Kate of Sweet Pea Murals and MORE!
2. What can shoppers expect to see at the Birds of a Feather Fair from your booth?
At the fair, I will be offering “mini murals” - an assortment of canvases and plaques that range from inspirational quotes to seasonal decoration, and of course, i am always happy to take orders for personalized items! (these are my favorite and shipping to you is free!) Most of my artwork is specifically custom made for children, but I have a few things for adults too :)
3. Tell us some more about yourself.
I am the mother to one 5 year old sweet pea! I started this company when my little one was born back in 2006. I wanted THE perfect baby nursery and decided that I would try painting something special for her. After all, I had been drawing and painting most of my life and I had a degree from one of the best art colleges in the country (Ringling College of Art and Design). So how hard could it be?! It turns out, I really enjoyed doing this project and the comments from family and friends about her room were all so positive. I could definitely get used to doing things like this but I only had one child and only so many walls in my house!
Eventually, I expanded on my love of painting walls and started doing “mini murals” This was a great way for me to share my creativity with clients who weren’t local and/or didn’t want something quite so permanent. So here I am now, making cute spaces and ‘ready to hang’ art for other little sweet peas and loving every minute of it!
