I’ve really been loving everyone’s #marchmeetthemaker posts on instagram!
I’m a few days late, but here goes...
Hey, I’m Kristen. I’m a do-it-all kind of creator, working in illustration, fine art, a little bit of design, and I run a small business selling all kinds of natural/vegan skincare goodies over at (www.florahue.com).
So far, this year has been a very deep, introspective journey for me. I’ve been trying to decide where to put my energy and how I’d like to grow as a maker. This year you will most likely see me and my businesses shifting and transforming. This is a VERY normal thing for business owners to go through, however that doesn’t make it any easier. It can feel pretty confusing at times, so I appreciate all of your support and patience as I navigate through being an entrepreneur with many interests + passions.
Anyway, a bit about me...
I am OBSESSED with children’s books and vintage illustration.
My first love is ink drawings, but I adore watercolour, gouache and digital art as well
I am a resident of this earth and do what I can to protect and cherish it. I believe animals are sacred and plants are healing
I illustrated my first published children’s book when I was 20 and I CRINGE every time I flip through those pages 😂 But I’m very proud of it at the same time. I illustrated the whole thing on my laptop - WITHOUT A DRAWING TABLET. I simply used my finger and the trackpad to edit every page. No idea how I did that 😂
I love camping, travelling with my hubby, cooking yummy vegan meals, hanging out with friends and family, trying new teas, and feeling the sun on my face 🌞🌞🌞
and finally, I believe that everything happens as it should. I take each day as it comes and trust that we are all being guided from within 💛✨
Thanks for reading! I'm hoping to continue with Joanne Hawker's prompts as often as I can this month, so stay tuned!
