Biography

Donna Edmonds, aka Leafpeople, grew up with a mom who had studied to be a seamstress, and every day was an adventure in designing and creating.  Donna graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in Illustration, and has worked full-time as an Art Director in the corporate world for 30 years.

Getting back to her roots, Donna has combined her passion for making things with her love of dogs and all things vintage to create a series of one-of-a-kind DOG FRIENDS.  Inspired by her beloved Australian Shepherd, Annie, each dog is lovingly made using recycled vintage fabric, buttons, trim and jewelry.


DOG FRIENDS need friends, too, so CAT FRIENDS, BIRD FRIENDS, & FOREST FRIENDS are always popping up in her shop. You can see all of her current work in her etsy shop at www.Leafpeople.etsy.com or on flickr at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leafpeople/.

 

Several of Donna's dog friends enjoy a walk in the park in the Community background and one frolics on the Home Page..
