  • Rainbow Mural for a kids bedroom | Morgan Atkinson fine art | Florence SC murals

    I can’t tell you how excited I am by the murals I have on my calendar in the next few weeks (some in our own new home and some for others). These are probably one of my very favorite projects to do and I just love being trusted creatively with other peoples walls! It’s such an honor to take a space and make it show your personalities!  
  • 1950’s ranch before/after and a video tour

    As many of you may know we are selling the house that we’ve called home for the past 7 years. While we’re excited for the next chapter for our family we also feel sentimental about leaving the home our babies came home from the hospital in, started crawling in, and gave us shelter through some of the sweetest moments of our lifetime. 
  • Bathroom Update | Florence SC Interior Mural Artist

    One room that we hadn’t touched since we moved in here is the half bath off of our main bedroom and I’ve been dreaming up a mural for the main wall in that room since I first started brainstorming ideas for it!  
  • DIY Valentine Printable / FREEBIE

    Valentines Day snuck up on us over here and I found myself scrambling to put together a fun valentine for Nora's classmates in preschool that still had that diy/handmade vibe I so love.  Last night while the girls were at AWANA I put together these simple treats and Nora is so excited to give them to her classmates this week!
  • Practical tips for keeping your little ones busy while you work // Florence SC Visual Artist

    Let me just start this post by saying that working at home with my kids around is no doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. It is taxing in a way that I never imagined. The constant pulling of my attention from a place of creativity and productivity to suddenly switching gears to manage little people’s emotions is the most intense rollercoaster ride I have ever been on and it WIPES ME OUT.

    if from the outside this ever appears to look “easy” in any way to you I want to clarify right here once and for all that it is NEVER easy. Beautiful? Absolutely. Fun? No doubt. A disaster at times? FOR SURE. Super rewarding? 100%. But easy? No. Not ever. Not even one day has it ever been “easy”.

    Motherhood is hard, motherhood + running an art business when your oldest kid is under the age of five is well... next level. ⠀
  • Baby Boy Atkinson // 33 weeks update

    To say this pregnancy has been a blur would be an understatement.  It has been, simply put, EVERYTHING.  Slow and quick,  Hard and simple, Painful and peace filled, defeating and up lifting.  It's been a rollercoaster in every sense of the word and I am just so thrilled to finally be nearing the end of this journey.  We officially have around 5 or 6 weeks until this baby arrives and I've got a ton of work to get done in that time.  There's an entire nursery that needs my attention, some prints and products I need to crank out to have ready for a super special launch next month, and so many snuggles and cuddles to give to my girls while it's just the three of us all day each day.

  • A simple reminder // Statement Silhouette Locket

    I wake up in the morning and hurriedly throw on clothes all while being pulled by my two girls to the kitchen, “hungry mama! Hungry!” I whip together something to appease them and I head back to finish getting dressed. Hair mostly in a mom bun, the bare minimum makeup (my go to eye shadow color is whatever is left on my brush from the day before), and lastly I put on my locket.⠀

    It’s weight is light but the reminder it brings is heavy. I go to start a load of laundry and as I reach to throw the pile of dirty clothes in it pings against my washer. That little ping of metal against metal, a simple reminder of who I’m washing clothes for.
