A sunrise is a beautiful start to the day, and was the start to Mountain Moves wearable art too. My Sunrise For Two leggings were the very first custom leggings I designed using a photo I took of a brilliant sunrise view from my living room here in Canmore (they are still a top seller today).
A few years ago, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her birthday was approaching and I wanted to do something special for her. I wanted to make her something that would remind her that every day is bright and a fresh start filled with rays of hope. She was healing from surgery and starting to do yoga again, and I thought a custom pair of yoga leggings with one of my images on them would be perfect.
After finding a Canadian company to work with to print and sew my design, I ordered a few pairs - one for my mom, one for my sister, and one for me. When friends (and strangers) saw us wearing them I kept getting asked if I would have more made...so I created more designs, took orders, and Mountain Moves wearable art began!
All Mountain Moves clothing and accessories are designed, printed and hand sewn in Canada. The clothing fabrics are eco-friendly and most are made at a fabric mill right here in Canada too. No sweatshop labour in these babies! 100% ethically made and proud of it.
Most people traditionally think of artwork as something you hang on the wall or have in your home. With my Mountain Moves wearable art & accessories line, I want to change that and create artwork you can wear, carry, and even cuddle up with. It's Artwork on the Go. From leggings, dresses and toques, to bags, phone cases and pillows, each piece features one of my photographs or paintings of our beautiful Canadian landscape or wildlife.
The mountains are my home, my sanctuary. My husband Andrew and I live in Canmore, Alberta with our furry family, enjoying all the great outdoors and mountain life has to offer. The stunning vistas and precious wildlife of Alberta and the Rocky Mountains are an endless source of inspiration for my paintings, photographs and of course, Mountain Moves.
Add a splash of mountain style to your active wardrobe or home decor and surround yourself with landscapes that you love no matter where you are!
