Creating is my true passion and purpose.

It’s what gets me up in the morning, and keeps me up late into the night! Whether I’m crafting a brand, creating fonts, exploring form and function through small batch ceramics, making organic candles, or painting, you will almost always find me working up some kind of creative magic!! When I’m not creating, you’ll find me squeezing the absolute most out of life with my husband & our two children + two pups (pumpkin & duke), or exploring and photographing this beautiful, mysterious world.

I’m on the pursuit of designing a life that I love through conscious consideration, intentional living, and handcrafting beautiful art. I live for magical little moments that evoke nostalgia, all things Autumn, & spur of the moment road trips.

In addition to my design studio + lifestyle blog, I’m the creative director behind Shop Mel Volkmanan artisan studio focused on crafting beautiful, functional pieces to accompany you in your space — small batch ceramics, organic candles, original paintings, and limited edition prints handcrafted in-studio. I am humbled and excited to be sharing my work within private and public spaces all around the world.
