EVELYN'S STORY

Born in Columbus, GA, Evelyn grew up with a love for all things creative. She spent her childhood inventing stories on her Grandmother's typewriter and illustrating pictures to go along with them. She quickly became obsessed with handwriting and made tiny lettering the class room trend in 3rd grade. Though she was eventually asked to stay after class because the teacher couldn't read her spelling quizzes, she was always known for having pretty handwriting. In middle school, she mastered Microsoft's paint program and spent her free time creating colorful patterns she could use as binder covers, powerpoint backgrounds, cards and as wallpaper in her school locker. By the time she graduated high school, she had a binder filled with over a thousand different patterns.

In college, she couldn't quite figure out her path, but knew she wanted to be surrounded by art in some way. So, she double majored in Art History and Communication Studies. Fortuitously, two friends gave Evelyn a box of craft paints they didn't want as they were moving out for the summer. Inspired, she decided she would try painting a bouquet of flowers as a Mother's Day gift. That was 2012, and she hasn't put down the paint brush since.

After graduating from college in 2013, Evelyn decided to open a small Etsy shop for fun. 
At the time, she didn't know what she was going to do with her life, so let's just say she's very thankful that her Etsy shop turned out to be more successful than her post-grad job hunt. It started with just a few art prints on Etsy, and has slowly evolved into a colorful & happy brand that has been seen in Glamour, Domino, Redbook, People, and more
