Success Story: Art de Luz
Small Business Featured: Art de Luz
Assistance Received: Training
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 is available to create designs for other small business owners for their shops, including t-shirts and other gift ideas.
