I’m Brí, founder, maker, greeting card lover.
I’ve always been into arts and crafts. When I was a kid I had basement full of polymer clay creatures; as a theatre student I loved making 1/2” scale scenic models; and for years I have sent handmade holiday cards to my loved ones. I’ve always enjoyed sending mail — as my pen pals know, while I’m not prompt about writing back, I love sending or receiving a good letter, card, or care package.
In 2018, these passions came together when I launched in great haste and started selling my handmade cards on @etsy then at the @grandbazaarnyc and @harlemmakerscollective — and it’s been exciting to see it grow over the last three years!
I am based in Harlem where my fiancé has helped create a fabulous craft studio in our apartment. I work full-time as an arts administrator at @nyuniversity @nyutisch, spend my weekends as a day-of coordinator for weddings, and am pursuing an MPA at @nyuwagner — and I make greeting cards!
