NELLIE LOVES ARTISTS x Kaylan Butelyn
shirt pictured: Lady On A Mission
What caught my eye about Kaylan Buteyn first was that she was in grad school as a fine-art painter. There is something about someone who wants to be a student of their craft in the day-and-age of the Internet. I love lifelong learners.
Buteyn's art is created in a backyard studio--and she shared the journey of that build with her Instagram followers. The fact that she invites her followers and collectors into her story is admirable.
The community and podcast Artist/Mother was borne out of Buteyn's work and now features the voices of other artist/mothers in the world. The fact that Buteyn uses her voice to give a voice to others makes her art world-shaking.
