Hi, I’m Megan Wells, the artist behind Makewells. I live and work in Fort Lauderdale, Florida...creating art each day that brightens up your world!
After a brief stint at Anthropologie as a display coordinator, and then 6 years teaching high school art, I jumped into the world of being a "full-time artist" shortly after my 30th birthday and I haven't looked back! Since then I've been painting murals, drawing letters, and painting flowers and I'm beyond thankful to call this my job!
In 2016, I released my first book, "Hand-Lettering: An Interactive Guide to the Art of Drawing Letters", with Peter Pauper Press.
In 2018, I wrote two more books! “Colorways: Acrylic Animals”, with Quarto Press, will be released in January 2019, and “Creative Bible Journaling”, with Peter Pauper Press, will be released in the summer of 2019.
I also teach a series of online classes; hand-lettering, color theory, composition, and funky florals - check them out here!
Since 2012, I've been blessed to work with the following clients:
Illustrated Faith, Harper Collins Christian Publishing, Zondervan, Workman Publishing, Peter Pauper Press, Arcade Media Group/Sony, Amber Lotus Publishing, Minted, Pottery Barn Kids, Pottery Barn Teen, She Reads Truth, Lynchburg Academy of Fine Arts, Sweet Briar College, Quarto Press/Walter Foster Publishing
