Sketch + Sentiment

Sketch + Sentiment

Sketch + Sentiment – Hand-drawn goods that mean more.

Creating goods by hand is an art form that seems to come second nature to me, as my mother taught me to sew at age 5, and things spiraled from there. My businesses have changed over the years, but my need to create is everlasting.

After earning a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, I had a successful 10 year career in the design industry, culminating in my role as Senior Designer over home textiles. I designed for a variety of companies, ranging from international fashion accessory corporations, to national department stores, to start-up home decor companies. I married into the Army in 2016, and I had to give up life in the big city to move to an Army base with no design jobs available. I always felt a pull to create products with more meaning than the mass produced goods I’d previously helped design, so I took the lack of fashion design jobs as a sign to set off on a small business adventure. Sketch + Sentiment was created!

12th and Blossom

12th and Blossom

12th and Blossom – Inspired Art, Jewelry, Stationery, and Gifts

While the leap into a career as a full-time artist took a little time (I was 38 years old!), I’ve been an artist my entire life. Escaping an abusive first marriage realigned my priorities, including my faith. When my son was born on December 12th (Shout out to Our Lady of Guadalupe!), I began the journey to become the person I was meant to be…in other words: On the 12th day of the 12th month, I began to BLOSSOM. St. Irenaeus wrote, “The glory of God is man fully alive.” I can’t help but glorify God through my work, and I hope that my work helps others feel that same joy.

Fiat To Holiness

Fiat To Holiness

Fiat To Holiness – Catholic Decorations

I am Alejandra, a young adult Catholic. I am an active volunteer in the young adult ministry at my local cathedral. Where I am able to be God’s instrument to teach young adults about the civilization of love. When I was 18 years old, a beloved Priest helped me discover my creative gift from God. Gift-giving is my love language through handmade items. I have had a desire to return to school but don’t have the financial resources. An early evening in Holy Hour, I prayed about how I would return to school. God called me to use those creative talents to have my small business bloom.
