January Color Inspiration: Charleston, South Carolina

Walking around Charleston, I snapped photos of every building and scene that inspired me, and I’ve used those photos to create color palettes I am so excited to use in my art or simply stick in my Pinterest mood boards for future home inspo. You’re welcome to use them too, in whatever way you please, just make sure to tag me so I can see what you come up with!

Abstract Art + Lettering on Wood with Walnut Hollow

Lately, I've been playing with various ways to bring my two favorite forms of art together: "abstract" acrylic painting and lettering. Lots of artists I follow on Instagram do this brilliantly (my favorite being Caroline of Made Vibrant), but I am searching for my own brand of art that mixes these two loves of mine!

When Should I Pick Up My Brush Pen?

Today, I am giving *my answer* to a question I receive A.LOT. And that is: when should I lift my pen? Is there a rule? What's the deal?

And while that is a flawed thought process in some ways, in other ways, it has helped me develop my own style in the end, and I'm thankful for that!

My DIY Camera Set-Up for Filming and Flat Lays

Hey y'all! Today, I am sharing a much-requested video and blog post about my DIY, affordable (aka: kind of ugly) camera set-up. 

When I first purchased my Canon camera for filming tutorial videos and classes, I quickly discovered that just a tripod (albeit a really nice one) simply wasn't cutting the mustard for filming a bird's eye view of my desk for both videos and flat lays.
