Hi, y'all. I'm Andi Vargas Severin Goins.
(Yeah, it's a handful.)
Thanks for visiting my shop, Sevargo! For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for creating colorful & whimsical things. And while I probably would have been perfectly happy spending every single day with a large sketch book and the biggest box of colored pencils I could find, my parents insisted (unbelievable, isn’t it?) that I actually go to school. After 13 years of a great K-12 education in my beloved hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, I was off to Vanderbilt University where I received a B.A. in studio art and art history. Then, I topped it off with an M.A. from the University of Texas at Austin. With formal education behind me and my continued and ever-developing love of art and design, I was fortunate to spend the next five-plus years in an inspiring and enriching position at the Dallas Museum of Art. Finally in 2017, I knew it was time…to return to my huge box of colored pencils and Sevargo was born.
When I am not busy designing, you can find me hanging out with my hubby, kiddo and pup.
What does Sevargo even mean??
“Sevargo” (pronounced seh-VAR-goh) is a mash-up of all my last names:
- Severin - My original last name (aka my "maiden" name)
- Vargas - My middle name (and my mama’s maiden name, and now, it's also my son's middle name)
- Goins - My hubby and son's last name
And the font in the Sevargo logo is just a cleaned up version of the handwriting I use when signing my name.
