Artist / Fashion Designer
Miss Octopie is an artist and fashion designer with a BFA in Painting. She found her passion in the Japanese art movement of "kawaii" ( かわいい ), which is a way for people to express their opinions against negativity by finding their own personal happiness through a cute and colorful lifestyle. Growing up heavily inspired by the Japanese street fashions of Decora, Fairy kei, and Lolita, she always hoped to someday have her own clothing line.
Over the past five years, her dreams have been coming true! Miss Octopie owns and runs a small business where she transforms her whimsical art into clothing, jewelry, keychains, prints, and more. She sells her merchandise at various conventions all over the country and on her online storefront (http://octopie.storenvy.com/).
