1. Tell us about your work
I want my work to be elegant, yet fun. I love simple, classic designs. Most of my projects are printed. I love paper. I love being able to cut, score, and hold my work in my hands. More recently I have been working on some digital designs like phone wallpapers. It is just as fun to see them light up on your phone.
2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer?
I majored in Graphic Design at RISD. After I graduated I started off just designing small projects for family and friends. Eventually the word spread and now there isn't a week that goes by that someone doesn't ask me to work on something for them.
3. Where do you draw your inspiration?
My greeting card designs are inspired by things that I find in nature, design blogs, magazines and on Pinterest. I like…

1. Tell us about your work.
I up cycle, recycle, repurpose and design using fabric, wood, metal, glass and anything I get my hands on. Usually I can see something when I look at stuff and then have an impulse to make it into something useful. I never use a pattern, and the mediums I use don't have instructions so I spend a lot of time fabricating.
2. Is there a story behind the name of your business?
It’s in honor of my late husband who died at the age of 37. He was a master carpenter. He built the home I live in. Hi name is Anthony David Spaziano.
