Name: Rachel DeJohn // Surfy Birdy Art
Hometown: South Florida
Currently Residing: Lake Worth, Florida
Inspiration to create your art: I just want to spread something colorful and positive, that reflects the things that I find beauty in: the ocean, nature and the beauty that surrounds it, simple living and wanderlust, with retro flower power vibes.
Motivation to continue making these incredible pieces: Smiles
What you're doing when you are not in the studio: Chase waves and smiles, also work side jobs to feed my van and pay rent on my tiny home.
Why you chose to collaborate with Aloha for People: I love working with good people that strive to make a difference in this world. You guys are doing something rad to give back to children in need of clean water and I am happy to spread aloha with you.
Favorite place you have traveled: I love traveling anywhere that is tropical and filled with nature and fun waves. So far I have been to Costa Rica many times and Puerto Rico. Also Eleuthera and my last trip was really unforgettable to Kauai, Hawaii. I really recommend any of those places there is so much beauty, peacefulness and simple living. Also traveling around where you live is a great adventure as well. I have traveled quite a bit with my van around Florida. It's the thrill of the hunt sometimes, and some good buddies to share some waves with. Always makes for a great adventure.
