Featured Artist Friday: Meet Sarah!
Posted on February 10 2017
Sarah is a Jesus loving, wine drinking, semi-hoarder, and lover of anyone who can make her laugh. She is the sassy lady behind Chalkfulloflove, a hand lettered goods shop started in 2014. Everything she creates is hand lettered by her in Austin, Texas.
We asked Sarah a few questions to help us get to know her more + here's what she said:
1. How does a typical day progress for you? / Do you have any morning rituals?
I am a very early riser, sometimes I will naturally wake up at 5 AM. Yikes, I know. I start every day with a cup of coffee, and usually it is my only cup of the day! I go over my emails and chart out my day and goals from there. You could say I am pretty scatter brained and usually will have to write things down to remember them and stay on task.
2. What kind of influence or role do you believe art currently has in society?
In my field or section of the art world, I am seeing so much interest in the development or skills of lettering! And I think that is so cool! When you do it for fun (with no pressure or deadlines) it can be so rewarding.
3. Do you do any research or look for inspiration when starting new work?
Yes! I try to stay up with the trends of the art world, but also will find a lot of inspiration with vintage finds. I always think about my ideal customer and decide whether she would like something, or what she is into at that time.
4. What is the best advice another artist gave to you?
I really look up to Val of Lily & Val and she has given me so much advice on the business side of things that I find invaluable!
5. What are your biggest goals for this year?
Biggest goals for this year would be to continue growing Chalkfulloflove. I think when you have one of those years like my second year of business that you grow so much, it is hard to beat that in the following years!
