Hi! Im kellan!

I’m an artist, mimosa enthusiast, and the creator of Mimosas and Picasso. Through blog posts, weekly emails, and enjoyable recipes, I'm here to show you the joy in craft art and to help you find the confidence you need to pursue what matters to you.

Here’s my advice: Have a little faith and when that doesn’t work, have a lot of mimosas!
— Blair Waldorf

 My Story

I know how stressful life can be and I know that a lot of my struggles are caused by the pressure I put upon myself. Throughout my life, I’ve held myself back from doing what I truly wanted to do. Mostly because I was letting life happen to me instead of for me.

Thankfully, I figured out how I could create a blissful, more fulfilling life for myself. By prioritizing my mental well-being, taking time to enjoy the fun in life and by creating a work-life balance. By doing all of that, I’ve learned that this journey doesn’t have to be so stressful.

Before starting this blog I had the privilege of living in Philadelphia while studying for my BFA in Craft Materials Studies with a Concentration in Fibers. I know… its a mouthful. Shortly after graduating I had a terrible loss in my immediate family.. Losing my brother shook our family to its core. I quickly moved back home to Virginia Beach and lost sight of what I wanted in life.

My brother was and forever will be the most amazing person. I truly looked up to him. Especially when it came to doing what you wanted and owning your own destiny. Ian did care what anyone thought, he was going to be and do whatever made him happy.

Shortly before Mimosas & Picasso was created, I took a long look at my life, who I was and where I wanted to go. I wanted to get back into craft, learn to love myself again and actually make a name for myself.

So, as someone who has been where you are, let me tell you, you have more power over your life than you think you do. That's why everything I share on Mimosas & Picasso is created to help you find the joy in your everyday life.

When Im not busy with Mimosas & Picasso, you can catch me snuggling with my cats, scrolling through Pinterest or enjoying a lot well deserved day on the beach..With a nice glass of champagne of course!

I love watching reruns of Psych, stuffing my face with healthy & unhealthy snacks and sipping multiple cups of coffee all day, every day.
