About Me
---------------------------------------------------

I have always loved art. I've dabbed in oil painting, acrylic, gouache, and most recently, watercolor. I love the fluidity of watercolor. I have also always loved handlettering, but I didn't realize that it had a name until last year. I'm the kind of person who would doodle all over their notes in school to help myself stay awake and focused.

I started spending more time working on handlettering near the beginning of 2016. I found out I was pregnant in March, and got hit pretty hard with morning (ALL DAY) sickness shortly after. That slowed my progress as I spent most days laying on the couch or sleeping. After my baby was born near the end of 2016, I quickly realized I needed a hobby, and I picked back up with brush calligraphy and watercolor. Now, I generally work on painting and orders during nap time and after bedtime.

My husband and I have been married for 6 years. He's a great supporter of my art, especially financially! :) I love being a mom and love spending time with my son. He is such a happy and fun baby and I just love him so much! I also have a dog who was my first baby. We rescued him from the humane society when he was 4. He's a sweetheart! I love cooking and baking, traveling, spending time with family, going on walks, trying new restaurants, and watching TV.

Why Black Currants?
---------------------------------------------------
When I was 4, my family lived in England for 6 months. Since that time, the taste and smell of black currant juice has been super nostalgic for me. I wanted a shop name that reflected a part of me, but that was unique as well.

Thanks for stopping by my shop! I'm so glad you're here. Check out my listings and if you don't see something you like, email me for a custom order! hello {at} blackcurrantcreative.com.
