- Founder, Jackie
Small Island Girl, Founder Jackie, is an artist, designer, and marketing specialist, who comes from a long line of creators,
artists, and entrepreneurs. With her multi-national Dutch & American family, Jackie grew up on the beautiful "friendly island" of St. Maarten/St. Martin, in the Caribbean. Influenced by centuries of accumulated cultures on St. Martin, often called the "melting pot", Jackie developed an intense love for stories, cultures and lore. Her life on the beach and an artistic background also contributed to her love of nature, art and all things handmade.
In her adult life, adventuring around the globe, Jackie developed an even greater appreciation and passion for beautiful, handmade artifacts that weave stories across cultures. And an even stronger love of nature, the sea and the beaches of the world.
Lately, living her 'good life' in Miami Beach, Jackie underwent a period of new consciousness. Armed with her love of art and the sea, she has wholly embraced conscious business standards, slow-fashion and small-batch production, and insists upon sustainable and ethical practices, to preserve traditional arts and to enrich the lives of those who dedicate themselves to creating the wonders which decorate our lives. Every single piece in the Lore and Lotus shop was handpicked by her discerning eye, built from a life-long love of art / handicrafts.
"As an artist and designer myself, I know how much heart and soul is put into expertly crafted creations, whether it’s a a hand-dyed and woven rug or a soldered jewelry piece, watercolor painting turned print or a hand-blown glass vase. My passion for aesthetics has inspired me to collect handmade wonders and "lost" arts, as I appreciate and share the story behind the creation. So with this dedication and inspiration from a life well-traveled, Lore and Lotus was born. With gratitude for my experiences in the richness of this world I wanted to share that magic, beauty, and wonderment with others in the form of enchanting artifacts sourced sustainably from around the globe."
