1. Tell us about your work
I have a line of bridal purses that are all designed and handmade here in Rhode Island. Each piece is handmade to order which allows me to customize with a personalized embroidery message.

2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer?
I would have to say that I fell into the profession. It was a very organic process and still is to this day.

3. Where do you draw your inspiration? 
I love old hollywood glamour so I think that my work has a bit of a vintage flair. I also draw my inspiration from the current bridal fashions and trends.

4. What’s your favorite item to create? 
I love creating a new design… although the process can be tedious and frustrating, when the end result produces a product that I am proud of there is no better feeling!

5. What’s your best seller? 
My Ostrich Feather purses are my best sellers year after year. My Ostrich Feather Purse in dove grey has been seen on the red carpet in hollywood and in many different publications throughout the years.

6. How long have you been in Rhode Island? 
I grew up in RI but spent 8 years living in Southern California. I recently relocated back to RI to be closer to family.

7. What do you {heart} about Rhode Island? 
Since I've lived out of state for so long now coming back I have a whole new appreciation of lil Rhody. I love the small town feel that the entire state has, I love the beaches, I love the changing seasons (something southern california lacks!), I love exploring the different many different areas of RI.. there is so much beauty in this state!
