About Lowcountry Sketches & and Its Artists

Lowcountry Sketches

Welcome to Lowcountry Sketches.  Our mission is to provide you with a memory of Charleston and its wonderful charm through various forms of art.  We achieve this by offering Charleston and Lowcountry art through various medias; pen & ink prints and note cards, giclee prints and paintings, Charleston historic and Civil War maps and nautical charts. We also offer unique hospitality gifts & wedding invitations utilizing our pen and ink images.

Lowcountry Sketches was started back in the the fall of 2005 when artist Lowry Coe, at the age of 78, did a pen and ink sketch of Lownes Grove Plantation in Charleston, where his daughter, Jennifer Coe married Allyn Graham. The sketch was printed, double matted, and given to every guest who attended the wedding. Based on phenomenal feedback from the wedding attendees, Allyn decided to start Lowcountry Sketches and put his new father-in-law to work sketching.  First, Lowry sketched some of the churches in Charleston and the surrounding area which become very popular with brides and grooms and their  families. There is something very unique about a pen and ink sketch where that special wedding took place. Two years later, Lowry expanded his work to include plantations, historic homes, historic sites, maritime images, colleges, ships, ..... and I guess you would say the rest is history. Today, Lowcountry Sketches has over 175 pen and inks sketches that are sold as prints (framed or unframed), notecards, custom made "save the date" and/or wedding invitations, and are included in many of the maps we offer. Lowcontry Sketches' beautiful pen & ink work can be found through some of Charleston's finest retail and gift stores, college bookstores, local plantations, and many Charleston area art festivals and events.
