SARAH GREENE

Heyo! My name is Sarah and I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my little works here. A little about myself.... I was born in the charming, town of Waukon, Iowa. Spent my entire childhood there with some travels within the States with my family. Not a clue where the passion for art and traveling came from, I've dreamt of around-the-globe travel, exotic places to visit, art and food to experience and not a care in the world in order to accomplish these dreams. 

In 2007, I graduated high school and as they say, "the rest is history." BUT- this story is far from ending! I've experienced living in Texas, Alaska and Missouri and now we're in Germany! I've discovered so many new things about myself on this journey we call Life. The thoughts and ideas of some of these designs come from my surroundings. The world is never-ending and I can't wait to see what adventure is next. 

My husband is an Active Duty military member and we have 3 dogs: Stella (who currently lives with my husband's parents in Idaho -- not allowed to PCS with pitbulls to Germany), Lucy, and Rozlin. The girls are a whirlwind of energy, mostly Roz, and a lot of fun to be around! We miss Stella dearly but know she is being spoiled as all good grand-dogs should be. :) 

Currently, I've been given the opportunity to work from home for my previous employer from Fort Leonard Wood. This is a very rare opportunity given to military spouses since we move around so much. Very, very grateful for the job/income and the opportunity to branch out my own experiences. It's been an adventure of its own to learn how to work from home! I'm also working for a military insignia and tactical supplier to the base we live on as a side hustle. 

Then, to top it all off, I'm also helping people start up their own websites, marketing plans for Instagram, virtual assistant needs, and creating crafts for days!! I have been self-teaching on anything I can get my hands on online... Through LinkedIn Learning, Google courses, I even took a Graphic Design course that was free through some sketchy website via a startup in Ireland! LOL! I watch a lot of YouTube videos when it comes to the settings on my camera or how to use different tricks in Lightroom or Premiere. Guys... I refuse to stop learning! If there's information out there that's going to help me with my next inspiration, I'm going to try to get my hands on it. 

Let me know if you have any questions on commissions, designs, or about life of a military spouse! There is no joke in drinking coffee all day as I take it very seriously. [insert all the coffee emojis here] Have an excellent day out there and make good choices! The world is a crazy place. 

When one rises up from the ashes, there is growth more beautiful than the disaster left behind. -Sarah Greene
