Lealand Eve Boutique

Lealand Eve is an artist & illustrator who opened a shop in Sayville, NY, with her partner Nathan King called Lealand Eve Boutique (52 South Main Street). After graduating in 2002 from Pratt (Brooklyn) with a BFA in fashion, Leland took a liking to illustration and began a freelance illustration career. She has worked on several children's books, magazine illustration and a game for Wizards of the Coast. Lealand became more interested in her personal works and wanted to cut the illustration out, but was unsure how she could make a living as an artist and get her work in front of people. In the spring of 2008, the retail shop was opened & began selling home d├Ęcor, personal accessories and jewelry. The wall space is utilized as gallery space to show off both Lealand's artwork and the work of other emerging artists on Long Island. If you're unable to visit the shop in person, you can do some shopping online. I love all the unique dinnerware, especially the Sapling silverware set. There is also a nice selection of items for men.
