Katie says: I've been creating these happy suns since I was 15 years old; however, I was drawing them on paper. Little did I know that one day I would be painting that same face on metal garden art. It all started when my partner's dad gave me a metal tank that was in the shape of a sun and asked if I would paint it for him to put in his garden. I knew just the face to give the sun and it turns out it was a great success.
Since I painted that sun over 6 years ago, I have made many more as gifts. Through word of mouth, many others have asked to buy them. People say they add so much life to a garden, an outdoor space, or even inside their homes that I decided to begin producing them as a side business. I enjoy creating them and even more, enjoy the happiness they bring to any space. Each sun has a distinct personality, just like all of us. When it's been a difficult day and I step outside and see my sun smiling at me, how can I be down anymore? They truly bring fun and peace to any space.
