Luz Maria Clayton reached out to the International Rescue Committee Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for guidance and technical assistance to develop her business. Together, with the SBDC’s expertise and Luz’s drive to build this business from the ground up, she now has a thriving shop and is available for commissioned artwork.

“Without the SBDC, we would not be open today,” said Luz.

Luz evolved from a self-taught artist and stay-at-home mom to a successful owner of a digital art and mixed media business that sells to the public and creates designs for other small business owners for their shops, including t-shirts and other gift ideas.

Luz’s mom, Linda, can often be seen in the shop and does crochet work. There might even be a live crochet lesson, depending on the day.
