Hello! I’m Jaclyn. A photographer, an artist, someone who leads a mostly vegan lifestyle, and currently residing in Wichita, Kansas. Thank you for visiting my little nook on the internet.

This blog of mine is a place for me to share my artwork, inspire you to make it along with me (or be inspired to make your own art) and connect with other creative folks.

I want to encourage you to create. Even if you feel like you can’t, you can make something more than a stick figure (for reals, you totally can). I am here to inspire you though photos, DIYs, home decor and interviews with other creatives. I’ll help you get your creative juices flowing, encourage you to add in a little bit of charm and personality into your art (be it a funny saying or, gasp, a cuss word), and share my artwork too because why not.

My hope for you is to find art that makes you smile, that makes you feel something that you want to feel everyday. Then, if you can, buy it, hang it up in your home and now you can feel that feeling every damn day of your life. Or better yet, make some of your own art for your walls. Then when your friends come over, you can totally brag and say, “I made that and so can you!”

I want you to share your creative journey with others, read other peoples creative lives (oh lookie here, a round up of some amazing creative people for you to read right meow, hehe), and connect with others. Here in Wichita, the art world is growing and I want to be a part of it and take you along with me. So join me in reading my blog posts and let’s get creating!

A bit of history: I was born and raised in Kansas. I graduated with a Bachelors in Photography and Graphic Design. I am a High School Sweetheart to my boyfriend, who helped me tremendously with getting this blog started (love you T!). We have 2 cute black and white kitties named Posy and LeeLoo, who run the household. Ha! And I am living my dream everyday, happy to be alive.
