Hi there, thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet! I’m Miriam Dema, an artist and maker based in Los Angeles, CA.  I make modern heirloom quality hand crafted goods inspired by a love of adventure and exploration.

As a native 3rd generation Californian; my love of California and the Southwest filters into my designs and creative expressions as I aspire to spark creativity, adventure and exploration in others. I have a background in fine art and printmaking having enjoyed a career in the arts for many years.

Current projects include a line of vintage souvenir inspired pennants and prints as well as a line of quality hand crafted leather goods. All of my silkscreened goods are hand printed in small batches using environmentally friendly and archival screen printing techniques and the leather goods that I make are made in small batches using locally sourced materials. I also take on custom projects and private commissions on a regular basis.

My husband and I run a local company, SSR Sound– we provide audio equipment for live shows, weddings and events so I’m busy making things happen for special events every day. We live and work in the mountains above Los Angeles with bobcats and mountain lions for neighbors but we’re about 20 minutes from downtown, kinda the best of both worlds. Feel free to come by and we’ll go for a hike!

My work is available online and at local shows and retailers, I love seeing where my things end up over the years. If you’ve purchased one of my many sold out printed editions send me a photo of it in your home or hashtag it #miriamdema online!  Since 2007 I’ve been blogging about what I make and our other various adventures.

I love chocolate, bike rides and tacos. In that order.

See you later! Miriam Dema
