My name is M.J. of Heart & Hearth, I am a Mum, Vancouver Islander and a Maker. I recognize the importance of being present in my children’s daily life. From “Soccer-Saturdays” and dance recitals to bedtime snuggles I want to support my children with my time and attention. Being self-employed allows me to do this. I am lucky to be born and raised on Vancouver Island. Through all the phases of my life I have always felt a connection to our beautiful landscape of old-growth forest, mountains and the Ocean. I am honoured to be a part of this community and choose to support local artisans, farmers and businesses.

My main medium is fabric. Aside from the visual and tactile beauty of fabric it also presents so many possibilities. I love the challenge of sewing and the satisfaction of the final product. Heart & Hearth allows me to exercise my creativity in an eco-conscientious manner. The products I’ve chosen to focus on offer eco-friendly solutions to the problems we are facing as a society.
