Amanda Crocker is the visionary behind Daydreamer Designs located locally within the beautiful unceded territory of the Komox First Nation. As an Indigenous Support worker, Amanda inspires individuals with her ability to create thoughtful dream catchers as earrings, pendants, and hanging art pieces. She uses her First Nations ancestry, as well as her Irish, Scottish, English, and French background to motivate her pieces. Her father a member of the Penelakut Tribe located on Penelakut Island, BC gifted her a dream catcher when she was a young girl. She has found that the creative process of designing her own works of art has kept her in touch with her First Nations roots and encourages the support of authentic Indigenous art.



Going Coastal Creations is an explosion of color and fine lines from Chemainus, BC.

Creativity pulled from a mindful practice and meditative drawing, brought to life with paint and inks.

Stephanie Gillen is a transplant to Vancouver Island from the prairies of Alberta and has found her home and her voice in the salt sea air and old-growth forests.

Indigenous Contemporary Beader

Hi! I am Theresa, the creator of Maggie Magpie Collections, a unique handcrafted jewelry line for individuals who appreciate fashion forward works of art that represent a piece of Canadian history. As a contemporary First Nations seed bead artist, I aspire to promote First Nations fashion and design as progressive and modern, without jeopardizing ceremonial or spiritual practices and beliefs.

I use beading techniques passed down to me by my “Kookum” (grandma) and I create organically sophisticated jewelry designs for all occasions. I purchase quality local materials such as semi-precious stones, gems, metals, and gather raw natural shells and stones on my travels. I create jewelry that is representative of my culture and has deep personal meaning.


Indigenous Mixed Media Artisan

The Metis Mama and Papa are a husband and wife team, Shelly and Mark, from Calgary, Alberta. Mark makes the earrings and Shelly creates the Cedar Spirit Dolls. The Spirit Dolls are smudged and have healing intention to ease the heart and souls of the new owner.

Through their mutual love of art, nature, healing, culture and spirit, their soulful inspired creations have reached out and touched the hearts of people all across Canada and the United States.


Jewelry Designer

I believe that recycling can be beautiful - that's why I use recycled and vintage materials for all of my jewelry, found in thrift stores, yard sales, and grandma's jewelry box. These recycled components are then combined with natural stone, wood, pearl and shell. All findings are new and unused for your safety.


Visual Artist/ Henna body art

A new artist in our roster, Ava Luna is a professional henna and visual artist born and raised on Vancouver Island and new to the Comox Valley. Since childhood, Ava has had a natural talent as an artist and excelled in the arts program in high school and in college.  Much of her inspiration comes from nature, animals, and textures. She enjoys using vibrant colors with alcohol inks and acrylics, combined with clean-lined illustrations. She has won two painting competitions and has had illustrations published in a novel and a journal. Ava has been a successful henna tattoo artist for 6 years and can be found at local markets, festivals, events and online selling her art and clothing screen printed by hand with her own illustrations.


Indigenous Wire wrapper and beader

Marianne Barbara Scow is a Kwakwaka'wakw artist from the Pacific Northwest coast. Born in Vancouver - raised in the Comox Valley.  

A creative and curious nature has guided Marianne through many artistic adventures, but the world of Wire Wrapping captured her heart.

Jewellery Designer

A new artist in our roster, this visionary has produced some of our favorite contemporary pieces. 
Shelley Macdonald Jewellery Designer Inc. is a retail Jewellery Business
operating in Whitehorse, Yukon Canada.
Shelley MacDonald earned her B.F.A in Jewellery Design and metalsmithing from NSCAD University in Halifax N.S in 2011. Shelley started her own business in 2005 and has been designing and creating jewellery in the Yukon since 2011.
Shelley interprets natural elements in metal to obscure the connection between botanical forms and the human body. This earthy style reflects her study of botany, which displays tenacity over urban structures. Shelley challenges herself to represent the relationship of natural elements to the lines and shape of the body while maintaining the strength inherent in the metal. Since moving to the Yukon, Shelley draws and incorporates her inspiration from the northern beauty of her visual environment, which emulates through her more recent collections.
From a small studio in Whitehorse, Shelley uses a variety of materials including upcycled leather and fur from the Yukon, metals, stones, ivory, musk ox horn and wood. All of her items are handmade and one of a kind using an array of techniques such as fabrications, casting, piercing, riveting and soldering



Angela leads the typically unconventional life of an artist and is known for breadth and richness in style.
Named for my dog Tilly, Tillys Cozy Hooks is a crochet accessory line formed from the love of thoughtfully creating apparel with my own hands. My favorite thing about what I do is helping people feel confident by wearing something they feel good in and watching them light up when they try them on.
Recently, we fulfilled a long-time dream of moving from the Alberta prairies to the west coast. I’m very excited to start creating with the inspiration of this beautiful island.
Get in touch with Sage and Tree Gallery if you’d like to find out about their available pieces.

Ceramics, Paintings

I was born Jennifer McIntyre near the Rocky Mountains, but am known to most by the nickname Jenja. To me, Art is the answer to all life's questions. I decided to make art my passion, also my career by seeking out North Island College where I completed my diploma and then went on to graduate from Emily Carr University, through North Island College's external programs on Vancouver Island. Since School ended, I have been actively programming, teaching, making art, and doing events/shows regionally. I work in many mediums: drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics,
and piano are among my favorite forms of expression. I love that art can bring together a community and provide so much joy and fulfillment.

Hand crafted concrete planters, homeware and jewelry.

Cold Gold is a collection of home decor made of concrete based out of Nicole's home studio in Victoria,, BC. Concrete is strong and lasting which gives it a sense of timelessness with subtle imperfections that make them a one of a kind art piece.

All of our concrete pieces are made in my home-based studio in Victoria, BC using locally sourced product wherever possible.

Illustrator/Designer/Tattoo Artist

Currently living in Bear River, NS. Mi’kmaw Territory.

Self taught artist born and raised in a small town called Bridgewater, nova Scotia. French Ancestry on my fathers side from Quebec.

Imagery inspired by my life and experiences. I am inspired by animals I have encountered and by my friends. Inspired by dreams and visions. Inspired by plant medicines and resulting journeys. Inspired by the natural word, the spaces I get to call home, the music that is playing and the different phases of life I have been through. Inspired by the love I have shared.

These shirts are all up cycled, thrifted, second hand, transformed pieces. With there already being so much clothing that already exists I don’t see a point on buying brand new items. This helps also to make each piece unique. I do the printing at a studio on Halifax called Rad Storm. A volunteer run collective that helps teach people to silk screen and provides a safe and accessible space for anyone. I use water based inks.

Super grateful to the creative spirit that allows me to make art and for all the support that makes it possible.
