There are some people that I “meet” on instagram that become more than just a person to follow. They become my friend. I absolutely adore following and keeping in touch with Amanda from @stellar_co. She hand paints letters, plaques, and vinyls. She closely works with the customer to create a unique and one of a kind piece for their home. She takes her time with each piece to ensure that quality is the main focus and not quantity.
I asked my friend to write a little about her shop and what got her to start living out her passion.
“Stellar Co. was born in November 2014 after a fire sparked in me to use my creativity and my talents toward something I love. I did the art thing through school and never found my comfort zone. I always have been interested in calligraphy as well! I have always been very do-it-yourself and “I can make that” or redecorating my room and home constantly! I am inspired by my little man, who will be a year and a half old this month. His joy and energy is so contagious and sometimes I am bursting at the seams to share that energy with others and what better way to bring it all together than by decorating other’s lives with inspiring, humorous and motivational words. I have a passion for this and put all of myself into every piece that I hand paint. And I am constantly surrounded by amazing and beautiful people who keep me inspired and push me to be my best self. I am loving watching this hobby and love for art turn into a business.”
