Meet Your March Gwapa Gals!

MEET GWAPA GAL: MORGAN SANDUSKY

Hi there! I'm Morgan and I'm the founder and creator behind Queer Abstraction. A little about me: my favorite color is mustard yellow, I have a BFA in Interior Design, and I'm a Virgo sun. I started Queer Abstraction because I love making things with my hands and I realized I was always looking for queer representation in the world of jewelry. My goal is to become that representation myself and curate products that anyone can be proud to wear!

5th Dimension is a botanically elevated collection of holistic skincare and self care products.A synergistic blend of plant-derived ingredients capture the essence of Earth and serve as the basis for all of our formulations. Each product is crafted with the intention of cultivating vibrancy.Our products are herbalist formulated, with respect to the plants used and the people they serve.
Meet The Founder
Founding herbalist Jayna Anderson creates intentional, holistic skincare that supports the body in restoring balance, vitality and vibrancy. Through herbal supplements and botanical skincare, she is challenging the notion of what skincare looks like.Jayna started the brand with a strong vision, without any business experience, no capital, and while living in an isolated desert town. She started selling her unique skincare formulations around the 2nd anniversary of her sobriety, relying on social media and word of mouth. Within three months, she realized that her holistic herbal products were transforming the way people viewed skincare, and she decided right there that she would dedicate her life to challenging the harmful narratives of the beauty world while providing high-quality transformative skincare to her community.

MEET GWAPA GAL: MAYA

The mission of Mutiny Club is to create fun, colorful and retro earring designs that can bring moments of happiness and peace to people that may be going through a tough time, especially with the year we've all been through. The process of making these earrings is like a type of therapy for me, so if I can bring joy to someone from something that I've made, I've done my job.

MEET GWAPA GAL: LAUREN-ASHLEY

Pineapple Sundays Design Studio is a Stationery + Gift Company based in Chicago and created by multi-passionate illustrator and taco lover, Lauren-Ashley Barnes. Her love of color, hand lettering and self care can be seen in every product that she has. 

MEET GWAPA GAL: LARISSA

MEET GWAPA GAL: AVANTI 

glōu is the brainchild of Avanti: a dancer, lawyer, stop-motion animator & entrepreneur originally from Sydney, Australia (now a proud Angelena) with over 10 years of experience across entertainment law & over 27 years of dance training.

A multi-hyphenate in her own right, hopping from dance class, to work, to her studio required clothing that was versatile, comfortable & sustainable. glōu is the culmination Avanti’s personal journey as a creative professional, and insight from her wide community of like-minded artists. She also wanted to create a brand that creates products & experiences that inspire & motivate you to find your glōu.

Avanti is passionate about supporting female founded brands & encouraging women to take the leap & pursue their wildest dreams. In 2021, glōu will be partnering with non-profit organizations in India that help educate & create work opportunities for under privileged women.
