Christy Ferrigno, Sparta Member Since August 2011 Artist Statement My Little One is a company that specializes in magnificent, hand painted murals and faux finishes for your "your little one", your home or business!
Christy Ferrigno has spent years making extra money using her creative talent. During high school and college, Christy worked at a local store in her hometown, Livingston, NJ as an artist creating stunning, hand painted children's furniture and gift items. While working there, customers would express interest in having Christy create murals in their homes and from that, word spread and soon she was creating murals in businesses as well. Christy's love for art continued, and while obtaining her bachelor’s degree from Seton Hall University, she majored in Fine Art and Elementary Education. Later on, she went back to school for Graphic Design.
After teaching Art, Pre-K and Kindergarten for 8 years, and being a Graphic Designer for two years, Christy began her most important career as a Mom of two beautiful children. She and her wonderful, supportive husband currently reside in Sparta NJ, and couldn't feel more blessed to have their wonderful family and try to enjoy each day to the fullest! Christy’s need for a creative outlet continued and manifested itself in elaborate themed birthday parties for her children from one of a kind invitations to unique party favors. She also continued to do murals for friends and clients as well as using her own home as a blank canvas on which to create. Christy began experiencing the desire to turn her passion into profit and is now painting murals full time!
