The Wahine Project

The Wahine Project 398 Shasta Avenue
The Wahine Project was created in 2010 as an effort to reach young girls around the world who would otherwise not have access to the resources that would allow them to surf. Whether that lack of access is due to geographical, financial or other reason. The Wahine Project seeks to break down the barriers that prevent the participation of youth in ocean sports and provide them the opportunity to not only become proficient water humans but as a result of this relationship, increase their awareness to the vast possibilities of a future that will amplify their voice in climate change, environmental justice and give them a sense of social responsibility that the ocean uniquely provides.

Robin Winfield

Robin Winfield at Sweet Elena’s Bakery & Café 465 Olympia Avenue
Born in St. Louis, MO in 1956, Robin Winfield grew up surrounded by art and artists and was taught a deep appreciation of them by her parents Rodney and Betty Winfield. Before graduating from John Burroughs High School she spent half a year in Tokyo, Japan as an exchange student. Winfield then attended Smith College in Northampton, MA where she majored in Fine Art. In 1979, Winfield worked with her father on a large fabric commission. As a result she found a love of the tactile and continued with a 10 year exploration into wearable arts after moving to Wellfleet on Cape Cod. Having taken photographs since a teenager, Winfield finally found the direction she continues in today. In 1989 a photograph became a focal point on a canvas and her painting finished the story around it.

The collection is all custom-made and Shearn embraces opportunities to design explicitly for clients looking for “an alternative to the prevalence of western motif lighting.” With optional colors and designs are available, Shearn’s specialty is chandeliers that provide lighting for large scale spaces. His chadaliers and scones have been designed and scaled for entry foyers, great rooms, dining rooms, pool tables and breakfast nooks. but They inspire and awe through the timelessness of his design.
