Beci orpin was born in Melbourne during the early 70s to hippie parents. For the first 3 years of her life she lived out of the back of a landcrusier travelling around Australia, and never had to wear shoes. On return to Melbourne she moved into an inner-city commune, where she developed a love for drawing and decided that was all she ever wanted to do. She has a BA in textile design at RMIT and has been working freelance and exhibiting her artwork both locally and internationally ever since. With husband and business partner Raph, she started clothing line Princess Tina in 2001, and now has a clothing line, Tiny Mammoth; she also creates homewares and stationary-based products under her own name.
