Hi, I am Bri Davey! I am a maker: an artist, letterpress printer, sewer, knitter, calligrapher, and a hopeful children’s book illustrator. I love to create, to make, and to work with my hands and do so pretty much every day. I have a sincere love for the handmade and you can easily win me over with chocolate...any kind. I've been creating since I was just a little one, making toilet paper roll Santa ornaments and Skippy peanut butter lid diorama's. However, this year I discovered something. Creating (get ready)...is my life's purpose. Regardless of the medium (I once knit a rainbow patterned hippo and I count that), with everything that I aspire to, creativity helps get me there. For example, I wouldn't be a good friend or loving wife or caring daughter without creativity. It's through creativity that these relationships are full of heart and soul...like when I sketched funny googly-eyed cartoon characters for my husband on his birthday or when I painted a piece of wall art for a friend's new baby. With that, I recently launched a new handmade creative business, Davey Handmade (www.daveyhandmade.com) featuring handmade bags, knit hats and letterpress stationery from my first business, Creative Lab Press (www.creativelabpress.com). All while preparing for my own little one, due in March! Half of the time I have a table full of sewing and knitting supplies, and the other half that table is full of paint, ink, brushes, and pencil shavings. When not creating the above, I spend my time cooking, hiking, skiing, practicing some four or so songs on the ukulele and hanging out with my furry friend and my loving husband on the West Coast.
