Sweet started painting when she was 10, and later attended Rhode Island School of Design, where she earned her degree in painting. She says that after she graduated, she almost gave up because the reality of living as an artist hit her so hard. She considers herself very lucky to have continued working and made it this far.
What's your earliest memory of Phoenix? The subtleness of desert color. It requires you to look to see its range. And the heat....my husband and I came out for a visit in June and went hiking at 11:00 with one bottle of water. Tourists!!
