1. Tell us about your work: 
About 5 years ago I decided to make a life a changing decision. I decided to take on a vegan lifestyle. It had been the best thing I have ever done. It didn't take long for me to realize how much I missed eating desserts. I baked my first vegan cupcake, and it was instant love. I put passion into every treat I create. One would never know my tasty treats are dairy, egg, honey, and animal product free. Nothing is more satisfying then seeing the pure indulgence and happiness my treats put on ones face.

2. How did you come to be open an etsy bakery?
I started off on a very small scale selling vegan baked goods at the Scituate farmers market in 2008. Seeing as though that only ran for the summer season, I needed other ways to fulfill my baking addiction. I had heard about etsy through a friend and checked out the website. The rest is history.

3. Where do you draw your inspiration?
I get lots of my inspiration from my taste buds. I know what I like to eat and the flavor combinations I crave. I have a huge sweet tooth. I find inspiration in non-vegan desserts. It's a thrill when you can replicate common food desserts and make them cruelty free.



4. What’s your favorite item to make?
My favorite thing to bake would probably be "cheesecake". I only say thins because it is my favorite thing to consume. I am addicted.



5. What’s your best seller? 
My best holiday seller would have to be my Valentine chocolate boxes. They're awesome! There are an array mouth watering flavors. They are also less common to find in the vegan world. I also have them at a pretty nice price point. During non holidays my biggest seller are my S'mores bars. Who doesn't love the combination of marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate? Yum!



6. How long have you been in Rhode Island?
I was born and raised in this cozy state.

7. What do you {heart} about Rhode Island?
I love RI for its four seasons, its size, its expanding vegan food scene, and its memories.
