NAME: Kelli Larson (aka Kelli Murray)
CITY: San Diego
SPOUSE: Sam Larson
CAREER: Illustrator / Graphic Designer
DESIGN PIECE: I think my favorite illustration to date is a recent one I did titled "Avery". I think it's a good representation of where I am at as an artist and where I want to go. It's soft and feminine and evokes a kind of emotion that I strive to portray in a lot of my work.
STYLE PREFERENCE: I tend to lean toward bohemian or vintage pieces....but I definitely like to mix it up. I've never been one to stick to a particular look or trend....instead, I wear what I am feeling. Lately, I've found myself gravitating more to simple colors and silhouettes....timeless pieces that mesh with my on-the-go lifestyle as a mom.
SPARE TIME CHOICES: Ironically, paint (which I also do as part of my job sometimes)....go to the beach with my family, shop, craft and consume pizza (in moderation, kind of) :)
NEXT BIG ADVENTURE: My husband and I are actually going into business together and opening our own brick and mortar retail space! We are just at the beginning stages and plan on having the doors open by November 1st. It will be a curated retail concept and community space dedicated to premium brands with a focus on American made goods. It's a huge undertaking and big risk for us....but we are following our hearts and look forward to what this next year will hold! We can't wait to reveal what we've been working on!
YOU OUGHTA KNOW: I was cured of celiac's disease when I was pregnant with my daughter Rylee and it pretty much changed my life. I'm a borderline workaholic and have a really hard time sitting still. The beach is my happy place and there is no where else I'd rather be than there with my family. I'm a total homebody. I love Jesus. And the one piece of advice I'd give to anyone is to take chances. There's no better time than yesterday to follow your dreams.
Thanks Kelli! xo
