Christie's Profile

About

My name is Christie and I was born to be creative :). I love to come up with a creative approach to a conventional need. My mother has been a great influence on me. She has always been very creative and resourceful. And she tells me that my great-grandmother was a terrific seamstress, too (which I do not claim to be!).

In addition to what you see in my studio, I have designed unconventional lamps, window coverings, table accessories and wall hangings. My inspiration comes from pretty much everything around me.

I left the corporate world in 2001. Although I have been creative in varying degrees ever since I can remember, now I get to be creative full time - a total dream come true. I live with my husband, a woodworker, and 2 dogs in beautiful, rural Chatham County, North Carolina…

Why "Sweetbriar"? When I was 5 years old, we moved to Pennsylvania and we lived on Sweetbriar Road. I always loved the sound of that. So when I was naming my studio, I decided on that name since I like the sound and it doesn't hem me in (no pun intended :) ) to any particular medium. (I do like variety!)
