Contemporary artist Courtney Khail lives and works in Athens, Georgia.
Originally from Augusta, Georgia, Courtney Khail studied visual arts at John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School for eight years before going on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Scientific Illustration from The University of Georgia's Lamar Dodd School of Art.
A storyteller at heart, Khail utilizes flowers, color, gestural line work, and personal anecdotes to share her feelings on influence, religion, and womanhood.
Her work has been featured in various publications and websites including The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Food Network, GoodGrit Magazine, and CommonCreativATL. In 2017 her first solo exhibition opened at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and in 2018 the Georgia Council for the Arts commissioned Khail to create a custom painting for then First Lady of Georgia, Sandra Deal. Khail’s work can be found in collections across the United States as well as exclusive collections for various companies and hotels including the Rosewood Baha Mar Resort, Whole Foods, and the Hotel del Coronado.
