If you read nothing else, this is the most important thing I want you to know:
The Art Bar™ is a dream that, like most dreams, is decades in the making. I've been an artist and entrepreneur all my life, beginning with creating my first stationery line when I was five. From there, I took a calligraphy class when I was 10, went to school to be come a graphic designer, graphic designed, worked in advertising, started creating custom wedding invitations, started addressing said invitations, and fell madly in love with lettering (and Dugan). After years of focusing on custom work and event stationery and blogging about my projects, I decided to step out in faith and turn my portfolio blog and custom calligraphy business into an "official" online art shop in 2012. I have a high value of surrounding myself with meaningful and inspiring things, and it's my heart's desire to use the gifts God's blessed me with in order to make meaningful art to delight, comfort and inspire others!
In October 2018, the shop Lindsay Letters® became The Art Bar™, and you can read more about that transition here. Same great stuff and heart, but with a refined vision to focus on art, and bringing it to you in an attainable, sustainable, affordable, and beautiful way! I am grateful to God for this opportunity, and I'm grateful to YOU for your support!
I love authenticity, iced coffee, playing with my kids Eva Love (6) and Phoenix Brave (2) and our new rescue pup Lucy. I love trying out new recipes, wandering antique malls, outside, exploring fun spots in Madison with my youth pastor husband and creating – mostly with iPad or brush in hand, music on, candle going, and more iced coffee. Check out the blog for the latest, and come say hi over on Instagram – I'd love to meet you!
