Nue Conservationist/ Artist/ Educator
Nue organic body jewelry and indigenous art was created with the intention of sharing my passion for indigenous tribal art and Buddhist art from around the world and educating people on the cultures that create it. My hope is to help promote these cultural expressions, so that people will support them and keep it as an economically viable trade so that these traditions don’t disappear. I do my best to source my inventory from fair trade and sustainable companies. My long term goal is to open a non profit gallery that would sell indigenous art from around the world with the proceeds going to fund art programs for children in the host cities as well as the indigenous community that the pieces came from. I’d also like to implement a cultural exchange program.
