About

A Hobby Evolves...

My name is Sarah Duggan and I am a watercolor artist, living and working in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

Since the time I could hold a crayon, I have been making art.
I discovered watercolor as a teenager and fell in love with the medium. I was encouraged and supported by my art teachers and parents to pursue painting, and spent a great deal of my free time through those years exploring my style.

Through my teenage years and into adult hood, painting was a constant source of relaxation and an outlet for any emotion. Pulling out my paint set has always been a "happy space" for me. From 18-30 I moved around a lot, throughout Canada, to South Korea and throughout Asia, to South Florida and then home again to Nova Scotia. I have always painted, wherever I've been, most of my inspiration coming from whatever wildlife and nature surrounds me.

It was in 2013, while living in Florida with my husband, that i heard a story about Etsy on NPR. I decided to open a shop to just for fun! I was working full time as a teacher at the time and started by posting some of my travel photos, and a few little illustrations, hand made cards and eventually prints.

Later that year we moved home to Nova Scotia to have our first child. I turned to painting any time I could during my year of maternity, and because going back to work would also mean finding a new job, I thought it could be a great opportunity to stay home with Oliver and have a crack at starting a real business! My sales on Etsy had started to pick up a bit during that year, and as a result, a few local shops were carrying my work. It felt like the right time.

With the incredible support of my husband, we decided to turn the hobby into a full time career. Through a lot of hard work, commitment, learning and support, my business has grown each year, both on Etsy and in my community, and I feel so fortunate to say that it is how I make a living now. Painting things that make me happy and sharing them with others is extremely rewarding and a true labor of love.
Sarah Duggan Creative Works is my full time gig (second to parenting my two little ones, Oliver and Lillian). I work out of my home studio in Dartmouth and am constantly navigating the work/life balance of being a small business owner (but hey, aren't we all?)

Etsy has enabled me to have this freedom with my family and follow a dream. I am incredibly grateful for this journey and look forward to seeing what's next!
Thank you for supporting my work, my business and allowing me to do what I love.

Sincerely, and Always Grateful,
Sarah
