$1 from each purchase goes towards Trees That Count, helping plant native Aotearoa trees. They are a conservation charity with the vision of helping to plant 200 million native trees across the country. Planting native trees is one of the most powerful actions we can take to combat climate change, protect our beautiful landscapes, waterways and forests for future generations.
More native trees in the ground means more homes for our native birds, spaces for our kids to play and a more beautiful New Zealand. Every tree counts, so whether you fund 1 tree or 100 trees it all makes a difference.

She has always had a passion for creative Makeup Artistry. In 2012 she studied to become a professional makeup artist in Christchurch, where her freelancing career kicked off, she's worked on many creative projects. In 2016 she moved back to Helsinki to refine and up skill at Makeup Forever Academy, taking out the best scores in her class. After that she landed an opportunity working on the most viewed Live TV Show in Finland, "MTV Tähdet, Tähdet",which she was a part of for 2 seasons.
Whilst in Finland, her other artistic vessels got reignited. After the passing of her abuelo ( father's father ) in 2018, who was a talented and known painter, she picked up his paints and brushes, and found a natural flow. She has ever since been a self taught mixed medium painter, using mostly acrylic spray cans and oil paints to create her pieces. She's metamorphing through each creation, pushing herself out of her comfort zones to continuously refine her techniques.
Now also succesfully building her own Jewellery brand, starting off with self taught wire wrapping jewellery, she will be taking her visions to the next level with study in Jewellery Design, Keep an eye out for collections dropping through 2020, under
