Sweetest of Peas is the culmination of my life long passion and vision. As a little girl, I just wanted to draw and paint. As I grew, I began to seek more. Thankfully my thirst for creativity was supported and encouraged to spread my creative wings. I come from generations of artists and Do-It-Yourselfers so you can imagine I’ve had experience with a full range of mediums.
I entered the corporate world in my 20’s with the hope I would follow my passion full-time someday. Over the years I was fortunate to have worked under some of the finest executives and always spending my weekends and evenings fulfilling the creative need with freelance work – wall murals, commissioned art pieces, extensive floral displays and floral wedding work, large event decor and coordination and spent a wonderful 10 years cultivating an online terrarium business that shipped ready-made terrariums all over the United States. Needless to say I like to stay busy!
And then in 2015 my focus and priorities changed. The most amazing little creature arrived into this world – my son, born in the Spring of 2015. I decided to leave the working world to raise him and soon realized that my paint brushes were calling. He inspires me in a way I had not anticipated. His innocence, curiosity and creativity at such a young age is compelling and when he is content, I’m busy harnessing the wild creative energy and ideas. And then, Sweetest of Peas was created! Sometimes it feels too good to be true… I am a wife, a stepmother, a mother and now a full-time artist with the greatest muse!
Sweetest of Peas is part portfolio and part blog (soon to come). My art and children’s illustrations are playful, exciting and sweet. I enjoy watching an idea, experiencing a feeling, and with each layered stroke of color, the character comes to a magical life! Children’s illustrations are by far, the most thrilling and fulfilling subjects to paint; they allow me to unlock my own inner child creating silly and playful characters.
The lifestyle blog (soon to come) will feature a variety of DIY projects with a fresh spin and new inspiring ideas! I have an extensive creative resume and looking forward to sharing tips, tricks and inspiration! Stay tuned!
