Sharon is a painter who moved here from Chicago. She started out going to school for commercial art, which I realize is what we called it before it was graphic design. The story for the inspiration that started her interest in painting? Grace Jones. One of my favorite reasons so far. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.
Hanifa had a career in banking. During that time she went to school for Jewelry and Silversmithing. She made jewelry and other pieces for friends. Then, when she retired from banking she decided to launch her own boutique line.
