Meredith Parker grew up in an artistic household where visual arts were always an important element in the family lifestyle. She received her BA in Arts & Humanities from Florida Atlantic University. She even failed her ceramics and sculpture course because her work was too avant garde... too simple, as she was told. But she forged on and began her artistic career in the design and production of hand crafted products in soft sculpture.
Meredith started off as a designer at an upscale hand- crafted doll company. Finding the corporate environment confining in terms of creativity and with two little boys at home, she decided to form her own design and production company.
Meredith applies her fun spirit to designing handcrafted home and pet goods. Her designs grew out of passion to apply whimsy and humor in developing new products. Simplicity, whimsy and humor are the trademarks of Meredith's work. Her fair-trade crafted products are made by skilled, well paid, artisans from all over the world. Meredith's passion for whimsical design, high quality materials and fair business practices sets her products apart from the ordinary.
Meredith's line of "handmade essentials" include holiday stockings, bottle cozies, seasonal home decor and knit dog sweaters. Her products are carried online, in stores and in catalogs throughout the United States. In addition, she works with retail clients to create one-of-a-kind designs.
