About the Artist
In 1983, Pam graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with degrees in Fashion Merchandising and Resource Business Management. For her final project, she designed and made a small handbag, bringing it from production to retail with all the steps in between. Pam’s love for handbags began here, and she has been designing and making them ever since. For 11 years Pam designed and made a line of children’s clothing called RizzoWear, and eventually returned to her first love of designing and making bags for a living. Pam now creates her signature line of bags from her Kennebunkport, Maine home using vintage, new and repurposed fabrics and notions.
