Hello there! I'm Evelyn, the solopreneur who followed her heart & vision into the world of entrepreneurship.
Sometimes I think my past life was in the Industrial Age because I’ve always had a desired to “build something.” Nothing gets me more excited that a blank canvas on which to draw out my dreams & vision. That might be what drew me to start my business education earning a minor in Entrepreneurship from the University of Florida. I had all these dreams but instead of following them, I entered corporate America. I would have a long sales career in technology and luxury jewelry although my passion was paper, stationery & owning a business. Finally, in 2019 I decided it was time after a decade of dreaming. I played with paper, color, graphic design, envelopes, paper swatches, printers and foil machines like a mad scientist. I wanted a look that was unique so I drew, did yoga and played with designs until I knew what vibe I wanted Gilesi to have. Thank you for visiting this section!
