Courtney Potter

Raleigh, NC
(314) 803-5842

Courtney Potter is a process-based abstract painter based in Raleigh, NC. She began painting as a way to process her emotions during a difficult season marked by death, grief, hope, and renewal. By saying yes to her creative urges, painting emerged as a practice allowing her to reconnect to her creativity, inner wisdom, and deepest desires. She hopes that her work will bring energy, inspiration, and healing to others, reminding viewers of their own authentic power and voice in the midst of dark places.

Potter grew up in St. Louis and moved to North Carolina to attend The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s photojournalism program. Her documentary projects have taken her across the world and have earned her multiple awards. After graduation Potter started her own photography business, and in 2012 co-founded a second company, The Birth Collective, which provides birth photography and advocacy journalism for mothers, doulas, and childbirth educators. Still an active photographer, Potter is excited to incorporate studio art into her creative repertoire.
