Art Bio

 Alicia has had an interest in the arts since her childhood, in the ‘Trash Room’ at the Chicago Children’s Museum is one of the earliest places Alicia was initiated into the practice of art making. Much of the diversity in Alicia’s present artwork is from influences as a child. Born to one African American, and one Jewish parent – exposure to the world, her themes of nature and the cosmos, and other influences can be traced directly back to a wealth of childhood experiences. By 17, she was already in tune with her creative intuition, erecting a magnitude of work stretching beyond kid-friendly debris of the Children’s Museum. She was a participant in Gallery 37 a Youth Arts program for over five years, and was involved in a number of arts and science programs for gifted students.  Alicia received her B.A. from Rutgers University for studies in both Anthropology and Fine Arts with a focus on painting. After graduating Alicia relocated to New York City to pursue a career as a professional artist. In her first year out of college Alicia started the business Designs by Alicia P which began with selling her own: hand-painted clothing & paintings but eventually grew to be an entire line of Jewelry designs each one hand made and based on her interests in anthropology, and with a roots in sculptural work.

Over the ten years that Alicia has run her own business, she has honed and perfected her unique style of art using suede leather, found objects, and other mixed media to create jewelry, wall hangings and now large format sculptures. Alicia has participated in a countless number of exhibitions including juried shows in New York and Chicago, as well as an invitational exhibition in London. In 2013 she was recognized by several arts funding organizations, and her work has been featured in major studio films, television programs, print, & digital media outlets.

Currently, Alicia is expanding her signature aesthetic now focusing on combining her creative modalities into one multi-sensory experience in the form of sculpture and installation work. In 2015, Alicia is excited to have been invited to travel to India to participate in the Art Castle International Art Residency. Alicia continues to exhibit her work regularly as well as designing custom work for private clients.

FashionistaTea Organic Orange Chamomile Blend

“The FashionistaTea Collection is sourced from small tea growers from around the world to assure the freshest and best possible ingredients. The line consists of all organic teas and botanicals and Fair Trade Tea wherever possible, which promotes fair wages for workers, helps to protect against land loss and promotes environmentally friendly processes for producers and their families. We love the idea of helping farmers in a small way in other parts of the world. For more information please visit www.fairtradecertified.org.

The unique feature of the collection is the custom crafted biodegradable silk pyramid sachets with a tea tag of a leopard print stiletto heel making its debut. More stylish tags will follow similar to fashion collections keeping the line fresh, collectible, current and ever-changing. This couture-inspired tag displayed over a tea cup not only allows for a visual experience but automatically becomes a conversation piece.

About the Owner

FashionistaTea was founded by Brenda Dillon Cavette. For as long as she can remember, she has loved tea, beginning with fond memories at the kitchen table drinking tea with her mom. Tea has signified many things, from sitting in quiet reflection taking a moment from a busy day, to gathering with friends and family celebrating special occasions. Travel opened a new world of tea for Brenda, revealing its history, wonderful flavors and sensibilities. The thirst to know more about this lovely, complex beverage led Brenda to study tea more intently and become a member of The Specialty Tea Institute, a division of The Tea Association of the USA.

A former television producer and Emmy Award nominee, Brenda produced numerous fashion and design segments. A love of all things stylish, from studying fashion design and merchandising in college, further inspired the connection of tea and fashion. These two worlds now meet in a collection of gourmet teas crafted to impart a unique taste and an aura of sophistication. The line was designed using Organic and Fair Trade teas packaged in beautiful, elegant tins. Tea is a healthy beverage and now FashionistaTea can turn any cup of tea into “Tea with Style.” ™”                                                       –FashionistaTea
