After creating a body of photographs using resin, she decided to merge her passion of photography and surfing. Finding new and vintage surfboards, she redoes the front of the surfboard. She then applies her photograph and re-coats the surfboard with epoxy resin. The surfboards became so popular, she branded her company STOKED!
And she is STOKED! Celebrities such as Dennis Quaid and Bruce Johnston have commissioned her to do one of a kind surfboards.
Stoked also gives a percentage to various non-profits with each sale of a surfboard. Non-profits such as Surfrider and Santa Barbara Hospice have benefited from a Stoked sale!
