About the speaker
Angi grew up on John’s Creek in Cullowhee, NC with the Nantahala National Forest as her backyard. She is a trained musician and songwriter and currently only listens to Bach - Goldberg Variations or Beyoncé. She decided to go to business school and become a CPA/ tax accountant in 2008 because she was tired of not understanding how all that economic stuff worked. Angi lives in West Asheville with her husband Matt Drury, their two geckos and three rats in a house that her dad, uncle and cousin built for them. She lives to learn and serve.

We design all of our products together and screen print everything in house. We spent 2015 and 2016 taking our 1987 turquoise renovated short bus to outdoor craft shows and sharing our products with people from all over the globe. In 2017 we opened up a brick and mortar store in a gorgeous old photography studio in downtown Asheville, NC and hired a team! So happy to have moved the screen printing set up out of our kitchens we are now looking forward and we are so excited to expand the company, keep creating and making great quality products that bring smiles to people far and wide…
