Hello Sparrow Studio
I am a self taught artist from Phoenix. I've been a creative soul all of my life and was inspired to start exploring and playing with art on canvas during my journey with Thyroid cancer. I had always wanted to be an artist, but I let fear keep me from pursuing my dreams. Three years ago, I decided to take a leap of faith and start making Mixed Media art full time.
As I was searching for a name for my business, I came across the Latin word "Spero" which translates to "hope". I love love love birds and sparrows also happen to be symbolic of "hope", thus Hello Sparrow Studio was born.
I love mixed media because it allows me to blend various layers and forms of art materials along with treasures that I find. I enjoy searching for beautiful papers and embellishing my work with my findings. From buttons and lace to old jewelry pieces, Mixed Media is the art of my heart. More recently, I've started to incorporate more painting into my art and have discovered a whole new found love. I’m learning more and more each and every day and I am super excited about growing as an artist and developing my painting style.
In the last 3 years, I made over 300 original pieces of art. Most of my pieces were initially sold at local markets, but in September of 2015 I opened my Etsy shop! It has been my dream that someday my work would find its way into a retail store. Woods and Whites could not be a more perfect fit.
I believe that we can all be ambassadors of inspiration and possibility and it is my hearts desire that I can bring messages of hope and joy to others through my art.
