Meet Kate of Sweet Pea Murals

1.  Please tell us your name and the name of your business.

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!

Thanks Kate!  Check out more of her fabulous work at:
