While I was pregnant with my second baby, learning the shocking statistics about malaria made me feel like my heart would break. This galvanized my will to create Heart On My Sleeve and raise funds to protect little (and big) people.

As a parent, I often feel I must have an iron heart; at times strict, but always strong in my intention to do the best I can by my children.
This design pairs botanical motifs with rugged texture for a beautiful sweater with feminine strength and character.
