“When someone gets excited, and they can visualize exactly where they are going to put my artworks, that’s when I feel like the long hours are really worth it.”
Owner of Sparrow Springs
A variety of fine art without the commercial vibe
Mass-produced art is everywhere, and it can leave a room feeling stale. Yet, if you go to an independent artist, maybe they only deal in abstract. What if abstract isn’t your thing? Don’t even get me started on all the different marketplaces like Amazon, Etsy, Redbubble, and Society 6. You might find something you like, but how’s the customer service? Sparrow Springs is committed to providing upstanding customer service while sporting a variety of styles and mediums.
The many faces of Sparrow Springs
Sparrow Springs has undergone several changes over the years, from selling wooden buttons, driftwood sculptures, concrete decor, and original paintings at craft shows, to selling fine art prints online. However, it all comes back to the artist behind the company.
About the Artist
Sara Ferrari has been creating art since the age of 2 but has been selling her work since age 13. Mediums include drawing, painting, photography, woodworking, papier mache, fiber arts, glasswork, pottery, sewing, and more. Her passion lies in making people smile when they find the perfect piece. “When someone gets excited, and they can visualize exactly where they are going to put my artworks, that’s when I feel like the long hours are really worth it.”
Outside the Studio
Sara and her family love hanging out with their church family, where they get to practice the love of Jesus. Her favorite pastimes involve walks with her husband, writing stories with her best friend, snuggles with her son, and summer morning horseback rides.
The Origin Story
Sara had been selling her art for several years before Sparrow Springs came to life. Two years prior, someone came to Sara with a sparrow fallen from its nest. After rehabilitation, she became a part of the family. “Jackie Sparrow” often enjoyed stealing rings and perching on Sara’s wrist while she did the dishes. In 2015, Sara wanted to turn her art into a career but was unsure how to proceed. Then, she came across a verse from the book of Matthew. “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” This became the inspiration to how she wanted to live life, trusting God to take care of her and the gift He had given her.
