It's time to introduce you to two more great vendors that will be at our holiday event! From left to right:
Vincent Desjardins: Vincent Desjardins is a freelance illustrator who has recently taken his illustration skills in a new direction. Over the past year he has taken his love for vintage style illustration and combined it with his love for textile design to create repeating patterns which he has had printed on to 100% cotton fabric. As part of this new enterprise, he has taken to his sewing machine to create a line of sewn items like pillow covers, zippered coin purses and pencil and cosmetics bags, all of them featuring his own unique, retro style illustrations.
Siosi Design + Build: Siosi Design + Build employs the tag-team pairing of local artists, Audim Q. Culver and Ivy Siosi. Collaborators in life and love, Siosi notches out innovative forms of solid, sustainable, conscious construction. Each creation is as much a standalone art object as it is a functional testament to woodworking refined.
