briana, born in washington and raised in "minnesnowda", has been a resident of the bay area since 2005.   

she was raised with a deep respect for the natural environment, by parents who taught her the importance of recycling, composting, and reusing things in creative ways.  briana has taken the valuable life lessons and created a life philosophy and style of art around them.  almost all of her creations - jewelry, wine cork mats, journals, and knitted accessories - include recycled and repurposed elements.   

through URBAN BAZAAR®, she hopes to share with others her passion of giving new life to the old and discarded through the creative reuse of secondhand and recycled materials.  

briana graduated from san francisco state university with a b.a. in sculpture and ceramics, and was a licensed san francisco street artist from 2009 thru 2011.  in 2014 and 2015, she became a mom and hopes to instill in her daughters, the lifestyle she was raised with and practices today.
