For Pete's Sake is named for, our Son, Peter. I have a BA in Graphic Design and a strong retail background. I decided to work from home when Peter was one. Now, 20 years later...I am painting all of the time and am so blessed.

Peter is an important part of the business. He helps with every aspect of my business and is on his way to being a better artist than I am. =) When he was 2 ... He asked if he could "talk to me". What he really wanted was to tell me I had painted Buzz Lightyears buttons the wrong colors. He said, "if this little boy likes Buzz as much as I do, he is going to know you did it wrong". Thus he has been known, ever since, as my Quality Control Manager. Peter is now joining me on several projects and will illustrate your home or office to be drawn and painted on a custom piece.

Want something special? Send me a message and I'll get you set up.

Thanks for stopping by.
Susan

Add your hand painted jockey to a wreath this Derby. An original design by For Pete's Sake. My jockeys look great as a centerpiece on a table or in a wreath. Where will you hang yours?
New in the shop today. I just created my signature horse and jockey pattern into a door hanger. Derby countdown has begun.

About

Eat, sleep, paint

I started For Pete's Sake, when our one and only Child was born. When he was 10 months old our Babysitter quit and we decided I would stay home. I started to paint again for fun and to give as gifts. Long story short, I have been painting ever since. I have painted murals, furniture, wood, glass, plastic, pottery and people.
Pete awoke the artist within me and I have never looked back. Having my own business has allowed me the freedom to work around our family schedule.
Don't be fooled there are many days I paint as many hours as I am awake. I never feel like I work, because I LOVE every minute.
I feel very blessed and am thankful for the gift I have been given.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do custom work?
I sure do! Some of my favorite pieces have been a client request. The only limit we have to creating that special piece is our imagination.

Can I get my item personalized?
You bet. Personalization sets my items apart from the others. I love a good monogram and am happy to include a personal message on the back of my items. Personalization is always free of charge.


I do offer my items wholesale and give zip code protection.

You can currently find my work at some of these fine stores.

How will I know when my order is ready for pick up and where to come?
Once I have your order ready, I will send you my address and cell phone number. You can text me to arrange a time that is convenient for you. I live in St. Matthews.


Yes. If you order more than 6- 10 of certain items, I will offer you a discount and group the shipping to help you save. Just send me a message and I will set up a custom listing for you.

I am happy to do Corporate and Holiday bulk orders.


I ship my items USPS Priority mail or UPS. These cost a bit more, but include insurance and tracking. I want to make sure your item is received in perfect condition. If your shipping fee is less than $3.00 of what you paid, I will refund you the difference.


Almost always the answer is yes. I personally design, paint, glaze and fire every piece that you order. Send me a message and we can work out the design together.


Your pottery is handmade just for you. I use all lead-free, food safe glazes. For best care, I would recommend hand washing. My glazes are dishwasher safe, but can shorten the life of the piece.
Treat your purchase with the care you would any of your favorite items.


Yes. If you rightfully own the artwork, you can commission me to create a custom piece with your logo. I will not reproduce any copyrighted work such as sport team logos and trademarks.
