Age: 32

Profession: Creative director at Raygun How would you describe your style? Thrifted or recycled. I started shopping at thrift stores when I was in high school. The clothes were inexpensive and environmentally conscious, and I wasn’t wearing the same thing that everyone else was wearing. I also have a lot of hand-me-downs from fashionable friends.

Any fashion regrets? Shopping at companies that employ slave labor and that steal from artists.

Where you shop locally: Goodwill outlets and Thrifty Bitch, which is a friend’s pop-up company that sells vintage clothing and accessories.

The piece of clothing or accessory you couldn’t live without: My Sex and Ice Cream overalls. Also a silver ring that I bought from a street vendor in Bolivia. It’s unique and a beautiful souvenir from that trip.

Other things you couldn’t live without: My dog, Steve, a German Shephard puppy who’s almost a year old.

Passions: Art and activism. I’ve been making art and thinking about social justice my entire life. I’m a painter and an illustrator and I make installations and performance art. Most of my work is about my experience as a woman. I also co-own the Portrait Studio; we go to events and draw people’s portraits and then they take the portrait home.
