Marika is a nature lover who can often be found scouring the shorelines of Lake Winnipeg looking for lost treasures. She has always felt most connected to the earth, and a strong desire to create with her love of treasure hunting and being outdoors has created a cozy spot for her artistic side. Beach combing provides an outlet to be environmentally conscious cleaning up the beach, while reusing the materials into both creative and beautiful wearable and eye pleasing pieces. The history of the glass, who held it, what was it originally and how long has it been tumbling through our waters is something that fascinates and brings curiosity to both her mind and the people who will wear it.
