Each Arhaus catalog is artfully crafted to tell our story through thoughtful product, design, and composition. It’s created to inspire—often used by our customers and designers as a guide for helping turn a house into a home. In the case of Maizie Clarke, a talented artist based in Louisville, Kentucky, Arhaus environments have inspired some of her recent projects as the subject for her art.
Maize is a trained interior and exhibition designer who enjoys illustrating the built environment through watercolor. For Maize, watercolor painting helps bring to life the warmth and whimsy she strives to capture from each unique house portrait.
“I love illustrating Arhaus interiors because the individual pieces are unique, they layer well with existing pieces, avoiding a generic look and fit with a variety of different styles.”
Her Arhaus environment paintings combine Maizie’s design knowledge and her passion for illustration. She begins by sketching out the form, then artfully layers in each element of design.
“I admire Arhaus’ commitment to quality as well as their dedication to functionality, that’s important to me with my own company—we create wholesale collections for museums and corporations—high-quality pieces that are also durable to use every day.”
Finding something you connect with is the key to being inspired, and that key can unlock amazing things—from a photo of a room that brings you joy, to a whimsical custom home portrait.
