My name is Sloane Solanto and I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my husband, Chris, and our three dogs, Al, Sadie and Frank. I worked for my dad’s business from 1999-2012 and am now self employed.  In the past I have had a brief stint driving an 18 wheeler cross country, and was a baker at a health food café for many years. Now I own  The Creative Wedge: An Artisan Market with my friend Barbara Densley.

My passion is making art and crafts. When I am working with beautiful bright colors my soul sings! I like to paint on tissue paper, cut it up, and use it as my collage medium. Sometimes I work on canvas and other times I decoupage it over whimsical critters that I make out of gourds.

Another one of my favorite past times is knitting. I enjoy creating patterns for crazy stuffed critters and knitting them with colorful novelty yarns.

On top of the day job, art and crafts I also enjoy reading, and constantly challenging myself…like starting this business!!
