Charlotte Turtle, In-house Graphic Designer

Charlotte spends most of her days with her two little boys checking in on the elephants at the Memphis Zoo and digging big holes in their yard. Charlotte met Whitney while they were both living in the dreamy little town of Bowling Green, Kentucky and loves being able to play a part in sharing Whitney's art with the world.

Julia Harkins, Lead Seamstress

Julia grew up all over Tennessee (Hi Chatt, Jackson, Knoxville, & the Boro!), but learned to sew on an island in Maine. She now calls South Memphis home with her husband and 3 kiddos (the caboose is just now getting into all the pins and scissors lying around). She has worked remotely as a seamstress for companies all over the US (thank you Instagram for the job connections) for the past 6 years, but has loved connecting with Whitney locally and dreaming up ways to transform the Whitney Winkler art portfolio into wearable and functional textile art.

Aislinn Bowles, Visual Merchandising / Seamstress

Aislinn has been sewing and making stuff as a hobby since childhood. She is married and homeschools her two kiddos, now expressing her artistic side whenever time and children cooperate. She also loves trees, costumes, animals, singing, glitter, theology, the Muppets, and dancing in the kitchen to loud music.

Rachel Gorman, Seamstress

Rachel lives in Memphis with her husband and two sweet girls! Rachel’s mom is a professional seamstress, so she doesn’t remember a time in her life when she wasn’t around sewing machines and fabric. She enjoys quilting and garment sewing, and she’s overjoyed to be a part of Whitney’s team!

Bridget Winkler, Seamstress

Bridget lives with her husband and three kiddos in Champaign, Illinois. She spends her days walking the neighborhood with her kids, trying to tame the backyard garden, and drinking coffee. She loves seeking out a good podcast, creative projects and big ideas.
