Founder/CEO of Amanda Wilson Arts Co., Henning, Minnesota

I was born on a warm day in June, with a paintbrush in one hand and a hammer in the other. Just kidding, but ever since I can remember I have been interested in all things art. I always knew I wanted a creative job where I could use my hands to create beautiful things. I earned my BFA in painting and drawing and an AAS in graphic design. I find myself gravitating towards many creative outlets. I currently do custom paintings and drawings, refinish furniture, graphic design work, home renovation projects, and am working on writing and illustrating a children’s book. I love keeping my mind and hands busy.

I find that if you are interested in something, learning it is part of the fun. One of the best ways to learn is through trial and error and hands-on experience.

One of the highlights of my business was filing my business license. Taking the leap to be self-employed was scary, but also so exciting and empowering.

I find that one of the hardest things about running my business is having a healthy work-life balance. It can be easy to work late hours and work on the weekends since the amount of work you put in, is the amount you’ll get out of it. Creating boundaries and making time for yourself and your family is so important.

I love that Handmade Home Co. has given artists a platform to showcase and sell their work and isn’t over saturated with millions of vendors where it is easy to get lost in the mix. Handmade Home Co. truly cares about their artists.
