Small Business Spotlight: Eden Flora


Small Business Spotlight: Eden Flora

We are so excited for our next installment of Small Business Spotlight featuring Eden Flora! Eden is an Alabama native currently residing in Oxford, Mississippi with her husband and sons. You can read and learn more about Eden over on her website!

Starting Wednesday, May 18th, we will be including a complimentary signed original 5x7 pairing from Eden in each online order while supplies last. 

Q: When did you develop a love for painting?

EF: I have loved painting since I was a little girl. I can't remember a time that I didn't enjoy creating. My parents fostered my interest from an early age, and art making has always been a solace for me.

Q: What materials do you use in your work?

EF: I use mostly gouache (which is an opaque watercolor material). But I also add in watercolors, india ink and some acrylics.

Q: From where do you draw your inspiration?

EF: I'm a detail oriented person, so I can often fixate on a tiny idea that I want to study and grow. I am inspired by scripture and love taking a concept about God's truth and using my artwork to study and teach on the concept.

Q: Any business leaders or artists that inspire or influence you and your brand?

EF: Emily Jeffords is a very talented painter and teacher who has been instrumental in the growth of my business. Julie aka the playdough lady of Young, Wild and Friedman, a fellow mom and small business owner, inspires me with her willingness to flex and grow. Lynne Millar, a gorgeous oil painter, inspires me to paint the things I want to; anything can be beautiful if you care about it.

Q: What can we look forward to seeing from your brand in the near future?

EF: I typically have three large releases of collection paintings throughout the year, so stay tuned for Summer and Winter releases! I hope to offer some new, fresh products for the holidays too!
