"[Studio Bowerbird] is kitchen design and architectural design. I have a bachelor of fine arts in interior design, but I specialized in the kitchen, millwork, architectural type design very early in my career.
I worked for several different showrooms and I was commuting from Boston into Wellesley when I was pregnant with my second child. When I came off of maternity leave I had moved to the Metrowest area in Natick and the company I was working for wanted me to commute to Boston. After that I saw the writing on the wall and began to start my own business.

My mom had always told me "if you love it you'll be successful at it" and for a lot of years I didn't believe that.

Fortunately I had a bought a big antique house in the center of Natick so I had the space to carve out a studio. I took online orders, used my computer, called on my past resources, and built a business. This July it will be five years.

I've always said entrepreneurialism is an affliction, not a choice.

I think that as you grow as a designer, you grow in style as well and you play around with different things until you find something that feels natural. When I'm working that's the way it feels. Sometimes I think I don't push it enough because it feels so effortless to me, but it feel so new and exciting to my clients. I feel like I'm getting to that place in my own fashion choices as well."
