Hi there! I'm Kelsey, the illustrator and designer behind Honey and the Hive.
For me, the best feeling in the world is transforming a blank piece of paper into something that's lively and beautiful. I like to make art that is inspiring, uplifting, and most of all... fun! Making art makes me happy, and there's nothing that feels as good as seeing my work make other people happy too!  
Honey and the Hive was born in 2013 as a way for me to share my passion of creating with others.  Behind each piece you see here are hours of brainstorming, sketching, and carefully painting each little detail - brush in hand.  When you purchase something from Honey and the Hive, you're receiving much more than a piece of artwork or some cool accessories - you're receiving all of the trial and error, the absolute joy in seeing the final vision come to life, and the endless amount of love that is poured into every last piece.  But most importantly, you're fueling the the passion of an artist and allowing me another day of living my dreams with these paint covered hands.

So thank you for stopping by Honey and the Hive and letting me make the world a little cuter.  Whether you've come to get something awesome to keep for yourself or share with your pals, I'm just so happy you're here.
