Hello, I'm Helen! I'm a maker, designer and marine scientist.
I started Left of Port in my home studio as a creative outlet while completing my PhD in marine science. I’m inspired by adventure, travel, and living a life less ordinary. I wanted to celebrate this type of lifestyle with others and so Left of Port was born.
Left of Port celebrates the pursuit of adventure — big or small, in everyday life.
Here in the shop I make accessories for modern day explorers and adventurers. My designs are influenced by the outdoors and travel, and I like to incorporate bold colors and vivid patterns from around the world into functional, everyday pieces.
All items are made by me at my home-studio in Santa Cruz, CA.
