About Lela Mac

I am in the process of retiring after teaching Art & Interior Design with the NC Community College system for about 30 years. One is required to take a minimum six month sabbatical from any state work once declaring the retirement process. When my six months have passed, I will continue to teach Art/Design as an on-line adjunct. My first classes taught were as a Graduate Assistant at ECU. Next, at the Community College through the Continuing Education Department (watercolor, drawing, color theory,). Later, I began teaching Art classes related to Interior Design, and served as the department chair. I was honored as the Carteret Community College 2003 recipient of the Excellence in Teaching award. Over the years, I have participated in various art shows in eastern North Carolina, including work displayed in Raleigh in the State Office of Community Colleges. I enjoy decorative/faux finish painting, and also painting on canvas. I was sponsored as an artist in the 2001 Red Wolf Ramble and granted an Honorable Mention for my NCSU Dining-sponsored “Canis Rufus Patrioticus”. A few other artistic endeavors include the illustration of a children’s book for a local author and fund-raiser art for Habitat for Humanity. Full Steam Ahead with my art!

Floyd’s 1921

I was invited to display some of my artwork in Floyd’s Restaurant located in Morehead City. So I’d like to give a large “shout out” and Thank You to Shana & Floyd!!

 If you haven’t experienced Floyd’s 1921 Restaurant, you should give it a try! Nestled near downtown, it’s like walking into your grandmama’s house for homemade everything!  Also, on their Patio is an event everyday!  It is open from 12pm til Close Tues-Sun. They also have live music most weekends.

Recently, an artist friend of mine wrote, “Just Do It”! If you’re waiting for the perfect inspiration, or the “right time” to create art, and enjoy the process… you may never get around to “getting your Art On”! So, I threw caution to the wind, even though there were a lot of other “more important” needs on my plate! The result: My Cigar Stool & My Puff and Chug mixed-media piece! FUN!
