i live and work on the coast of maine, using a retired, rehabbed school bus as my personal studio. i have a background in sculpture and design, and a knack for bringing those elements into my everyday life in a very practical way. i also have a strong conscious drive to respect and preserve the earth's resources, and a personal interest is finding simple and beautiful ways to sustain them.
my favorite objects have an uncommon character. when put together, these things create a unique story, but also appeal in a timeless, versatile way. i design clothes you'll want to wear on an island in maine, in a market in marrakesh, or in new york city.
as individuals we have opportunities to support the environment in which and the beings with which we live. being conscious of the things we buy and make is one way we can take responsibility for our impact on the world around us, which is why I use ethically and sustainably sourced materials. non-organic cotton is one of the most heavily pesticide- and herbicide-treated crops on earth, and opting to work with alternative materials is part of luksin's mission. for me, the aesthetic of luksin is the fun part- the ethics of it are the important part.
when you buy a piece of luksin, you can feel content in the fact that you are supporting a positive movement towards sustainability while adding a new favorite thing to your collection.
