My name is Sarah and I am the face behind Sarah McAlpine Art. My intention was to never start an Art business, but I was encouraged by a friend to start a page about my art journey and then after selling some canvas's at a local gallery show, I was hooked. I had already completed two business courses but the intention was never to do this! ...but why not as this is what I LOVE doing!!
I have always loved to draw and I usually spent time on this activity at least once a day. My favourite things to draw were houses, animals and princesses! I loved entering art competitions too!
Over time my products have changed and I do add some in now and then. I expect this is just a need to be creative in all areas and try new things!
I live in Rotorua with my husband and our three children. I have worked in childcare for 18 years and still hold a part-time job in an ECE centre which is also a joy to do. The child care aspect is why I love to create my peg dolls and fluffy cups and now vinyls. My business keeps me busy. As well as designing and creating, I am also in charge of stock, photographing, website, invoicing, marketing, packaging, posting and attending markets.
Its great to have you here and shopping from my store.
