I have a Pinterest board called "Frame Me" dedicated to pictures of art prints and paintings I wish I could frame and instantly hang on my wall! I have a gallery wall in my room at home, but as I'm starting to think how I want to decorate my room for next year, I know I want a lot of art and paintings hung to give off inspiration. I plan to keep my room pretty white and basic, so I want to create a focal point full of color. I recently discovered Evelyn Henson and I can't help but adore her work.
Her work consists of floral paintings, map prints, lucite trays and other darling art prints. She is a young artist who turned her hobby into a career. I've always admired young business women and I'm constantly inspired by girls like Evelyn.
Meet Evelyn. She first started painting after attempting a picture of a floral bouquet for a Mother's Day gift. She enjoyed it so much she pursued other paintings, studied art history in college and then started selling her work in May of 2013. Since then, she has been featured in Matchbook Magazine, Girls of Lincoln Park, The Abroad Guide and Southern Views Magazine. You can purchase her work from her website or on Etsy.
My favorite pieces Evelyn does, and what originally made me discover her, are her map prints. She has various cities that she customizes to include notable landmarks of each place. I've been stalking DC bloggers as I anxiously await this summer and came across someone who instagrammed a gallery wall with the DC map print. *hint hint birthday present idea mom!* Above are some of my favorite cities that Evelyn has illustrated.
Make sure and check out Evelyn's site to see more of her work. Also take a peek at her blog. She posts fun DIYs, tips on styling her paintings, and free printables like these adorable Mother's Day cards.
