Copper House North is the writing division of Christina Steward Art since 2022.
When my husband, Chad, and I first discovered our house 20+ years ago, it made my heart sing. It had rustic, red-orange bricks and shiny, copper awnings. I was drawn to the various colors and textures, though I didn’t understand why.
You see, it was still six years before I began to study design. Years before I understood how colors work together. I just knew that house was the one.
Fast-forward to 2011, when I’d take a metalsmithing class and learn to make jewelry. I was drawn to copper, time and again, for its beautiful, warm color.
Copper was a recurring theme for me, even though I wasn’t aware of it, yet.
Over the next ten years, I’d learn that any color that contains red is my favorite (hello red, orange, and purple – I love you!). I’d also learn my creative interests were many. From drawing, painting, metalsmithing, knitting, writing, and then some, I’ve explored it all.
I’d also learn valuable lessons about living with intention, pursuing dreams, and becoming the best version of myself possible.
It’s from this deep well of creativity and passion for life that I’ll be writing here, to encourage you on your own journey.
At the start of 2022, I was preparing to self-publish my first book, The Miracle Farm. I needed to choose a name for the “publishing house”, and wanted something more professional-sounding than just my name.
After much brainstorming and googling to see what names were available, I landed on “Copper House North”.
Once again, my heart sang. It would become the publishing house for the book, and another legal name for my creative business.
Why “North”? I’m glad you asked.
We live just north of Atlanta. And, I love the visual image of positive, upward movement, don’t you?
Little did I know that in late 2022, after deep thinking on where I wanted to go with my work, a new blog would be the answer.
I brainstormed names again but, this time, came up short.
That’s when Chad matter-of-factly said, “Don’t you already have the website for Copper House North?”
I tilted my head…and a blog was born.
I hope you’re better off because of it, too.
