I am an artist, a designer and a mom.
After graduating college on the East Coast, I worked in the advertising field for several years before moving to
Michigan in 2000.
While continuing in graphic design and trend forecasting upon arriving in Michigan, I needed to make a change
and follow my innate, God-given love for painting. Sweet Sprout was created in 2011 to combine two passions: painting and graphic design.
My paintings are done primarily on canvas in acrylic ink, but I also use acrylics, oils and watercolor, with my latest
works including crochet pieces I create hand-in-hand to incorporate onto each painting.
As a trained graphic designer I have found a passion not only for painting but also digital work, typography and everything paper. After completing a painting, often times I scan each one and turn some of them into select
stationery items: invitations, calendars, notebooks...
My ultimate goal is to show my kids to find their passion and make it their life work.
I work out of my home studio and (currently) solely do the design, printing and shipping along with product photography.
