Artist Spotlight: Mikaela Morgan
"I was born in 1983 on Salt Spring Island with gypsy blood, into a family of creatives. I started travelling the globe at age 18, trading my gift of art for basic needs and the joys of the nomadic lifestyle. My dream is to move to Costa Rica one day with my family, paint brushes in hand." - Mikaela Morgan
How did the collaboration come to be?
Mikaela fell in love with Bewildher founder Nadine at the shambala music festival almost 9 years ago. Nadine had a different business name at that time and was selling festival onesies called cat suits.
Last fall Nadine saw one of Mikaela’s paintings of crystal wolves on Instagram and wanted to create leggings. An obvious f-yes for Mikaela. Mikaela sees Nadine as a power house momma on the leading edge of slow fashion and hopes to continue their love affair of art on fabric.
Mikaela Morgan’s soul purpose as an artist is to paint the unseen truths that words can not say. Her favourite subject to paint is the marriage of untamed beauty and the frequency of the mystical
Founder Nadine commissioned the print as the subject is dear to her heart; her sons name is Bleiddwn, meaning 'wolf'.
Limited Edition Design
Most prints are limited edition and we will not make more than 500 copies, a fairly low number when compared to offshore garment factory minimum order quantities that start in the thousands. We have a special relationship with our local Canadian factory that allows us to produce in boutique size quantities and keep each print special, not mass produced.
We will restock some designs up until the 500 pieces/print limit, with the exceptions being:
- Prints that support an artist/photographer: These will be restocked indefinitely based on popular demand/permission to reprint, to support the artist/photographer.
- Prints designed in honor of a loved one. These will be restocked indefinitely based on popular demand in loving memory.
To add this limited print to your closet, order here. This item is now in-stock and ships in 1-3 business days.
As we diversify our collection alongside our efforts to shine a light on female creators, innovators and wild women we have collaborated with BC-based artist Mikaela Morgan.
