HELLO! Glad you're here.
I'm Sara. I am a southwest Virginia born and raised girl who really loves the craft of making. I grew up with two main loves: paintbrush in my hand and people by my side. Design was the sweet spot I found where I could do both with purpose. I find joy when I am able to create a solution or a smile. I love the process as much as the product, maybe more. My grandmother is an artist and taught me from a young age a sense of creative freedom and expression. She's still my greatest source of inspiration - if my studio can be as full as hers one day I'll feel I've made it. I once heard this quote, "Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do." I'd like to think this little creative space can lend itself to just that.
I am lucky enough to be married to my middle school sweetheart! His humor won me over in 8th grade and still does- it's just a little better now. We somehow still get to be near our families who love and know us best. We are newlyweds and love learning and growing through this gift of marriage. I have a degree in Industrial Design from Virginia Tech and believe fully that design makes a difference - in both little ways and big. I feel blessed to be a steward of it. I'm a sucker for puppies, (especially our new lil guy, Brady) mountains, fresh flowers, textures, all things miniature, colorful or covered in chocolate. And I have a feeling I'd love you too, I'm a fan of new friends. xoxo
