About Sweetgum Home
Hi, I'm Sandra,
A little bit about me...
I'm the artist and founder of Sweetgum Home. New England has been my home for 22+ years. Before landing in New England, I called lots of different places home; New Jersey (where I grew up), Rhode Island (where I went to college), California, Florida, Seattle (where I went to grad school) and short stints in Mexico & Italy.
Prior to founding Sweetgum Home, I worked as an architect for nearly 20 years. As a result, I have a deep appreciation of how the design of the spaces we live in shapes our experiences. Kitchens, more than living rooms, are now the center of our homes. We spend more time in our kitchens and have more celebrations centered around the food we make there to share with one another than in any other room. For this reason I decided to focus on designing kitchen goods when I founded Sweetgum Home.
I studied Fine Arts and Landscape Architecture at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and Architecture at U.W. in Seattle, where I met my best friend & husband (who also happens to be an architect).
Sweetgum Home has collections of designs that I've created and designs from other artists I admire.Welcome to Sweetgum Home!
