Born and raised in Santa Monica, CA, Beba spent a good deal of time at the beach. Summers at the beach and pier with her mom and brother were the norm. After eighth grade, Beba moved to Carlsbad, CA where she finished high school, married, and had her two daughters. At the end of 2010 she moved to Maui to help a friend and she’s never left! She’s always loved strolling the beach in search of mermaid treasure. Having to leave her extensive ocean bounty collection in Carlsbad, she picked up right where she left off. Taking long walks on the south Maui beaches proved to be encouraging! After eight years of beach combing she decided to do something with her extensive collection of sea glass, sea shells, and driftwood. Her art is a natural extension of her collection and the love of her Island home.
