A collaboration with other artists

Fill My Pot

This collaboration was born after I realized I enjoy decorating the little pots I paint, even more than painting the plants them selves! 

Meet our featured artists:

Sari Philipps


Tempe, AZ

Sari is our first returning artist from our first round of #fillmypot . In that time she has grown, and not just artistically! She shared with me that she has used art to help her on her journey. Something I can certainly relate to! Here, Sari has cleverly turned the pot upside down and placed it atop the cutest zombie I believe I’ve ever seen!


Shelby Moran

Lake in the Hills, IL

Shelby has collaged her little heart out to create this one of a kind piece using a nice mix of text and printed plants. The contrast of the organic shape of the leaves contrasting with the geometric feeling of the collaged text is wonderful! Shelby is a busy mom with an eye for design and fashion. You can find her on Instagram here.

Gabriel Chavez

Tempe, AZ

It seems that Gabe has been around since the start of ReGrain Studio just being a super supportive fan and collector.  (Thank you Gabe!)  When he told me that he wanted to participate in Fill My Pot, I was excited to see what he would send.  What a nice piece of work using collage technique in a beautifully graphic way!  


Laura Mallia

Baldivis, WA, Australia

Laura of @lamallia is by far one of my favoring illustration artists on Instagram.  Her creations are detailed, unique and very thoughtful.  Here, an octopus has filled this pot in a fantasy-like manner.  Go see what other surprises she has!  


Nicholle Madden-Adler

Scottsdale, AZ

Nicholle claims her self to be "a little crafty and a little crunchy".  She certainly dabbles in a bit of everything and I love her treatment of the pot!  Teeny tiny knots and weaving embellish this pot with contains some stag-horn cacti.  See what else she has been up to @momhatandmargaritas on Instagram.  


Najada Phoenix

Najada Is, up to this point our most long-distance Artist!  She hails from Malta, a tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea.

Allison Estergard

Palmer, AK

This artist has a beautiful knack for painting glaciers.  She might know a thing or two about them, she hails from Alaska!  I can't tell you how much I admire her technique of expertly painting a range of values of blue in order to achieve this effect.  I highly recommend you take a look at her collection of work, it is wonderful!  Find her here: @alestergard.
