Shop Spotlight: Evelyn Henson



Oh hey, chickadees! If there is one thing that I cannot get enough of, it's art! Today I am sharing with you a recent up and coming artist that has completely won the hearts of so many gal pals all over the world wide web these days! It seems as if no matter where I look, her artwork has popped up everywhere, and for good reason, too!  It's bright, cheerful, and oh so very whimsy!  I think it's safe to say that Evelyn Henson + her artwork have me completely smitten, that's for sure! I was tickled pink when I had a chance to have a lil chit-chat with the Evelyn Henson herself! You won't want to miss what she had to say about the lovely shop of hers:



Describe your brand in 5 words or less.

Optimistic, celebratory, bright, & joyful.


Why did you decide to open a shop?

I had just graduated from college and hadn't immediately found a job, so I just thought if I don't do this now, then when? I had a stack of paintings and drawings that I listed on Etsy, and it all slowly grew from there.  


What or who inspires you?

The colors and patterns we see in everyday. Sometimes it's a painting I see (I especially  love abstract art), a pretty interior, or a cute dress. It's hard to pinpoint specific examples...but usually I'm most struck by a new color scheme. 


What's one thing that no one knows about your shop?

I launched it from my parent's house! My first studio was in a spare room they had. 


What's a typical day for you like?

FUN! Every day is different. Usually, I get emails and boring business-y things out of the way in the morning with a cup of coffee, and focus on creative projects and painting in the afternoon (currently with the new Taylor Swift album on repeat).  


What have you learned about yourself since starting your business?

Hmmm probably how much meaning art gives to my life. 

What is your favorite product in your shop?

The map prints. They're so fun to mix and match! 

Who would you love to buy a piece of your art?

Oooohh someone famous! Mindy Kaling. Or Taylor Swift. It's exciting when anyone invests in my work, though! 


In case you can't get enough this little sweet thang, she even dished some of her personal favorites, too!




How completely and utterly adorable is Evelyn? I don't know about you chickadees, but  I cannot help but feel all warm + fuzzy inside when I catch a glimpse of her work! She sure does spread [a lot!] of sunshine this time of year! There are a number of pretties from her shop that are on my holiday must-list that I cannot wait to get my hands on! Oprah, take note because little lady will be making your list next year, too! Be sure to check out her snazzy products on her website and follow her on Instagram! The sneak peeks on a daily basis always tickle my fancy!
