I’m Selena, a small-town Michigan creative entrepreneur. I’m a hand-letterer, shop owner, graphic designer, educator and full time dream chaser. My creative juices have been flowing all my life, from painting murals on my bedroom walls, to handing out paper flowers I hand crafted for my mom to dockering up my clothes with unique patterns. I fell in love with art from a very early age.
When I am not covered in paint, ink or watercolor – I love sipping chai lattes in quaint little coffee shops, or antiquing with my mom. My husband and I are always searching for a new netflix binge, and I can never have enough puppy cuddles from my cockapoo Sadie. I’m a gypsy soul who loves crossing items off my bucket list and finding any excuse to travel. I’ve jumped out of a perfectly good airplane, swam bat caves in Greece and rode horses on the beaches of Nassau.
I try to see the blessing in even the tiniest moments and I hope to inspire you through my art. Take a look at my work, or send me a note just to say hi. Thank you for supporting me and my dreams. Remember to always celebrate the small wins.
One of my favorite quotes to live by…
“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once; seize them. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Live your dream, and wear your passion. Life is short.” Thank you, Buried Life
