Savonna Atkins

Savonna Nicole Atkins is an Atlanta-based painter and mixed-media artist. Through abstract paintings and mixed-media textile work, Atkins explores memories, self-concept, motherhood, and connection to the natural world. Her paintings feature layered abundance and high texture amidst sheer subtle washes and delicate details. Brushstrokes accumulate and meander between transparent and opaque layers. Her compositions reference imagined landscapes, childhood memories, and life experience as a primary caregiver of two young children.

Atkins received an MFA in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Atlanta in 2015. She has exhibited her work in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, California, and Hong Kong. Seven paintings and sculptures by Atkins belong to the SCAD Savannah and SCAD Hong Kong permanent collections. Additionally, her work is in private collections in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Massachusetts, Texas, Arizona, California, and South Korea.
