A native Hell's Kitchen, New Yorker, Jewrican and Sagittarius, Terri Frohman Founded Handmade in Brooklyn Collective Inc. in 2015. Currently living and working in Park Slope, Brooklyn, she serves as a full-time Mixed Media Artist, Founder, Speaker, Teacher and Mentor. 

SUNY New Paltz Alum & NYU Graduate,Terri was a well achieved Art Educator for over a decade serving in many leadership capacities. She represented the city and state board for the Arts Education Association, taught grades K-12, led educational workshops and initiated a variety mentor programming that supported teachers navigating the life and profession of an educator. 

In 2015, she began a new professional chapter as a full-time mixed media artist, leather accessories maker and screen printer and started out not only as the founder of Handmade in Brooklyn, but the sole member as well. She participated in markets, popups and any other opportunity that would help her develop her sense of self as an artist, maker and business woman. This new world was challenging and I had little to no guidance on how to BE an artist in business...I networked, made friends and eventually invited a group of artists and makers over to my studio, which eventually led to the collective. 

HMB is the sisterhood I've always wanted and needed in order to survive being a freelancer, artist and new business owner.


I do it all...just like you. 

I will continue to build strong community ethics among women in business, lead by example when it comes to building authentic relationships and provide resources to help others make their passions a profession.

That's what she said...

Kira Klein, Film Maker

I'm working on an upcoming event I'm hosting for my film release. She helped me find and curate a space to throw the event in, counseled me about how to handle future interactions (she basically put me onto MAJOR game) of this kind, and she helped me organize the technicalities of the event. Basically, she was MOM; she listened to and interpreted my vision perfectly, and was extremely professional throughout. I definitely plan to work with Terri in the future, and can't wait to join the physical manifestation of her vision "The Creative Haus."

Natalie Drake-Maurer,

HMB Artist in Resident

I joined HMB as a photo intern a year ago and in that time I have come to look at the collective as a sort of home away from home. There is far more that is shared during the monthly meetups than just arts and business- we support each other through our struggles as humans in this world and also celebrate the triumphs. Terri allows for all our voices to be heard and has pushed me to grow in ways I did not even know I wanted. 

Robin Erfe, Jeweler

When I met Terri, I knew she was genuine and cared deeply about helping women find success. As soon as we started working together through career counseling, I felt like she understood me. She pin pointed the areas where I needed help and customized our career sessions to me. My biggest fear around career stems from how overwhelming it all can be. Terri saw that and devised a plan to help me breakdown and organize my goals in actionable and attainable ways.
