-Frank Lloyd Wright
Slowly sloping towards the ocean, Los Angeles is a bazaar of curiosities, marvels, and sun-soaked fantasy. But cradling this dream by the beach, acting as segue from the make-believe to the reality of the surrounding deserts is the chaparral. It is a landscape in between. It is from this space that Chaparral Studio fashions the wispy end of strings into reminders of these possibilities.
Now the edges are expanding. The blanket laid out is unfolding further.
Chaparral Studio is a proscenium of arcing lines of flora, bones, feathers, and crystalline stones that frame the glow of that distinct California light scattered upon the spaces we live and those we remember.
A creative studio based in Los Angeles, California – Chaparral Studio aims to weave together our fondness for flora, a good joke and our ethical approach to designing spaces and things that indulge and tickle your imagination. Learn more about what we offer on our services page.
Bianca D’Amico studied art, receiving a BFA from Otis and an MFA from CalArts. Her affinity for playing with plants, a few of which are like her, native to California, led to creating terrariums, floral design and landscapes. With a prominent feminist agenda, hands-on-can-do attitude and an obsession with sustaining a studio based lifestyle D’Amico founded Chaparral Studio in 2012.
When not in the studio or on a job site Bianca can often be found hiking in the bush or driving her truck off road seeking adventure with her trusty companion an Australian Shepherd named Joni Mitchell.
