August Artist of the Month: Cullen Cornett!

Something Else That's New for Impulsive!

We have been wanting to do something special for our artists since we first opened the shop in October of 2018. Thank you for being patient as we've been acclimating ourselves to this new adventure with all of you! Finally, we are finally ready to kick off our "Artist of the Month" program!

Every month we will be featuring a new artist from all of the amazingly talented people that have trusted us with their wonderful works of art. In the posts, we will be telling you a little more about them, we will have an interview section, and then what you can expect from this month regarding their artwork. Be on the look out for special deals and other awesome things for you!

The reason why we wanted to get this going is to connect our artist to our community. If you come into the shop, you're not going to get many chances to meet some of the amazing people behind your favorite items. So this is our way of making that happen!

We hope you like this new addition to our blog story! Now, onto our artist for this month!

C:I studied art all through my school and college years, and have always been a creative person, but I think I became an "artist" when I started selling my work at New Hope Market in Chapel Hill. That was the start of my business, and it has flourished, with it's bumps in the road, ever since!

H:If you could work in any other area of art (besides your own), what would it be and why?

C:I have a huge passion for interior and graphic design- I love the idea of being an interior decorator! I'm always doing DIY and decorating projects in my house, much to the chagrin of my husband, who says,"I can never find anything after you organize!"

H:You're a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? C:As a new crayon, I would be "Robin's Egg Blue." I absolutely love the shade of blue on baby robin eggs- my colleague has a nest in his yard and sends me pictures of the eggs. It is such a light, airy, greenish-blue, one that only nature could produce!

H:What is your go-to strategy for overcoming the thoughts of "your work isn't good enough" or "I am not good enough to
