Who We Are

Lesli-Ann Powell, Owner/Creative Director

Lesli-Ann Powell, Owner/Creative Director

From the moment she cut out a multidimensional toucan - freehand, using only safety scissors - everyone knew Lesli-Ann was destined for artistic greatness!   Beginning with that first construction paper menagerie, Lesli-Ann pursued her love of art and design throughout the years both through a course of study in studio art at American University as well as through exploration in photography, crafting, knitting, architecture, and interior design before finally alighting on her true passion - designing personalized pieces of art for others to share with the world!  What began as a few rubber stamps and some embossing ink in a shoebox is now a full service design studio, where Lesli-Ann's love of art and passion for design are fully realized and put to work making your event as unique and special as you!

Little Birdie (as Lesli-Ann is known to chirp chirp chirp to her little heart's content...) has been creating unique and handcrafted cards, invitations, and announcements for more than 10 years.  She holds a bachelors degree in Business Administration and Studio Art from American University in Washington, DC and a Masters in Business Administration from Bryant University in Smithfield, RI.

Why We're the Best

Little Birdie was created to bring back a touch of the personal in this age of mass production and electronic media -- the essence of YOU.   We create the things you won't find browsing through giant books at a printer, and we give you the chance to experiment and collaborate - something you rarely find online.

Modern or traditional, chic or rustic, playful or professional, Little Birdie works with you to make your stationery UNIQUELY YOURS.  We have a little something for everyone and every budget….and if we don’t….we find a way to make it happen. And that’s a good reason to choose us.

"Lesli-Ann is the picture of professionalism-knowledgeable, responsive and reasonable. Combine those attributes with her creativity and lovely personality, and in me, Little Birdie has found a customer for life."    - Dori
