THE BIG SHOTS

Meet the big shots that planted the seed that became EandI Design.

Erin

Our founder, Erin Sarpa, made her first fortune as a country-western singer with number one hits like
“When A Man Says Something and There’s No Woman Around, Is He Still Wrong?” and
“If Only I Could Marry My Pick-up.” The fast pace, glamour and stalkers eventually drove her out
of the music business. She found a new creative outlet in design. After receiving a TV Guide Drawing
and Design diploma in 1990, Erin opened the doors of EandI Design.
