Small town living is growing on me… sort of. Yesterday, we met the local postmaster or rather postmistress who knew all the goings on in this bubble of a world on the edge of the ocean. And I realized once again, how small this town really is. Haven’t felt the urge to leave for the city quite as yet… especially since the whales have been breaching in the ocean right in front of our house, a good excuse to interrupt some writing.
Also happy to report that there is much in the way of sustainable design happening here.
Local surfer, artist and designer (well she moved from the big city as well a few years ago) Angie, runs Pina Styles, a sweet little outpost of creativity, art and clothing right here in town. Her art is a witty reflection on everything from the depressing state of our environment, to how we treat animals and also how we live right in the midst of all this wildness, even in cities.
The limited edition, original prints are screened onto soft bamboo and organic cotton tees, there’s a great line of baby (and newborn) wear and lots of other treats.
Hope you enjoy Angie’s eye-catching art for some afternoon inspiration.
I LOVE the shirt I bought from Pina last time we were in Ukee. It’s a long sleeve tunic sort of thing with a big wide neck and hood. It’s got a neat print with feathers and leaves that I just love. I bought it at the end of spring and I’ve been waiting for the weather to get cooler so I can wear it more often!
