Meet the Artist:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Hello, I am Sarah from North Augusta. During the day I am a project manager for a real estate company and at night I enjoy creating new recipes for frozen treats. I grew up in Ohio and settled here after serving in the United States Air Force
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I search for the best and freshest ingredients from local sources to create a frozen version of
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I named Lefty’s Chill Pops after my grandfather, Leo. His nickname was Lefty and was lovingly called that by all friends and family. He loved desserts and spending time with (spoiling) his grandchildren. He always had some kind of frozen treat ready for us when we visited. I want to carry on that tradition and offer tasty, wholesome (for the most part, it’s okay to treat ourselves), frozen treats that can be enjoyed all year round.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I love to create new frozen treat recipes that my family enjoys and that remind me of the fun times of my childhood. It is a great feeling when someone first tastes a Chill Pop and says “Yummmmm!”, then I know I have done something right.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS +
One piece of advice I would share is to keep trying and experimenting. It can take time to find the right process, material, or ingredient. If you have a passion for something, keep trying until you find your groove.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I have two rescue dogs, one is 130 pounds and the other is only 20 pounds, and two rescue cats. They are banned from the kitchen when I am making Chill Pops, so to make up for that I have created a pet friendly version called “Pup Pops” (cats like them too) that they get to have later.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I did not grow up in this area, but have grown to love Augusta over the past few years. Downtown Augusta has a lot of history, I learned a lot during the canal tour by the discovery center, many different festivals, great restaurants, and awesome people!
