Micaela Aldana Salatino, AKA "Micky"

Micaela Aldana Salatino was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1978. The artist and self-proclaimed “crafty vegan” attributes her love for art and fashion to her family’s creative roots.   Inspired by her grandmother, a seamstress and knitter, and taught to crochet by her mother, Micaela began crafting outfits for her dolls at 5 years old.

Helping give rise to the term “upcycled”, Micaela has presented eco art classes in Long Beach, CA since 2010.  Supporting the process of creating valuable products from waste materials, Micaela teaches kids, teens and adults how to create green works of art from left-over scraps of fabric, yarn and environment-friendly supplies.
