Do you ever feel that you have an innate need to be creative? I always have.

I have a BA in studio art and art history from Oklahoma State University and a MA in museum studies from Texas Tech University.

I enjoyed it so much, I started making pillows for my friends and family as gifts. When I considered opening an Etsy shop, they were all encouraging and supportive. I prayed about it, pondered over the idea...and I decided to go for it :)

Through opening Southern RoseMary, I have been pushed creatively, and I strive to make unique and creative pieces of art that my customers will truly enjoy. I am honored that you would consider having one of my creations in your home / comfy space / retreat from the world. I hope that my embroidery brings a smile to your face and takes your mind off of the cares of this world for a moment.
