AGAIN! Remember when I did a post all about TSC READERS’ ART? SO fun for me to share YOU. And YOUR creativity.

SO HERE WE ARE AGAIN!

Basically the gist of my idea ( it came to me in the shower, HA! ) is to showcase what you guys love to create. Some of you are artists, some are bloggers/vloggers, some are graphic designers, some are entrepreneurs, ETC.

& I want to share your work with TSC Community. This is a place to inspire.

Anyway, today’s the second installment of the “creative spaces” idea. Today’s theme is up & coming artists— each of them designed a very Skinny Confidential-ish piece. & honestly WHATTTTTT, I can’t believe how amazing these phenomenally talented artists are, AGAIN- I was just shocked! They crushed it. A bunch of these pieces are going in my office. All their bios/contact info is below.

Oh! If you are a creative, please share what you do so I can plan the next creative feature on TSC. Want to hear about what you guys do, what drives you, your passions…you get it. Leave your websites, Instagrams, whatever below too. You guys always support me, I love to support you.

OK, ENJOY! FIRST UP, THE VERY TSC PIC ABOVE:

+ Bio: Ylfa Grönvold is an artist & illustrator from Iceland currently living in Copenhagen, Denmark. She graduated from the Scandinavian Academy of Fashion Design in Copenhagen in 2012. After graduating she set up to merge her two passions of illustration and fashion design, where her career then took off and opportunities arose to design and illustrate for various fashion houses, television shows, movies as well as bridal dresses and stationery design. Having a positive approach to life, living life to it’s fullest and taking every opportunity with open arms has been the blossom of her career & taken her places she could never have imagined.

Her artwork reflects the beauty she sees and the light she wants you to feel. Jenna creates from her studio in Raleigh, NC, which she shares with Gus & Lola, her Boston Terrier & French Bulldog.

+ Bio: Caleigh Bird is a contemporary realist artist living the dream on O’ahu in Hawaii. She has been studying art her entire life culminating in a Master’s Degree last year and has since become a popular custom portrait artist for both families and their four-legged friends. Because of her hectic life-of-an-artist schedule and frequent travels, Caleigh isn’t able to have any pets of her own, but she enjoys living vicariously through her clients and feels like she gets to have a special connection with each sweet furry she draws. When not busy drawing and painting in her little tropical valley studio, Caleigh’s fingers can be found getting dirty in her organic garden or twirling her hula hoop.

She recently had her art selected by Restoration Hardware’s new Modern Collection.

Chelsea Lundy x TSC | michael & lauryn

BY: Chelsea Lundy | WORK HERE | @chelsdrawsyou

+ Bio: In late 2015 in Canada’s capital, Chelsea Lundy began drawing her friends and favourite celebrities using a sketch app for fun. What began as a hobby quickly became a new passion. When she started her Instagram ( @chelsdrawsyou ) to showcase her finger paintings, the feedback was overwhelming. Requests started coming in, and, as her portfolio grew, so did demand for her artwork. She calls it finger painting because that’s exactly what it is – she sketches every single picture on her iPhone 6 using only her finger. Chelsea is constantly inspired by the people she draws, and she tries to capture each person’s (or animal’s!) aura through her artwork.
