I’ve always had an irrepressible desire to meld my love of art, nature and fashion. I was the kid in 3 different art classes who also made her own clothes, bags and jewelry.
My company Pinto & Co. began when family and friends insisted on paying me for my work, and encouraged me (gently yet firmly) to make it official. Now, I transform paintings and drawings of organic forms (like flowers and gemstones) into unique, luxurious silk scarves.
My vision for Pinto & Co. is to give people tangible connections to nature and art in their daily lives. The transformation of perception, to painting, to pattern, to textile is incredibly powerful. I’m still totally stoked every time I think about fashion as the journey of a piece from one dimension to three — and then on through time as a unique human experience. I hope Pinto & Co. designs spark inspiration and joy in every person they touch.
