  • Waste Not Want Not

    Published Feb 13 2019 in slow fashion, sustainable fashion

    Waste Not Want Not
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    My fabric is printed in very small batches and there as almost no waste at all. For instance, with my scarves, the only waste I get from them is a tiny little bit of frayed fabric that is cut off when the edges are being sewn. I never have yards or large chunks of leftover fabric as I am able to use every last bit!

  • The Hidden Owl Original Art

    Published Feb 11 2019 in art, original painting

    The inspiration behind my latest releases: The Hidden Owl

    With a true connection through the wisdom of the soul, the majestic owl has many symbolic meanings:

    Intuition - Change - Life Transition - Wisdom - Mystery - Intelligence - Mysticism - Protection - Brilliance - Perspective - Independence - Power

    If you have ever been honored by a visit from an owl know that an amazing gift has been bestowed on you. Animals are usually called on those who share the same energy and we now know the owl is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and comes from a place of wholeness.

  • Elements & Principles of Art & Design - LINE

    Published Feb 06 2019 in art

    Hi all! I thought I would start sharing some tid bits about 🅰️RT that I thought you might find interesting.

    So many people say that they ‘don’t understand art’ and I want to try to demystify it cause art is here for YOU!

    The elements and principles of art and design are the foundation of art. Honestly, words like ‘elements’ and ‘principles’ make me gloss over with boredom and I can recall clear as day how much I hated learning this stuff in art school.

    But it can be fun! We are talking about paint and scribbles and beautiful compositions for goodness sakes - lets get inspired!

    Here’s the simple breakdown: Elements are like words, and principles are like sentences. Understanding these gives you visual literacy and takes the mystery away. Once you learn these simple bits you can look at a piece of art and describe what you see using a common language. If you have deeper insight into how something was created or built, like a song, a movie or a beautiful building, it will hold more value for you. But that’s not to say you can’t just love a piece of art cause you love it - of course you can! This is just here for you if you are curious to dive a little deeper.

    Once you are familiar with this visual language you might find yourself looking at the world from a new perspective… seeing the elements and principles of art & design as you walk through your day or look through your camera lens.

    Line
    The first element we are going to talk about is LINE. Line is a path created by a point moving in space. Different tools make different kinds of lines. Lines can be thin and smooth or wide and rough. Pencils make lines, brushes can make lines, scratching a surface can make a line, planes make lines as they fly across the sky, or a snowboarder can draw a beautiful line as she carves down the hill. Try to find an interesting line in the next photo you take.

    I’ll be back soon to talk about the next element: SHAPE

  • A Legging for the Goddess in you

    Published Feb 05 2019 in Leggings, New Products

    Owls are a mystical and beautiful creature and it’s no wonder that the Goddess Athena held owls sacred in her time. As the Goddess of wisdom and strategy just as the owl spirit, her traits of honour and courage were bathed in femininity and womanhood like the Hidden Owl Legging. Taken from my original painting of The Hidden Owl, the design can be seen on my newest legging release as well as the latest Pom Pom toque and scarf from my 2019 Winter Collection.

    Hidden Owl Leggings

    With a true connection through the wisdom of the soul, the majestic owl has many symbolic meanings:

    • Intuition, ability to see what others do not see
    • Change and life transition
    • Wisdom
    • Mystery
    • Intelligence
    • Mysticism
    • Protection
    • Brilliance
    • Perspective
    • Intuition
    • Independence
    • Power

    If you are not yet intrigued by this mystical beauty, read on…

    There are countless superstitions and myths surrounding the owl, but they continue to be a source of wisdom, spirituality and intellect. Among First Nations symbolism the owl represents wisdom, foresight and the keeper of sacred knowledge. The Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre tells us, “the Owl is a great foreteller of weather conditions and can be observed to identify changes in environment. Owls are a reminder to take care with your actions, to think of the future and to love your family. They can be identified in Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations art by their large forward-facing eyes and ear-holes, a small curved beak, a flat face with a conspicuous circle of feathers around each eye”.

    If you have ever been honored by a visit from an owl, know that an amazing gift has been bestowed on you. Animals are usually called on those who share the same energy and we now know the owl is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and comes from a place of wholeness.

    * I am proud to donate a percentage of sales to the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre here in Whistler to support our cultural knowledge to inspire understanding and respect amongst all people. A place where mountains, rivers and people meet, Whistler and the SLCC embodies the spirit of partnership between two unique Nations who wish to preserve, grow and share our traditional cultures.
