My mission is to transform waste into functional and fun beauty. By revaluing trash, standing up for the health of the Oceans and following my passions, I hope to inspire people to live their dreams and actively protect our shared resource and right for clean water.
The positive energy of the Ocean fuels my passion for transforming harmful waste into beauty. My intention is to create one-of-a-kind pieces crocheted out of up-cycled materials intercepted from our waste stream.
Through encouraging activism, reducing consumerism and promoting conservation and love; I am spreading the message “it’s good luck to pick up trash” and “it’s sexy to consume less” (especially single use items).
I hope people who see my work are inspired to start using reusable products and take an active role in protecting our shared and limited resource, WATER.
All the beachwear is handmade on the central coast of California.
Currently I am the Rise Above Plastics lead for my local Surfrider Chapter working with passionate people who are actively protecting and enjoying our ocean, waves and beaches. I am also part of Project Vortex, an international collective of artists working with plastic debris.
Rooted in Health and Freedom I embrace that we are all in this together. Working together towards a loving and light future full of beauty and FUN.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up…. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” ~ John Lennon
