Hi, I’m Becca Stevens the creator of Freedom Rise. I’ve been drawing since I can remember and it has always been my dream to turn art into something that mattered.
Another one of my interests has been the psychology of what makes people happy. In my teen years, I was obsessed with this, reading every book I could get my hands on. The one thing that really stood out was connection: being connected to the world around us and finding joy in the everyday, little things.
Throughout the years I’ve had my ups and downs, but I found that surrounding myself with nature was the one constant that always calmed my soul.
Whether that was going for a hike, camping or just simply enjoying fresh air by opening a window.
During this time I kept drawing, but it was when I learned how to screen print that my art found a new outlet - clothing. From this Freedom Rise was born. It has become a place where I express all my creative endeavors, but more importantly it’s been a place to spread this idea of connection. Perhaps you can’t go on a hike or get out into nature everyday, but it’s my intention to bring you this feeling in a form that you can wear everyday - a reminder or maybe an extension of your inner journey.
Each piece is designed to be comfortable enough to wear to yoga or hiking but also stylish enough to wear casually. They are manufactured locally to me in Ventura, CA.
