Born in Northern California, Tandie Mast earned an athletic scholarship to play volleyball at UC Irvine in 1995 briging her down the coast to the beautiful beaches of Orange County. While at Irvine she studied the relationship of Sociology and Film graduating with a degree in Sociology and a minor in Film Studies.
Eager to explore different cultures Mast moved to London, England where she worked at the architectural firm HOK, located in the heart of the city. There she developed an intense love for urban culture and reluctantly moved back to the states upon her work visa expiration. Tandie navigated different design professions, relocated from California to Arizona and was anxious to find a soul satisfying career.
Unable to find work during the Great Recession Tandie opened 'Nesta Home' on a new online marketplace called Etsy. She listed her travel photography and sketches for sale on the site and found success on the new platform, giving her an opportunity to start a business selling her creations.
Almost 10 years after opening up shop Tandie now resides in Huntington Beach, CA with her husband and 2 small children. She splits time between her Orange County and downtown Los Angeles studios where she specializes in combining her photography with different printmaking techniques.
