My guest today is Consuelo Reinitz of Pink Fries Paperie. She tells us her story: how she got into watercolors and art (a very unexpected hobby turned Etsy shop) and what it's like juggling her creative work with caring for her 9-month-old son Lucas.
I've known Consuelo since I was in diapers, but I never in a million years would've guessed she had an interest in art—and neither did she! I spend the majority of this interview digging into how she unsurfaced this love for watercolors and creativity.
During our conversation, we cover:
- How a joke turned into an Etsy shop
- What drives her watercolor aesthetic
- Finding the time and space to create, produce and market her work
- Discovering the reason for her past "laziness" and uncovering what she's passionate about
- Where she pulls her inspiration from and finding her unique artistic expression
My favorite moment is when Consuelo says:
"This isn't just about selling art on Etsy. This is about me and my journey and what I'm enjoying."
Here's everything we mention during the show:
- Austin Kleon's book Steal Like An Artist
- David Rock's book Your Brain At Work
- Elizabeth Gilbert's book Big Magic
Thanks for listening! And a huge thanks to Consuelo for joining me on this episode #026 of Process.

PS. I'll be back next week with another solo episode—an update on my own creative process, the projects I'm working on, and everything that's going on in between. I love recording the raw solo episodes, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :-)
