Welcome!
I am a self-taught artist who grew up in Wyoming. I have been a handmade artisan for 31 years. I have always enjoyed color in it's many different forms. When I was 25, my neighbor (during a conversation through the backyard fence) invited me to join a class in her basement ceramic studio.

I opened a retail gift store here in Gillette in 1999, and operated it until 2005. I was then employed outside of the home until July of 2010. I knew when I quit in 2010, I would open an Etsy shop. The name Sweet Meadow Designs comes from my love of peace and tranquility. ( I could envision the peaceful meadow in my thoughts). It is my place where I have FUN being creative. I enjoy designing simple items. My creative style leans toward minimalist ,folk art, boho, cottage chic, . I love to sew, paint, and create altered digital images. I truly enjoy the interaction with customers and other Etsy shop owners . I guess you could say retail is in my blood! You will also find me on Etsy at my other 2 shops: lemondropprints- and quiltpanelsforyou.
Thank you for stopping by!
