The Artisan Group is proud to announce this week's Artist Spotlight Feature is Fiona Rohde of Fiona Designs!
We caught up with Fiona and asked her a few questions about her designer stationery, and her experiences so far working with TAG. Here's what she said:
- Tell us a little bit about your shoppe. It all began with my desire to create greeting cards and has since expanded to include a wide array of stationery. Fiona Designs® now has a unique selection of greeting cards, note cards and personalized stationery sets. The stationery sets predominately feature original silhouettes illustrated and designed by me. These silhouettes range from various objects such as shoes, helicopters, musical instruments, watering cans and tricycles to animals, birds, bees, dogs and even dinosaurs! They have been very popular and I am constantly creating new designs, many are custom requests from clients.
- What is your favorite piece from your shoppe and why? I really love designing personalized stationery for clients and I am constantly inspired to try new ideas. It's really hard to choose a favorite. If I had to pick one set of stationery it would be the black lab note set. I designed it shortly after adopting our two labs and was the starting point for my ever expanding stationery collection.
- When you're not designing cool paper goods, what are your hobbies? I really have fun taking photographs and dabbling with acrylics. Spending time with my family is precious to me and I adore being a new mom!
- What do you like best about The Artisan Group? In short The Artisan Group rocks! It is an amazing experience being a part of The Artisan Group. I am truly inspired everyday by the fantastic and talented group of fellow members. The creativity and camaraderie is outstanding and it has opened up a whole new world of opportunities to help grow my business that I never would have had access to on my own. Valerie is a dedicated leader who strives for excellence and stops at nothing to find amazing opportunities to participate in. Being able to design and gift stationery to celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Ginnifer Goodwin and Jenny McCarthy among others is phenomenal.
The Artisan Group is an elite collective of artists who gift their handcrafted products to celebrities at Hollywood's top gift lounges.
