About the Artist

Meet Hadden.

Your home is an extension of you and should share in your vivid personality. Artwork isn't meant to just be sparkly and colorful. It is meant to make you smile and bring you joy everyday. 

With my dazzling acrylic creations made on repurposed Louis Vuitton canvas handbags, I create artwork that likes to have fun just like you.

My Inspiration...

Growing up in the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama I dreamt of a more colorful and unapologetic life.  Today, my work encompasses the sparkling oddities that brought me joy in my adolescence painted upon repurposed Louis Vuitton canvas handbags.
Many of my collections are inspired by things that I enjoyed exploring whilst growing up in the South. 
Common themes in my work are natural elements and specimens such as : diamonds and gemstones, insects, and botanics. In addition, I have an affinity for southern classics like chinoiserie, fine china, and pound cake that I am excited to express in future collections.

It all started when...

I’ve always had a penchant for color and composition, as well as a deep passion for art, fashion and sustainability. Constantly creating as a child, I grew to focus on art more seriously in high school. I opted to get my Bachelor's degree in Anthropology at the Auburn University- all while continuing to express myself informally on canvas.  Realizing that I needed to do something more creative, I got my MBA at the University of Alabama in hopes of pairing my business degree with my love of painting to create a successful art business. Soon after relocating to Denver, CO with my partner, I created Hadden & Ev Illustrations where I personalized leather goods such as handbags, wallets, jackets, and more. Unfortunately, I launched my business at the start of 2020. During that first year, I focused on learning about the luxury market, honing my skills, and gaining valuable insights on my client's needs and desires.

 With that in mind, in 2021 I made the decision to refocus on my real passions and create a business that was an expression of me.
