How one muralist is uniting Lansing with one brushstroke
Strange Matter Coffee. Bangos. Lansing Shuffle. Social Sloth Cafe. Sprinkled throughout Lansing, these small businesses have something in common – the walls all have traces of artist Sara Pulver’s work.
A Laingsburg-native, Pulver founded her own small business in 2014. The stationary and print shop, Dear Ollie, is located in the back of Lansing bookstore, A Novel Concept. Pulver said the shop’s namesake is her dog, Oliver.
“He is a consistent troublemaker, but he’s also the biggest cuddle bug you’ll ever meet,” Pulver said. “His personality felt like the sentiment behind a lot of my cards and illustrations: snarky but sweet, kindness with a little bit of an edge.”
