damn hippie was created from my love of ceramics, fiber arts + crafting.
I'm a California native making hand-made artisan crafts + wellness goods. I studied art at UCBerkeley + fell into advertising as a way to earn a living in the creative field. For 25 years, fine art took a back seat while I worked coast-to-coast from San Francisco to New York City to Los Angeles.
Now, living on the coast in LA surrounded by nature, I have been inspired to strip away the excess - distilling daily life + possessions down to simple pieces that are made with thought, artistry + love. I sound like a damn hippie, and thus - the business name was born!
