about me the artyologist

Hello and Welcome! I’m Nicole and I’m so glad you’ve stopped in.

So, what is “The Artyologist”? Well it’s a play on words, (archaeologist) which pretty much sums up both my love for enjoying and creating art, and my love for eras past. This blog is where I share fashion, vintage, photography and other creative pursuits.

I enjoy pretty things and I am a fashion fanatic who dresses in vintage, or vintage inspired fashions for the most part. My wardrobe is not full of true vintage pieces though, so I rely on styling modern pieces, or creating new pieces with a vintage flair, in order to get that vintage “look”. I love history, and more specifically the history of fashion- finding out where our clothes came from and also how to incorporate historical touches into outfits today. I also believe that ethical and responsible fashion is the only option, so I mainly shop second hand, create my own garments, or buy ethically produced items whenever I can. And I love to create my own garments (when I can find the time to sew). Basically, fashion is my passion (and don’t you just hate how those two words rhyme?!)

I am also equally passionate about all different kind of creativity. I love fine art photography and am a “sometimes water-colourist”. I enjoy decorating and homemaking, and I also love to craft and sew. This blog is my creative outlet, where I share my findings, creations and what I’m learning, in hopes that you might be able to learn something too.

I live in rural Alberta, Canada, am saved by the Grace of Christ, who loved me first, and I ‘m glad for the chance to share this with all of you.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit, and I hope you enjoy!
