Sundae Sparkles was born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon. She describes always being interested in dance, art, and theater all through school. In high school, she discovered the world of horses and dressage. She grew up in an artistic family, married an artist, and has a son.
Sundae began belly-dancing in 2003 as a form of self-expression, but soon became immersed in owning and operating a comic book store, and home-schooling her son. In 2008, she saw the traveling Burlesque show, Tease-O-Rama, in Ashland, an experience that she found compelling and fascinating. In 2014, she threw a birthday bash that incorporated Burlesque as part of the entertainment. That same year she attended the Burlesque educational conference in Seattle, BurlyCon. Within a year, Sundae was performing Burlesque in the Rogue Valley with fellow Burlesque performer, Miss Darby Doll.
Sundae works full-time in the world of art. Her husband is also an artist, and together they make products and they travel extensively to vend at large convention across the United States.
