About Art by Freebird

Welcome to "Art by Freebird"

Thank you for your your interest in my photography and art. All photos and art designs are original works by me - Rhonda Skains, aka Freebird. I am also known as Lake Wylie Sunsets.  Follow us out on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/lakewylie.sunsets.7. We are a community of sunset lovers. We would love for you to join our beautiful community and lake family. We love sunsets!


I grew up in Texas (Austin, Lake Travis and other lakes) and moved to Charlotte, NC in April 2006.  I have always had a love for the water because my parents were swimming and ski instructors. I was water skiing at two years of age with my father. I spent most of my life sailing, boating, skiing, swimming, camping, and any water activity I could experience. Everywhere I have lived I've gravitated to the water.  So when I moved to North Carolina I discovered Lake Wylie which is also know as than Catawba River and runs between North and South Carolina.  I found the most beautiful place on Lake Wylie that has provided me with the opportunity to see amazing sunsets.  Many of the photos and art collections displayed on my website are Lake Wylie Sunsets.  

When I was young art was my love, however we all know it doesn't always pay the bills so I obtain degrees in computer technology and have worked in that industry since I was 18 years of age.  I knew one day I would again become the artist I aspire to be.   So now I would love to share with you all the beautiful photos, art and crafts depicting the beauty I have captured of the Lake Wylie Sunsets
