MEET THE MAKER
A Creative Partnership: R. Riveter and Christy Tremblay 🎨
In a celebration of artistry and resilience, R. Riveter is thrilled to introduce Christy Tremblay as our featured maker for the Annual Makers Series. A self-taught artist with a military family background, Christy's work reflects her deep connection to nature, travel, and her ever-changing surroundings.
Christy's artistry is a testament to adaptability. Born in Tampa, Florida, and raised in Kirkland, Washington, she embarked on a journey marked by constant relocations. Her art became her anchor, echoing the colors and textures of her evolving world.
Her creative process is a captivating narrative, with each piece evolving through layers of media. It's a reflection of her ever-changing experiences and emotions. Through her art, she invites us to explore her world, offering a profound connection.
Christy's advice to aspiring artists is one of persistence and growth, drawing from her own journey of exploration and adaptation.

The Wilson Tote was inspired by Edith Wilson, the first woman who secretly served as acting President of the United States.
In the fall of 1919, when President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke, his wife Edith began to handle day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. She attended meetings and screened all matters of state, deciding which issues were important enough to bring to her bedridden husband. Edith continued this “stewardship” until the term ended in 1921, unofficially running the country months before women had the right to vote.
The Wilson Market Tote carries on the legacy of a strong, progressive woman whose dedication to her country and her family can inspire women everywhere.
Maintenance of R. Riveter Leather:
We love using real veg tanned leather in our handbags because they just better with age. If you happen to get scratches or water marks, you can usually get the bag looking new again with just a little maintenance.

Canvas Care Suggestions:
When spot cleaning the canvas, we suggest using a brush or sponge with water only to wipe it off soiled area. We do not recommend using anything other than water as it could discolor canvas material.
