Welcome to the #ShopYourCircle Pop-Up!

Welcome to the first-ever #ShopYourCircle Pop-Up! We’re thrilled to have you join us for this special event that showcases these 7 incredible local artists.

Hermann Edler

Victoria
Art: Wooden Folk Art

Hermann worked as a graphic designer for 35 years in Austria. He moved to Canada in 1997, where he discovered his art of wooden folk art a year later. He draws inspiration from European Folk art and nature, where even a piece of wood or stone can initiate the start of a project.

Lorna Moffat

North Vancouver
Art: Textiles

Lorna was born in a village just outside of Glasgow. Her mother had always encouraged her to experiment with different fabrics, which she transformed into clothes and room sets for her dolls. She studied embroidered and woven textile design at The Glasgow School of Art from 1982-87, completing both an honours and postgraduate degree. She draws inspiration from nature, travel experiences, and art galleries.

Louise Valentine

Gibsons
Art: Silks

Ever since she could pick up her first crayon, Louise has always had a passion for art. She draws inspiration from nature, landscapes, and colours. Her favourite artists include Monet, Matisse, and Iris Van Herpen.

Mikel Lefler

Sunshine Coast
Art: Jewellery

Mikel has always had a passion for creative expression. She completed her studies in science, but knew she had to follow her passion for designing and making jewellery after graduating from university. Two decades later, Mikel continues to create beautiful pieces. She draws inspiration from kindness in all its forms and people who are passionate about what they do.

Jan Macleod

Ladysmith
Art: Paper

Since she was 5 years old, Jan has been exploring a variety of mediums, from sewing to embroidery to calligraphy to wool. She started making paper after discovering that the same plants used to dye wool could also be used to make paper. She is a firm believer in learning by doing and draws inspiration from her life experiences as well as trusting that attention to a medium will inevitably lead to something new.

Cameron Dougherty

Vancouver
Art: Glass

Cameron first discovered glassblowing in 2007 as an elective while studying Supply Chain Management in university. That spark quickly grew into a passion for the process and material. He started his own practice in 2017 and draws inspiration from mid-century modern aesthetics.

Haejin Lee

Vancouver
Art: Ceramics

Haejin Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea. She graduated from Hong-Ik University in Korea, receiving a Masters Degree in Ceramic Art. Her ceramic sculptures won the Grand Prize in 2009 at the Seoul Press Ceramic Competition in Korea, a Special Award in 2012 at the Taiwan Ceramic Biennale, and many other awards across the globe.
