There are so many incredible Instagramers from the local Asheville area whose feeds I love, and I'm going to start sharing them with you here.
They inspire me to do or to think about new things. They ease a harried mind with beautiful art and photography. And they update on all the great places to eat, drink, shop, dance, and generally have fun in this town.
GO LOCAL on IG!

Jan Swanson has always been one of my very favorite local artists. Her work features amazing color choices. Her paintings have a wonderful humor and casualness that seriously and beautifully stand out, especially in eclectic modern spaces. I see her work, I love her work, it's really that simple.

Anastasia has a big talent for painting furniture, canvases, and on at least one occasion, her garage floor. She shares her wonderful energy, painting process, and sweet mommy wisdom (she's mom to 2 adorable, rambunctious young boys) on her feed. She's a gem of a person and I love following her posts and stories.

Caroline and Erin, the dynamic duo of professional content creation and photography services at Authentic Asheville, make you want to follow them. I mean literally - in a van, on a bike, or in hiking shoes - go where they go, see what they see, drink what they're having. Lucky for this shopgirl, they share their travels and fun times via their gorgeous photos and go-everywhere feed.

Laura just opened the doors to her new real estate brokerage in town, Panashe, and so far, her feed is wonderful. The branding is spot on, and the homes she's finding for her clients are gorgeous. She's got a sophistication that comes through in her style and that serves her clients. She is such an inspiration!
