Rebecca Puig - Sugarboo and Co - Our Story

My name is Rebecca Puig and I am the artist behind Sugarboo Designs. Sugarboo is our family business that my husband, Rick, and I started in 2005. 

In case you were wondering, “Sugarboo” came from a couple of nicknames I have for my children, Jake and Sophie. They are the main inspiration for Sugarboo because I always want to create products that remind us of the ones we love. Ever since I was a little thing, I loved to paint and create things. I went to the University of Georgia and graduated with a Studio Art degree. 

My inspirations are my family, nature, animals, old things, children’s art and folk art. I also love juxtaposing old and new, light and dark, serious subject matter with fluff and anything with a message! I believe in putting good out into the world whenever possible. My hope is that each Sugarboo piece we send out into the world will add a little good!
