High Point University (HPU) alumna Alex Stanley is making the most of her degree both in the working world and in her spare time by starting her own business, the school reports. SimplyLucky is Stanley's online business where she sells hand-made jewelry and photography.
After graduating in 2007, Stanley took a marketing position in Mount Airy, North Carolina. Since then, she has been involved with Virginia politics and was appointed to work at the Governor's Mansion with the First Lady of Virginia. After moving to Richmond, Stanley became inspired to pursue her artistic endeavors.
As a studio art major at HPU, Stanley was able to explore many facets of the art world. She attributes her love and appreciation to the professors who helped her.
"HPU taught me so many different forms of art and multiple ways of using them," said Stanley. "I think my art is unique. Working in a historical atmosphere has motivated me to design; I think you can really see that in my jewelry and photography."
