About Alisha

Alisha Gratehouse

Hello! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Alisha and I am an artist, art instructor, creator of several online art courses, and author of A Life That Flourishes.

My days are filled with creating, painting, writing, drinking lots of tea, laughing with (and at) my family, and spontaneously bursting forth into song.

I grew up in a home that was built before the Civil War. It was a big, gracious, Southern home that served as a church parsonage in the early 1800s (and was even part of the Underground Railroad). Living in this house gave me a connection to the past and a love for old, beautiful, sometimes even tattered things. I have always felt more “at home” with antiques, vintage pieces, and with well-loved, timeworn furnishings.

It was in this home that I learned to draw, sew, decorate and create alongside my mother. I still love drawing, painting, hand lettering, designing my own art pieces and making lots of big messes (it’s the clean-up I have trouble with)! I also love taking vintage or antique pieces and repurposing them into something entirely new and beautiful.

Here I offer my original artwork, prints, art courses, and more. I would love for you to visit me at my blog, Flourish, where I hope you will be encouraged to live an abundant and satisfying life – spirit, soul and body (John 10:10). There you’ll find a few of my craft tutorials, free printables, podcast, and lots of other randomness.
