I was always surrounded by my lovely artistic family ; My father and brother - canoe builders, and my mother and sister - piano players. Creativity runs in my blood.
As much as I loved the country life, as I grew older I wanted to experience the city, which brought me to London Ontario where I graduated Fashion Design from Fanshawe College.
As much as the country and city are completely different, there is one thing that makes them the same. Mother Nature. I still get chances to enjoy the outdoors while living in the City. And I am passionate about the beauty of it all.
That is what inspired me to create Planet Playground. I wanted to create a line of clothing that respects Mother Nature. So instead of buying new fabric, I recycle old fabric. My mission is to provide unique clothing to our society without sacrificing the world in which we live. To teach families that recycling is more than just the 'blue bin' - that it can be a fun, and creative thing. I want people to get thinking about the impact they make on our beautiful world that is often taken for granted.
