In The Garden Of Good & Evil

A bit Tim Burton, a bit Snow White, these alluring images look like pages from a Gothic fairytale. Created by artist Caia Koopman, her original characters have an alternative, rebellious and vulnerable beauty about them. Contrasting innocent images of birds and flowers in pastel colors with jet black hair, waif-like bodies, dark rimmed eyes and burgundy stained lips, Caia creates a truly unique heroine that is both sweet and dark, alluring and intimidating. Choose from Garden Tampon Case (left) and Farewell Wallet Case (right). Made in Los Angeles. Sold individually.

Caia Koopman

Caia Koopman is a native of California and was born in Livermore. She majored in fine art and earned a B.A. at UC Santa Cruz, California. Santa Cruz turned out to be the place that seduced her to the local skateboarding scene.

In addition to receiving an academic education, Caia also learned to skate ramps, streets, pools, and Derby Park. Skateboarding led to skateboard graphics, and her first limited edition team T-shirt design for Santa Cruz Skateboards.

Her artwork has been featured in numerous print media including Surfing Girl, Mademoiselle, Details, Girl's Life, Snowboarder Magazine, Teen, Teen Style, Teen People, J-14, Fine , and others. Caia designed T-shirt graphics and promotional illustrations for many companies, such as: Quiksilver/Roxy, Hurley, Op, AT&T, and Casio.

Caia's paintings have been used commercially for many years as graphics for snowboards, skateboards and wakeboards for major companies such as K2, Morrow, and Hyperlite. Caia has also been featured on MTV, "mtv sports" as an athlete/artist for her snowboarding and painting.

Caia has shown her paintings in a number of galleries around the world and most recently at La Luz de Jesus in LA. She is currently working as a freelance illustrator and painter in Oceanside, CA.

Caia is inspired by nature, dreams, politics, and life.

Overpriced, poor quality

      Comments about CAIA KOOPMAN CASES:

      This case is undoubtedly cute but it is on its way back to UG. When it got here, I opened it and was unable to close it back. The metal pieces were not aligned properly, so the latch (if you could call it that) didn't work. IF the closing mechanism were improved, it would still be slightly overpriced (without taking any sales into account). As it is, I will be losing about $15 due to shipping costs. Very disappointing. (And frustrating because tampon cases are not easy to find - especially cute ones!)

        Comments about CAIA KOOPMAN CASES:

        This product has been a great addition to my purse. Keeps my tampons corralled so they don't get squished or fall out of my bag and embarrass me. To top it off, the case is beautifully decorated! Also fits easily into my pocket for purse-free trips to the Ladies' room.

                I bought two of these. One to give to my adult daughter and one for my daughter-in-law. Both work in offices. This has to be the most discreet item that I have come across. It makes me wish it was around "back in my day."

                      The artwork is gorgeous so I'm keeping it, but you can only fit 2 tampons in it at a time (and often, the wrapper sticks out. I guess you could probably fit more if you have travel size. The metal appears to be pretty cheap and the edges are a bit sharp, but it's useful enough. probably better used as a cigarette case (capri slims!)
