Tamara Bowens, a style icon, avid art collector, community activist, and business executive has always had a passion for all things art and fashion. Equipped with a Harvard MBA, a BBA in marketing from the University of Texas- Austin and a 15 year marketing career, Tamara began searching for her next career transition.

After collaborating on an interior design project with Ray Bergeron, a 20 year custom furniture designer and millwork veteran, entrepreneur and University of Georgia graduate, the two begin collaborating to launch of a business that combined their skill sets. Given Ray’s extensive knowledge of woods and his reputation for creating some on the most beautiful and unique custom furniture, cabinetry, and home accessories, the two began experimenting with the idea of creating a wood-based products business.

What started out as jewelry quickly morphed to handbags due to the unique nature of the product. It was at that moment, Tamara and Ray embarked upon their journey to create BowensBergeron. Lead by their combined creative and design direction, BowensBergeron clearly is positioned to revolutionize the handbag industry. BowensBergeron is seamlessly positioned at the intersection of art, fashion, and design.
