Of Love + Light is getting a whole new revamp.


I’m Alana Garrigues, artist, writer, playful creative, and founder of Of Love + Light. When I started this website, I was just stepping out of journalism and web writing into something new… telling stories on my terms.

For a while, I thought that would mean continuing to tell your stories, stories of inspiration and wonder. But then, do you know what happened? The more I drifted away from journalism and pivoted toward visual arts, and the older I became, the more I realized I’d grown away from sharing your stories, and grown into sharing my own.

So what you’ll find here will be more personal.

I make no promise of frequency to blog or share specific stories, but I will be sharing ways to connect with me and with one another: original art and prints for sale, creativity kits you can buy, writing or journals that I create, and workshops to be held over Zoom… and one day, once again, in person.

In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and send me a message to say hello. If you’d like to be placed on my mailing list to be notified of new art, writing or event announcements, or just a letter from my heart, drop your email address in my DMs over there.
