Growing up, my family was very big on nicknames. My birth name is Eve, and although it's quite short I have at least five nicknames. The one that I like best, and that has stuck even until now is Evie Peeve. I was definitely what you would call a creative, expressive, and carefree kid.
I've always loved design and fashion, and with growing up in Detroit, I was blessed to be in the midst of a city that was brimming with art in all forms. Street art, fine art, sculptures, museums galore, and really just any art-form that you could imagine! If you ever visit, I highly recommend checking out the Detroit Main Library
, The DIA
(Detroit Institute of Art), and the Heidelberg Project
It wasn't until I reached high school, that I began to slowly hide and suffocate my sense of self and self expression. Creativity and uniqueness weren't qualities that were celebrated among my peers, so I became a wallflower. Although I am far from being a wallflower now that I am in my 30s, I still long to reconnect with the carefree and creative person that I use to be, and began this passion project/small business to provide an outlet for all of my creative energy.
Being able to create and curate accessories has been incredibly freeing and calming for me. It has allowed for me to be that fun-loving kid again while bringing back the passion and excitement of self expression through creativity.
My hope is that Evie Peeve will inspire and uplift you, while encouraging you to share your creativity through authentic self expression.
Love always in all ways,
