5 Free (and Gorgeous) WordPress Themes

I’m sure you’re sick of hearing how important it is to have a platform and some sort of social media site when you are an author or illustrator.

But even more important than having a social media site, is the look and feel of it. This site should represent you as an artist, an author, or a freelancer. Whether you’re looking for a WordPress theme to pair with your New Year’s outlook or you’re window shopping, here are five WordPress layouts that I found.

All are completely free and completely gorgeous.

5 Free (and Gorgeous) WordPress Themes


Sugar and Spice – I love this theme for it’s clean, yet feminine design. It’s actually the same theme that I have on my site currently. Below is a screenshot, but you can actually download it and preview it from it’s site. Check out this theme!



Balloons – This one is simple and some may find it too simple. I think it’s perfect for a beginner (or for a person who likes simplicity). You can find it and download it here.



WP Anniversary – This theme is a lot busier than the other two I posted, but I really like how much you can personalize this theme. Check it out here.



Asteria – I really like Asteria for how clean the WordPress theme is and I like the slider too. Check it out and download it for free here!




Stargazer – The creators of this theme call it “The Best Theme in the Universe.” It has a few impressive SEO Optimization tools and more. Check it out here.



What do you guys think?
