I have stumbled into one of the greatest jobs for me. As part of Flourish Media I photograph events around town for BELLA Magazine's magazine and social media. I have always loved documentary style photography, especially street photography. This gives me a reason to do just that!

At Aiken's Oktoberfest a few weeks ago, this adorable girl very animated while eating her ice cream. I wanted to capture it but could see her father might be a bit concerned, so I asked if it was OK to photograph her. This was the result. Nice but not the moment I was seeing just seconds before.

If you see me photographing your kids around town, I'll ask your permission---after I capture the moment.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for Rock 'n Ride-- An Aiken City Limits Mini Event. Anybody's Guess sounded great and the riders were all smiles. Thanks Katy Thomasson Lipscomb for sharing your space and the Aiken Bicycle Advocacy group for hosting!
