I'm Lindsey, founder of FerrisBuilt. I live in Seattle, Washington with my identical twin daughters. I lost my company of 12 years due to Covid in the spring of 2020 (an event production company) and had to figure out a way to pivot and make a living when the industry that I've worked in my entire 25+ career - was shut down. As a single parent, this was a bit scary to say the least!
I decided to pursue my creative side in July of 2020 and see if I could make a go of my wood wall art and apparel designs that I've been doing as a "side hustle" for a few years - and figured "why not now?" My motivation was to still be a business owner as I enjoy that challenge and find a way to have a work schedule that I can prioritize my time around my children's schedule.
My apparel & goods are a way that I express things I feel strongly about with topics such as mental health, self-care and strong women. I still get into my woodshop which is what inspired the name "FerrisBuilt" but I no longer feature wood art in my shop.
My girls often get involved with ideas and we enjoy creating as a family. I'm always open to feedback or product suggestions!
