Coyote Creative is a locally owned business operating out of Ocean Beach, California, specializing in hand-made home decor featuring live plants and natural materials. 

While nature in general has always been one of my passions, I took a long road to get here. A degree in physics, and jobs in everything from zookeeper assistant, to software analyst to retail manager have all brought me to where I am. I started Coyote Creative in early 2015 as a side job where I could branch out creatively and try out new ideas. When my work was incredibly (and a bit overwhelmingly) well received, I knew I had something that I could build even bigger. Starting at local farmers markets, I began to expand my product line and really find the feel and aesthetic of my brand and company. I now do many festivals, street fairs, and events in addition to markets, and I was very proud to open a shop and studio last October in partnership with 1502 Candle Co.

I've now made the jump to running my business full time and can't believe how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place and get to do the things I love. Best wishes to all my fellow San Diegans as well as my east coast family and friends. The people you're with make the adventure even greater.
