Brown Pigeon creator Meagan Lewis is the guest for Episode 171. Brown Pigeon is a handmade rubber stamp company that Meagan created several years ago. Meagan’s dog Elvis is the unofficial second guest on the show (and we even find out why you do not touch his paws). Meagan also curates art for The Urban Hive and WAL.
In this episode of the show I chat with Meagan about the culture shock of moving to Salt Lake City as a child; the experience of living in a closet while spending a summer in New York City; how to deal with your childhood dog being given away at a yard sale; why you do not want a company named “Hairy, Inc”; why the everyday beauty of a brown pigeon inspired her to name her creative endeavor after it; our mutual love for Delta Letterpress; the surprise she gets from folks when they learn she makes stamps for a living; and the power of Etsy and Instagram to help grow her business.
Thank you for listening, Listeners, and thank you for sharing, Sharers, to my conversation with Meagan Brown. Be sure to follow her creative project Brown Pigeon on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.
