Hi I’m Sara, thanks for visiting. I thought I’d pop down a few things about me that may or may not be interesting, I’ll let you be the judge.
WHO AM I?
Well, I’m a 37 year old mam to my gorgeous boy, Oscar and wife to Paul. We’ve been together now more years than we haven’t which is pretty amazing. We live in County Durham with our two dogs.
WHY DID YOU START THE BUSINESS?
I’ve always been pretty creative, I loved art at school and secretly wished I pursue it further. I started drawing again during lockdown this year, it was a bit of an escape and I absolutely loved it and realised I wasn’t half bad. I’ve also wanted to challenge myself and see if I can run my own business successfully. Guess only time will tell.
IS THIS YOUR MAIN JOB?
Absolutely not, and to be honest I wouldn’t want it to be. I feel very lucky that my 9-5 is a job I love. I work as a manager of a museum. Museums have been my life for almost 20 years and I’m so passionate about the importance of heritage and culture, especially to the lives of children. I’m not going to lie, juggling a full time job and this business is tough, thank goodness I’m a bit of an insomniac!
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
I’m definitely always evolving with my art and continuing to learn. I only ever create prints that I love and would put in my home. I’m particularly drawn to fun nursery prints and I love drawing some of my travel destinations. You’ll also notice I love pastel colours!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Hmm, spare time? What’s that? only joking. When I do have some time I love to go to museums, art galleries and national trust properties with the family. I also tend to like to stay at home in my pjs and binge watch Netflix. I’m a little obsessed with true crime programmes and cheesy reality shows.
So there you go, that’s a bit about me. Always happy to chat more so feel free to message me.
