Sum Artifex translates to I am an Artist from Latin.

This shop began as a side gig while I did hair for 25 years. in 2012 I created a small business and began selling in a store front in Fargo in 2014.

With encouragement from that owner I began selling at markets and art fairs around Fargo.  Before the pandemic I created a website, which certainly came in handy during that time.

I went to a creative elementary school where I learned to sew, paint, work with clay, wood, linoleum carvings, lots of creative substances.  I found hair was a wonderful outlet for all of that creativity, until I was rear ended in 2016 and suffered a mild traumatic brain injury.  This injury prevents me from traditional employment still these many years later.  

Because of this, I have re-found my inner creative and let her loose on cork, fabric, canvas, tiny matchbox cards and other fun items.

I am grateful for everyone who support artists, any of us.
