West Coast Cactus + Succulent Scene

Welcome to Atomkinder

A community built by and for cactus and succulent lovers.
Meet some of these people by reading about their stories below.
My main sources of inspiration are from natural forms and gothic nostalgia. Growing up in the 90s. I’ve always loved the work of artist HR Giger, and grew up immersed in the dark world of Tim Burton.
I've always been into a stark black and white pallete for my paintings, and coming from a critical art school of thought I wanted to make pottery that reflected a newer and more cutting edge attitude
I wanted to take a succulent to a cactus and succulent show and I didn’t like any of the pots that were available so I went on YouTube and figured out how to make a simple pot.
It's important to cultivate a strong moral compass and code of conduct. It's as simple as asking: how do the actions I take and the decisions I make impact the world around me?

What is it?

Atomkinder is a labor of love. Love for cacti and succulents. Love for the people that help grow, preserve, protect, and educate other people about these amazing plants.

Our goal is to help spread the word about this wonderful scene, and to highlight other people that are doing the same. Every week we will feature some of these growers, collectors, educators in our Spotlights section. Hopefully their insight into the hobby will help all of us grow.
