Who is Miss Marv Sweet?
Initially a name created for an art account, Marv Sweet was but a moniker for a gal who wanted to create but remain anonymous. However, as the state of the world declined Marv decided to get back in touch with her retro roots and once more (with feeling) re-embark on a not so anonymous pin up journey and in doing so, has had the opportunity to create and connect with the Vintage community on both Instagram and TikTok. Marv is also a HUGE nerd, preferably in the realms of Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel and DC. She has also entered the marvellous world of millinery, hot glue gun and pliers in hand.
