Sara Miller – Owner and Creator
I have always had a love of art and design. I grew up convinced I would be an illustrator or and art teacher, and then found my way into design. I graduated from Mount Royal University with an Applied Interior Design Degree. While at Mount Royal I found that I truly enjoyed the drawing classes and presentation boards in design school rather than designing interiors themselves. My colour theory and rendering classes introduced me to the medium of markers and I quickly became adept at using them to create little notes and then cards for my friends and family. After years of encouragement from the recipients of those Birthday and Christmas cards, I was finally convinced to share them with everyone, and so Swoosh Creations was born! I am working mom and entrepreneur, and now am happily creating and producing cards and illustrations for the enjoyment of others.
As Sara’s studio is within a National park (Banff Alberta Canada), the environment is forefront in her mind. She has sourced environmentally friendly printing and paper companies, utilizes and reuses scrap and waste paper in her creative studio, and of course recycles whenever possible. She tries to do her part.
