Cady Carnes was born into a technicolor world. When she was four years-old, Cady wanted crayons and chalk for her birthday. When other seven year-olds were going to the circus, Cady was at the pottery painting studio. When other children were at the swimming pool, Cady was spending her summers at the High Museum art camp. A lifelong creator, Cady majored in Graphic Design at the University of Georgia. She spent several years working in advertising after graduation, but that came to an end with the birth of her first child. Two more children and a brief career as a pre-school teacher sent Cady in search of a way to return to her first loves– lettering and color. That’s when she gave birth to Pitter Platters.
