About Me

Hi, I'm Kelsey

Best Wishes (formerly known as Honey and the Hive) is a collection of artwork and intentionally created products meant to uplift and inspire you on the journey to meeting your highest self.  Born after a year of deep self reflection and discovery, Best Wishes is my humble offering to this world.
I began my career as an illustrator in 2013, from the kitchen table of a tiny two-bedroom apartment where I'd paint late into the night after putting my (much tinier then!) son to sleep.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that it would become what it has today.  While a lot has changed around here since those very humble beginnings, the goal has always been to use my art to shine light and positivity into the lives of others.  
I am deeply inspired by nature, spirituality, the cosmos, and human beings.  My work is a reflection of my personal journey through healing, and my greatest hope is that sharing these pieces of my heart and soul inspire and help you along your own healing journey.  I enjoy working with watercolor, acrylic, and gouache paint.
Best Wishes is a creative exploration of self shared with so much love and intention.  I hope that you find something here that resonates with your soul.
