1.      When did you start Kiwi Avenue?

I have always been passionate about art- living, breathing and creating art during almost every moment of my day.  I received my first handful of beads as a birthday gift when I was 13, and never looked back.  By the age of 16, I started selling my creations to friends for Prom and Homecoming.

Time passed, and my freshman year of college lead me to a paramount exhibit- The National Art Education Association.  This event consisted of over 1,500 art teachers making me simultaneously quite nervous and anxious to hear their critiques.  To my surprise, the art educators loved my work and were very impressed with my design skills, branding, and sales abilities.  

After this wonderful boost of encouragement, I decided to double major in Small Business Entrepreneurship and Marketing at North Central College.  It was here that I learned not only the ins and outs of running a company, but how to promote and sell my art work effectively.  The next four years that followed, truly shaped Kiwi Avenue into what it is today.   My professors at NCC inspired me to continue with my passion and to continually challenge myself.  

Kiwi Avenue has been growing and developing into the story that it is today. Though far from finished, each new chapter has added sentiment to our brand. You’ll fall in love with our Floral Romance collection, catch a plane to Paris with our World Traveler line, celebrate victories with our School Spirit variety, make time stand still with Forever Yours Birthstones, or embrace your whimsical side with a piece from our Birds of a Feather collection.

2.      What is your favorite piece?
If I had to choose one piece… I would choose The Secret Key necklace from our Found Treasures Collection.  It’s a hand-poured pendant on a 16″ silver plated chain, with a subtle elegant combination of black and white newsprint and a tiny pewter key.  The short length allows me to effortlessly layer it with other necklaces.  A simple addition to complete any outfit, especially perfect for the holiday season.  Can’t wait to wear it with this kiwi green dress I bought recently!

3.      What is your MUST have Winter Fashion item?
My handmade winter bow headband is a definitely my go to winter fashion accessory.  They keep my ears nice and toasty, and every time I wear it I get numerous compliments!  Our Chicago weather is so unpredictable, so typically I keep an extra one in my car, just in case.  ; )

4.      With Christmas right around the corner, is there anything that is on your wish list?
I would LOVE a pair of Toms shoes!  I’ve never owned a pair before.  Flats, boots, and wedges…. oh my!  There are so many options to choose from!  I found this pair of their signature style with dictionary quotes, and have just been obsessed with them ever since!  An artistic spin to a traditional pattern.  It would be heartwarming to know that the gift I received actually would change the life of a child in need.
