Hey! I'm the artist, photographer, designer and blogger (everything!) for 726 SQFT. Originally from Richmond, VA, I now live in Atlanta, GA with my Cockapoo, Maxwell (you'll see him around the blog!).
For as long as I can remember I've always had an interest in art whether it was drawing, painting or cutting up old clothes and sewing them into tiny outfits for my dolls. In high school, I gained an interest in film photography and painting and began entering my work into competitions--that's when I realized my true love for the arts and decided on art school! I received my BFA in Fashion Design from the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University where I continued to express myself artistically through various mediums, mainly fashion design.
726 SQFT started during my "Quarter Life Crisis" that many of us already have or are yet to experience. I Iearned so much about myself at 25 and really fell in love with my passions, and who I was as a person, while learning to overcome life obstacles and growing into adulthood (all while keeping a smile!). At times I felt limited but I learned that life is really limitless. During this time I purchased my first home and while 726 SQFT is not the exact size of my space, it's a reminder that you are not confined to your living space, job, city, state or even country. 726 SQFT is about being limitless in limited spaces, stepping outside of your comfort zone every now and then, and truly living the life you want to live no matter what. Do things you love and that make you a better you!
My blog is dedicated to my late grandfather, Charlie E. Wilson, whose birthday was 7/26, my birthday backwards (6/27).
Stick around for a while and join me as I share my favorite parts of my lifestyle with you! I hope you enjoy--yay!
