KORIE HEROLD

ARTIST + FOUNDER OF THE WEEKEND TYPE

 

meet the artist

Hi, I’m Korie, I have an affinity for plants and leaves, though, oddly enough, I lack a green thumb. I’m a big fan of brunch, fresh flowers, and connecting with others. I love making our house a home, and I think the home is such an important place to nourish. I’m the gal behind The Weekend Type, which began as a calligraphy business, and has since expanded to include more art mediums, exploration, and creating for the sake of the process. My skillset comes from a blend of studies at Abilene Christian University(both in graphic design and interior design), going to workshops from skilled artists I admire, as well as simple trial and error in my own studio. I will forever be a student of the arts, and that alone keeps my curiosity for trying new things piqued!

a word to the young artists

Keep your head down, and don’t worry about what your neighbor is doing with their work. Explore it for yourself, figure out what you like, and what you can’t stop thinking about creating. Is it a certain medium you just can’t get enough of? Use that. Is it a certain subject you obsess over? Let it shine through your art. Whatever you do, don’t stop exploring.
