It has been a fantastic winter having some solid time to work on Untamed, and I have loved how much I have learned and grown. I brought out my beautiful new Spirit collection, practiced printing my photographs onto fabric, did every course I could find on marketing, social media and business and revamped the whole website. I am now ready for the summer to get back to markets and meet some of you.
I have grown to love selling my designs at music festivals and different events around Western Canada over the past few years. It is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a super-cool community, meet other talented people, and see and hear feedback on my designs.
Even though there are no festivals and big shows this summer, you can come and see my designs at one of my markets this summer; I am super excited to be back at the Invermere, BC market every Saturday morning from June 12th - September 11th and Kimberley, BC market (Thursday evenings) June 17th, July 15th, August 5th and September 9th.
Also, I feel so honoured to be joining forces with a group of talented artists for the Functional Art Show at the Columbia Valley Arts Centre in Invermere, BC, from June 21st till July 10th. If you are around, you have to come to check it out. I love how much talent and support there is in this area. I have taken some beautiful photos of the local area and got them printed onto fabric for the Ego back panels, and I will be showcasing them at the Gallery. I am so excited to get working on this and see how they look. If you don't already, you should follow me on Instagram because I will be sharing the process. Watch this space. https://www.instagram.com/untamedfernie/
If you can't come to see me at one of the markets, you can still order on the website. I am working hard on making the online store very streamlined and easy for you to order your cosy Untamed creation. If you are unsure of sizing, uncertain what collection is for you or what print or colours you like, you can now set up a personal consultation with me, the Untamed designer. Consults are free and can be phone calls, texts or emails depending on need. So head to the website to learn more.
I have also set up a super cool virtual shopping assistant on the website to guide you around and help you find things like shipping, sizing, returns, the featured artist or setting up a free consultation. Sadly, she is just a robot and can't answer specific questions, so if you have a personal question, send me an email or set up a personal consultation.
Have you checked out the new Spirit collection and the new incredible feature artists I have available for the Ego back panel now on the website? I love working with different artists and seeing their stunning artwork come alive. Check out more here
Well, I had better get going; I have lots to do to get ready for market season. So remember, take a breath and enjoy.
Be Untamed. Proudly Canadian
