About

I have been creating things for as long as i can remember, whether it be food gardens, homecooked meals, driftwood weaves, hip hop rhymes, dill pickles, collages, acoustic songs or up-cycled fashions. I presently live on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada in a small home I call the trailer palace. I despise the bulk of the fashion industry with their sweatshop practices and tend to create the bulk of the new additions to my wardrobe.

Within the experiences of these shows and bringing some of my stuff on tour, it was recommended to me to get my clothing more out there, and the ophishal idea of an 'officially unofficial' etsy site was sparked. Much of the inspiration of the items I make come from the wide variety of music I listen to, from ol' school soul, to hip hop and rock, from jazz to bluegrass, funk and reggae and everything in between.
Music and art go hand in hand.


I am extremely honoured anytime anyone expresses interest in something i have spent time on, and can think of nothing cooler than randomly running into someone wearing something i made.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check it out :) HOPE YOu EnJOY MySelF!!!!!!!!^%**@!!!:)
