Q&A with an artist: Kelly Horton (The Colouring Collective)

Next up in my #ArtistsSupportingArtists blog series is Kelly Horton AKA The Colouring Collective. She is the multi-disciplined artist behind the popular Little Darlings colouring book series available on Amazon and Etsy, and I was amazed to discover how she juggles her career as an artist around being a super busy Mum – a real life Super Woman!

Kelly has also generously gifted you 10% off everything in her Etsy store (link at the bottom of the post) and has given Creative Happy Life Club members 3 gorgeous Little Darlings to colour in. Enjoy!

Q&A with an artist: Charlotte Trimm (By Charlie's Hand)

This month I’m fan girling all over the place because I’m interviewing Charlie, the rainbow and tea fuelled beauty behind By Charlie’s Hand.

Charlie may not realise this, but when I first began my Etsy store a few years ago it was her work that inspired me to try my hand at selling paper cut commission pieces. Admittedly, my paper cutting phase didn’t last that long because I realised that enjoyed the drawing part more than the cutting (hence venturing into colouring books instead), but she was certainly someone who made me think “I can do this too!”.

Q&A with an artist: Emily j. Taylor (Ejits)

Emily Taylor, the incredible illustrator behind the utterly cute brand Ejits, is a Bristol-born creative (like myself) that I met at a local Etsy seminar. I recall falling in LOVE with her cute enamel pin characters, and I knowing instantly that I’d be a life-long Instagram stalker of her work!

For Creative Happy Life Club members, Emily has gifted 3 absolutely adorable pages from her newest colouring book (hello, cute critters), and also gives details below on how you can enter a big giveaway to celebrate the launch of her brand spankin’ new website!

Read on to find out more about Emily’s career path, her design process, and how she balances her creative work alongside protecting her energy as an introvert…

Q&A with an artist: Kelly O'Gorman (KOG Creative)

Kelly O'Gorman is someone that I truly admire as an artist. Her style is one that I wish I could emulate myself, but quite frankly, it's not within my remit at all. I guess we all have our unique talents as artists, and Kelly's illustration work is something I can admire from afar but accept that I'll never be able to draw like her…which is why I’ve been fan-girling all over the place ever since she accepted the offer of an interview!

Q&A with an artist: Saskja Cook (Sassy Colouring)

Recently, I had a huge brainwave about starting a movement where I bring the artists of the colouring world closer together.

I've decided to call this movement #ArtistsSupportingArtists, and the core premise is that I would reach out to incredible artists and interview them to dig a little deeper into the story behind their art, help colourists get to know them on a more personal level, and promote their online stores or colouring groups.

The first artist I thought to reach out to was Deborah Muller, as she was in fact the very first artist that offered me some generous words of wisdom 2 years ago when I was starting on my own artist journey.

I'm super excited to share her interview with you because she her personality shines through no end! There are a few giggles along the way too ;)

She's also generously gifted you 20% off in her Etsy store (more details at the bottom of the blog post), plus you can grab yourself some colouring goodies by heading to the freebie area on her website. Deborah does an amazing job of capturing childish innocence and happiness in her illustrations.
