Hello there!



Hi there! I’m Laine and I’m the designer behind Laine Sutherland Designs, formally A Little Peace of Africa.

I was a middle school teacher for 6 years, from 2009 to 2015. I have always had a passion for design and, as a teacher, I loved decorating my classroom with my own, hand made posters and adorning my worksheets with my own images. I started turning my doodles into clip art and so A Little Peace of Africa was born. In 2013 I posted my first clip art product in my TpT store.

My passion grew and after attending the TpT conference in Vegas in 2016, I decided to turn my passion for design into my full time trade. 

A Little Peace of Africa has grown over the years and this year, in 2018, I decided to rebrand as  Laine Sutherland Designs so that I could forge a deeper connection with my clients!
