Follow Friday - loveMaking Designs

Posted by Expert Village Media Technologies Collaborator on

Happy Friday! It has been a long time coming - getting back to blogging and sharing our favorite makers, shops, and local events with the world and we are excited to share with you our newest stockist! Meet loveMaking designs, hailing from Revelstoke, BC - where you can find the tallest ski hill in NORTH AMERICA. We are excited to be working with loveMaking and want to introduce you to them too.
Tell me a little bit about your business. What do you make or sell? 
loveMaking is a collaboration between Trish Hartwick and Kiley Dare. Trish creates illustrations that we then silk screen on to clothing, artwork, cards...whatever we can get our hands on. We aim to create Canadian designs that aren't the norm.
When and why did you start your business?
We started loveMaking (haha) in 2012 out of a desire to create and be our own bosses. At the time we were living in a small mountain town where it was hard to find a meaningful job in the arts so we thought "why not create one ourselves".
What inspires you?
Nature, we know how cliched that sounds because everyone is inspired by nature but that's where all of our inspiration comes from. We're based in Revelstoke, BC where we spend so much time in the mountains it would be hard not to be inspired by what's around us. Plus we're major animal lovers. Most of our work either has an animal or a mountain in it somewhere.
What words of wisdom or advice can you share?
You're going to have good times and tough times. It's hard work running an artisan business but so worth it. It's easy to lose sight of that at times so try not to forget how awesome it can be!
