Kristy Rice is on a mission to inspire Art for Joy’s Sake– and she wants you to pick up a paint brush and experience the joy of creating art for no one else but yourself. My friend Kristy has been an artist since the humble age of 6, where her parents could find her under the covers with a flashlight creating art.
Over the last 15 years, she has parlayed her artistic talent into a variety of highly successful businesses: she’s the owner of Momental Designs, a stationery company that creates hand painted works of art for all the moments in life worth celebrating, a published author of 8 books (soon to be 9!), and the creator of so many physical products that feature her artistic talents.
Kristy’s artwork has been commissioned by celebrities like Sean Parker, Jessica Simpson and Katy Perry– while her artwork has been featured everywhere from Good Morning America to Martha Stewart Weddings.
In today’s episode, we dive deeper into the several projects Kristy’s explored: how she wrote her first 8 books, how she scored licensing deals with big brands like BHLDN, T.J. Maxx and Target, and what it’s really like to create and sell physical products.
In this episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast, Kristy Rice shares:
- How she discovered and uncovered her purpose during a creative drought / burnout
- The premise behind Art for Joy’s Sake — which is Kristy’s mission to encourage you to create and enjoy art for the simple sake of art — not for the likes, status or anything else — but for pure joy
- The power of having a personal brand and how she developed hers
- How you should start intentionally creating a personal brand
