Alina and Johanna’s friendship started at the tender age of two, a time in which we would eat Peter’s bucket ice creams and wear no pants. We have been inseparable ever since and are currently working together at Beau Est Mien, a printmaking and design studio based at Paper Mountain.
Alina enjoys hunting for pimples to pop (beware), granny naps, and cutting food with scissors. Johanna is fond of prairie dogs in outfits on Instagram and Lorenzo’s lunch specials at the Re Store. She has been Alina’s right-hand woman on many art projects and embarrassing hula hoop routines.
Our first artistic collaboration Bead Friends Forever stems from a mutual love for pastel colours, babies, faces on inanimate objects, and spending time together.
