Paprika Southern, founded by Bevin Valentine Jalbert and Siobhan Egan, is a southern lifestyle magazine celebrating the art and style of the South. With an emphasis on high-caliber writing and stunning visuals, it offers thoughtful and in-depth profiles and analysis.

Bevin Valentine Jalbert (M.F.A., photography, 2009)
Bevin arrived in Savannah almost a decade ago and hasn’t been able to tear herself away since. She was raised in eastern North Carolina, attended college at Hollins University in the foothills of the Blue Ridge in Virginia, and, with the exceptions of sojourns in New Mexico and France, has lived in the South her entire life, and wouldn’t have it any other way. With a background in art history and photography, as well as an interest in fashion and styling, she acts as art director for Paprika Southern’s styled shoots and provides editorial direction to the magazine. She enjoys watching Taylor Swift videos with her cat.
Siobhan Egan (M.F.A., photography, 2010)
A native of Yonkers, New York, Siobhan moved to Savannah for graduate school in 2005. She discovered she enjoyed a non-snow shoveling life and decided to stick around the South for the foreseeable future. With a background in journalism and photojournalism, and her love of fine art, she is excited to bring all of her experiences together with Paprika Southern. Siobhan has an unhealthy obsession with cheese, reading young adult novels, the NY Yankees, and she will forever be an Irish dancer.
