Hey, everyone! I'm back with another artist feature, in celebration of my 1,000 follower milestone on Instagram!
Please let me introduce...
Casey - @thepeonyletteress
Who are you? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am Casey with The Peony Letteress. I have been lettering for a little over a year now. I’m constantly learning and trying new things/tools, but my primary focus is watercolor lettering.
Which Instagram accounts inspire you, and why?
I’m really inspired by Jenna with @monvoirco because of her amazing [watercolour] skills. Brigitte with @lynnhavendesigns has amazing digital [watercolour] lettering pieces and an amazing lettering kit as well. Kristen with @letter.me.happy has an amazing style and uses [watercolours] so flawlessly.
What helps inspire you when you’re not feeling motivated to create?
Taking a walk and enjoying nature or the [colours] around me, running ideas off friends, or Pinterest are usually my go tos. Occasionally a challenge will get my creative juices flowing again as well.
Describe your lettering style.
I have a very [colourful], playful, bouncy type style. I like my lettering to reflect happiness and fun/joy to those who see it.
What makes you unique? Why should people follow you?
I am constantly learning and trying new things. I also really love helping others with any lettering questions they may have. I always want to make people feel like they can reach out to me and know that I will help them to the best of my ability.
What’s your best Instagram tip?
Don’t stress about how many followers you have and also don’t expect people to follow you. If you want followers you should make genuine connections with others. However, your art should be your main focus, and if you’re focused on followers more than your art, it will show and deter people from your page.
What are your calligra-goals for the next year?
My biggest goal is to get my website and shop up and running. I would also like to focus on pointed pen more than I have.
Where can we find you on social media?
Thanks to Casey for participating in the artist feature series! I highly recommend that you check out her inspirational work.
