My art and design are natural extensions of who I am and where I live. My paintings reflect the abundance of natural beauty here in the Sea to Sky corridor and my Made in Canada clothing always strives to be comfortable, unique, sustainable, high quality and in alignment with the slow fashion movement. When choosing fabrics I favour recycled materials and natural fibres such as bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, organic linen and silk. Heidi clothing is made to last. These are not pieces that you’ll throw away after 5 washes because they're falling apart. You should expect to love your clothing for years!
The Heidi line was born when I was at home full time raising my two boys. I had been a high school art teacher prior to becoming a mom, and was looking for a creative outlet. Once I discovered how to print fabric with my paintings, I was hooked, and the rest is history! Endless ideas and inspiration keep me excited to move forward. I hope you enjoy my shop.
And P.S....what is Slow Fashion anyways?
“Slow fashion is the deliberate choice to buy better-quality items less often. When purchases are made, they’re environmentally and ethically conscious rather than trend-driven. The garments are durable and lend themselves to repairs, not disposal. Slow fashion is also transparent: Buyers know where their clothes are coming from, and items are often handmade by artisans. Consider it the “farm to table” of the fashion world.” - Digiday
When I think of Heidi, I think of joy. She’s a vibrant, loving, and happy presence. She’s passionate about her family, our community, and this beautiful place we call home. Our shoot with Heidi included a group of women staying on the Island at her mom’s house. We hiked and swam and explored while changing clothes and taking photos. At night, we huddled around the table with amazing food. The clothing she creates exudes this type of energy and experience—free spirited, natural, creative, energetic and so beautiful.
I respectfully acknowledge that I live, work and play with my family on the unceded Stl'atl'imc and Lil'wat territory.
