Fine Art, Weddings, and Design
My name is Courtney Larsen, aka Spindles, and I am the artist, designer and maker behind They Call Me Spindles.
I'm a third generation Arizonan who loves all things desert, including the heat. I have a deep love for creating,
and am constantly exploring new mediums and finding different materials to incorporate into my work.
I spend my time designing artistic wedding invitations and calligraphy details, working on new paintings and drawings,
and creating signage for restaurants and businesses.
I painted this 8'x16' chalkboard mural backdrop for the White Sox and their 2020 Spring Training games in Arizona. I created the main illustrations and design, and then the players signed their names and added meaningful words and phrases. And the team took player portraits in front of the finished chalkboard mural.
I recently got to design and paint this large wall mural in an Air BnB house in Scottsdale, AZ. The theme of the house is girls getaway, so this pink desert mural is a natural fit. The lettering and the cacti are entirely drawn by hand and painted directly onto the wall.
