My niece, Charlotte, is my best friend. She was born in 2015 with an extra chromosome (aka Down Syndrome) and in 2017, she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. She is a true hero, despite the challenges she faces on a daily basis.
She is the inspiration behind LOTTE321 — Lotte is from her name (Charlotte) and 321 is an ode to Down Syndrome (3 copies of the 21st chromosome). Although Charlotte is just six years old, my vision is for Charlotte to take over LOTTE321 when she is old enough.
To support Charlotte and other individuals with Down Syndrome and Special Needs, I have decided to donate 15% of proceeds to different charities supporting these causes. Each month we will announce which charity we are partnering with!
Thanks for supporting LOTTE321, Charlotte and every other individual like her.

At Sandal Gap Studio our mission is to fill the gap. The gap of knowledge and understanding between society and individuals with disabilities. We break down these superficial barriers using art. We build new ventures for young artists so that the gap is filled with beauty, acceptance and understanding. Maybe we aren’t so different after all.
Sandal Gap Studio exists to share the beauty of inclusivity through art. We intentionally expose society to the disability community in a comfortable environment where art is used as the common language among the verbal and non-verbal.
