I came across Stephanie Chinn’s artwork and immediately adored it. If you read my post on creating a mood board for my first apartment, you know that I’m chomping at the bit to get a space of my own, and that I want lots and lots of art in my space.
And if you’re here on Indierella right now, you probably know that I really really love discovering and championing people who make creative things. If you love something, share it with people! That brings us to Stephanie Chinn and her awesome work.
Stephanie is an artist and illustrator who has created artwork for books, logos, websites, social media content, bloggers (hey hey), and more! Something she says perfectly that I really love is that “she explores what it means to be human by breaking down awkward, yet funny experiences.”
Her Instagram feed is where a most of her creative content lives (as many of us can relate to), and I’m so pumped to show you some of her fun, inspiring prints:
I love how her style is a little quirky and has a lot of honesty. To go into an analytical mode for a second, I wouldn’t say Stephanie’s art is a kind of Feminist brand, but if you’re a young, modern feminist with a love of color and lightheartedness, then you’ve found your niche!

@callmeacreator is back in action with a new inspiring interview with @amandalederle from @createbeing . . 🥰One of the greatest gifts I’ve been given while pursuing this project is community. I didn’t set out to create the relationships I have built through this project, but I have. Some of my closest confidants in Toronto are people I’ve met through pursuing this vision that I had. A vision that highlighted artists and entrepreneurs who were willing to be vulnerable with me about what challenges they face in being a creative and share their story about how they came to be. . Amanda (@amandalederle) from @createbeing did just that. She is creating a space that leans into making mental health a less taboo topic. She shares her own person story with us in this interview and some insight on how she carved out a space for herself to heal and create by pursing this dream and by giving back to people. She shares her story of what her mission is and the mission behind @createbeing . .

Last week on @callmeacreator . . "When I am sitting around and messing with my sketchbook and I find something good starts forming on the page, I sort of zone out and let my hand finish the work. That sounds weird but it’s very meditative and I find my best stuff comes out when that happens. It’s like a diary, I can put anything in there and I don’t have to show anyone if I don’t want to." ✨ Lucas is an illustrator based out of Toronto, ON.

I love how art can connect to people, and honestly, looking at Stephanie’s illustrations simply make me happy. You really don’t have to be an Art Historian to love all kinds of art, and you certainly don’t have to be that to support your local artists.
Make sure you contact Stephanie Chinn for her rates and promotions to get your own unique piece of art for all your design purposes! You can find her on her website, her store, her blog, plus Facebook, and Instagram!
