Discovered the beautiful works of Daisy Campbell on our Facebook page and had to further share!
We love the meticulous detail she puts in with each line… creating a mix of strength and boldness while simultaneously evoking delicate movement!
Take a peek at more of her work HERE! We love when our paths cross with new artists… incredible how much inspiration this world has to hold!
Starting her schooling in the realm of photography and further expanding into illustration… artist Juliana Neufeld’s partnership with Lomography for a DIY of their new La Sardina camera only makes sense!
Inspired by eighties graffiti, children’s illustrations and beautiful textiles, we love the final piece Element Advocate Juliana Neufeld created!
Stay tuned for some upcoming tee graphics in our collection by Juliana and check out her most recent project on our organic totes with West 49 HERE!

Our good friend Lisa Solberg’s dream-like, large-scaled oil paintings can keep any viewer entranced for hours. Growing up in Chicago, and graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor of Fine Art, Lisa now lives in Los Angeles, where she creates her beautiful, expressionist art. Her media of choice is oil paint, creating flowing silver-grey metallic strokes in her newest installation, STALKER, which will debut at THIS Los Angeles this Friday, June 15th, from 7-10 pm.
Within this installation, Lisa combines her already well-known and appreciated painting skills with attention to drawing. Reflective insulation panels with cutting techniques create poetic, bold and thoughtful imagery focused on the sublime.
Check out Lisa’s installation at THIS Los Angeles, located at 5906 North Figueroa Street Los Angeles, California 90042. You will not be disappointed!!!
STALKER continues through July 14, 2012.
Gallery hours: Thursday – Saturday 12-6 PM, and by appointment.
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

My name is Sam, hailing all the way from the great dairy state, Wisconsin, to intern for Element Eden for the next 8 weeks! I am so happy to be here, to be surrounded by such inspiration all of the time. Whether it is our designers, Advocates, pro skaters, or the founder of Element himself, I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to be part of the experience.
In fall, I will begin my last semester of college, finishing up my BA in Fashion Merchandising with a Business Administration minor. It has been quite the journey, trying to figure out what I want to do and who I want to be. It’s almost ironic that I’ve ended up at Eden, because their whole mission is about “living, learning, and growing” and ultimately inspiring others to make a difference in our world. That is what college, and life for that matter, is all about! I am excited to bring my new experiences home with me to the Midwest, and be able to share them with others in the future!
Follow along to hear about some of my experiences along the way!

Element Eden asked me who I surround myself with and what draws me to those people. I thought I would introduce you to some of my friends who inspire me. Somewhere along the way they were planted like angelic seeds in my life and I love watching them grow! So many of my close friends are artists, constantly creating their own art and living out their dreams. There’s too many people like this in my life that I simply adore and are hugely inspiring to name here, so consider this a sliver. (A big sliver since I didn’t post yesterday.)
Meet Ixchel, such a small girl filled with so much magic! Ixchel is named after a Mayan goddess and she seems like she’s from another universe or perhaps a whole universe exists within her. She creates photographic images that you want to climb inside of and make a new life for yourself without boundaries. Just looking at her photographs takes you on a trip to places you can’t find on any atlas. All shot with film and no photoshopping! Look!
This is Niki. I met her on a porch of a house called “The Legion of Doom” in Ohio when I was hitchhiking across the country at 17. She very much seems a part of me. Living on opposite coasts I still feel like I grew up right beside her. She’s a genius the way she moves color around on canvas, wood or paper. You know that story about the boy who turned everything he touched to chocolate? Well this is the girl who turns everything she touches to beguiling beauties. Niki and her art are a spellbinding sea yours eyes need to swim around in. http://planticandwingishscenery.blogspot.com/
Mariqueen is a mermaid. No seriously, you’ve heard the lore of singing sirens that make ships wreck? This is her! Her voice gives you shivers and it does kind of kill you in a way. She’s a mother, lover and singer of the supernatural descent. Currently hypnotising, mesmerising and making waves in her band How to Destroy Angels drown your ears. http://howtodestroyangels.com/
Steve is cosmic. If Picasso came back to life as a hunter of life his name would be Steve. Steve is a magician of the arts, he dances to the beat of his dreams. From sculpture, mosaics & installations, to abstract paintings erupting in color he manifests a world of love you can live inside of. His art is not only a life of dedication but a life celebration. http://stevefawley.com/
This is Chris. I think you can see just from this picture that the energy of this being is extraterrestrial. Yep this picture was taken from one of his performances somewhere on a moon orbiting in the outerest parts of outer space. I know I wish was there too! The energy this alien invests into the music he makes can take you there! Listen to his project Free the Robots it will take you on that universal voyage you’ve been dreaming of. Chris is also one of the owners of a really impressive restaurant here on earth who is celebrating their 4th anniversary this weekend, The Crosby go! http://www.myspace.com/freetherobots
June June she’s sucha swoon you just want to spoon her forever! Aside from being sweet like a pile of puppies, she’s made of crystal prisms that cast rainbows of light on everything in her path. You know that Rolling Stone’s song “She’s a Rainbow”, that’s June. June is an artist, designer, blogger, film maker and snowboarder. She’s kind of a mystic sometimes she disappears and then resurfaces with some new zesty project or film that captivates your heart. http://blog.boatpeopleboutique.com/ http://www.peepshowfilms.com/
Finally there’s Paul who is one of my oldest friends. He divides his time between New York and traveling to the edge of earth. Right when he’s teetering so close to the edge you wonder if he’s fallen off and disappeared forever, he propels himself back to the present dimension sharing stories of people through photographic artifacts. His photographs transport you into intimate introductions with people and places that are so alternative to the nature you know, you wonder if it’s a dream. Paul has dedicated his life to exposing these hidden treasures through portraits you can see here.
A friend of the Element Eden family, we always look forward to our next encounter with Kyleigh, eager of the topics that will arise and the beautiful inspiration that will come of our time with her.
Our summer plans? We aren’t quite sure, but we know if will span from the mountain tops to the deep blue…
“Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.” -Rupert Brooke
Known to many as a “wishing jar”… we prefer to call it “inspiration for the future”.
Recycle an old bottle and use it to keep little notes on goals, ideas, inspiration and quotes. Looking back is a beautiful reminder of how you’ve grown or possibly where you should grow.
The first note going in our jar of inspiration comes from our Advocate Amy Purdy: “It’s vital to be aware of what we take, and what we give”.
