Kennett Square’s Suzanne Gaadt, an award-winning artist and graphic designer, has been recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as its first featured artist, writes Tara Smith for the Daily Local News.
Gaadt is the owner of the Give A Fig, a small business that she started seven years ago to celebrate nature and create art from her heart while giving back to the community. Her goal was to move away from doing everything on a computer and to start doing more things by hand.
The cards she creates, which are being featured at the National Wildlife Federation website this month, are beautiful and joyful to look at.
In addition to making the cards striking, Gaadt also makes sure they are as environmentally friendly as possible. All the products – including notebooks, tea towels, and pillows – are made in the U.S. using high-quality recycled paper and soy-based inks, along with 100-percent-cotton fabrics.
“It’s very important to me to stay true to my mission and continue to source really good quality materials that are also environmentally sustainable,” said Gaadt.
