About Us

Our Story…

The Professional Bohemians began as a collaboration between myself and my (also artist) sister in law, Julie Barrett Cataldo. We began by creating and designing art work, offering workshops and lessons, and facilitating community art pieces.

In 2012 I moved to Nashville to learn to focus and market our business. Together Julie and I learned the basics and thought that offering a consistent product to market would be the best approach. Jump ahead five years and we now have multiple product lines of beautifully crafted and durable soft toys, designed for creative play, film, photography, therapy or collection.

Julie has moved on to explore other avenues but, as the oldest of 13 children, I have always enjoyed using my creativity to give in this way. I am joined now by my husband and children, as well as other professional bohemians, in hopes of developing this tiny little world of imagination that Julie and I have started into something bigger.

I LOVE this job and this business and I am grateful to everybody that has supported us!!! I hope you enjoy stepping into my world!

Shop members

  • Eppie Cataldo Bailey The Professional Bohemians

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    Artist, singer-songwriter, designer, writer, mother, wife, entrepreneur, and all around good guy. I am the oldest of 13 children and began conjuring toys out of thin air (for my siblings) when I was but a wee soul... just carrying on the gift. :)

  • Tonna Barrie of Daisydogknits

    Creator, Designer

    Tonna Barrie, of Daisydogknits, designs and knits the most wondrous treats for the RagdOlly people and their friends. A Professional Bohemian in her own right, her sense of color and beauty are a perfect fit!

  • Janet Cataldo

    Designer, Maker

    My mother made my very first handmade doll, one of my all time favorite Christmas presents! She's made millions of beautiful things (including my 12 siblings and myself) and said, if I didn't gush about her, she would make things for you too! :)

Production partners

  • Fine Linen & Scarlett, Seamstress, craftsman, artisan, artist

    Murfreesboro, TN

    Nancy comes from a family of seamstresses and the ease with which she works fabric makes that obvious. She helps with the preliminary sewing needed on my lines, providing me with flat blanks, which I can then sculpt into life and make 'real'!
