Birmingham, Ala. (May 19, 2016) – Roger Sparks, one of the CMH family, is both an artist and an architect. He and his wife, Rosie, who is a full-time artist, have started a side family business, Sparks Design. Through their work they try to share their delight in the natural & imagined elements of the visual world. Rosie creates original mixed media jewelry from a variety of materials, including opaque and frosted shrink plastics, assorted beads and crystals, and silver-plated findings and chains. Roger illustrates a vast array of scenes, creatures, and objects using tiny dots of various sizes and colors, a style of painting otherwise known as pointillism. Rosie turns these images into night-lights, Christmas ornaments, prints, greeting cards and mobiles using shrink plastic & paper. Roger has won several design competitions including an Architectural study grant that allowed him to travel in Europe, Asia & Africa. He has received purchase prizes for his art work, and also had it exhibited in several art museums.
