BIANCA D'AMICO - Mixing Up Magic, Humor, and Imagination
Bianca D’Amico is the founder of Chaparral Studio, a creative and design studio where she makes all kinds of accessories and gifts. She also collaborates with her mother on landscape and garden design. Everything has a very California centric spirit, inspired by nature and LA’s culture.
Chaparral Studio is very much a reflection of who Bianca is. Part of it planned, and part of it a result of her genuine self coming through in her work. Graze through her Instagram and you will find three very common themes: Nature, Feminism, and Humor. Oh, and of course her dog Joni Mitchell. From the surface these themes don't seem to have all that much in common. Mixing those together would probably make for something very outside the box. And they do.
Bianca spends most of her time creating stuff that some may call odd and different. A caldron of ideas, passions, interests and imagination. But this is why she has something so special. Bianca has found a blend that doesn’t always make sense, and has turned it into child-like curiosity. Her studio is a workshop full of magic and wonder. Things meant to expand your mind, or at least just make you think.
Life can become so monotonous at times. A place where everything and everybody can seem predictable. But Bianca and Chaparral Studio is a breath of fresh air.
