Meet the designer of La Bella Rue™
It started back when I was a 4-year-old creating handmade cards for my mom and dad. I had a love for art at a young age, whether it was making my own paper dolls or the elementary school drawings I entered in the Annual Art Fair. Not surprisingly, I attended the Massachusetts College of Art to study Design and Illustration and pursue the artist within me. In 1997, I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and worked in various positions in the graphic design field.
I did miss the fine arts side of the business and decided to launch La Bella Rue™ in 2006. A wedding planner brought to my attention Zazzle, a print on demand company, thinking they would be a great fit for me. I opened my online shop within Zazzle February of 2010! My new additional venture started in early 2016 with Creative Market where I sell do-it-yourself products you can download instantly. The Fall of 2016 I joined in design competitions with Minted. This was a challenge since the only designs sold on Minted are from winning a design challenge. The Minted design community is amazing and I was felt very humble when I received my first win in the Baby Shower Challenge (see it here!).
La Bella Rue™ is so special to me as it celebrates my appreciation for great art, my love for typography, paper & color and my passion to create every day. I'm truly blessed to be able to do what I love.
Location: the South Shore of Massachusetts just 12 miles South of Boston in Braintree.
