When Dionna Collins founded her business ComfiArt in 2016, it was a departure for her. After realizing she was burnt out from freelance digital design work and her fulltime job, Collins wanted a new artistic platform of her own. In an interview with VA Mag, Collins spoke on the beginnings of her business. “ComfiArt started as a pillow company. I created pillows and blankets, a lot of stuff that’s comfy.”
