Cristy Johnson draws inspiration from the natural world and brings it to life through her designs. Raised in the enchanting woods of Spuzzum, British Columbia, she has a deep connection to her indigenous roots as a proud member of the Nlaka’pamux Nation. Today, Cristy resides near the seaside in the picturesque town of Sooke, British Columbia, where she incorporates colours and shapes from nature into her work, such as leaves, trees, and the sea. She also combines these with geometrical shapes and art deco classics to bring an awe-inspiring beauty to her designs. Cristy was the very first recipient of the British Columbia Achievement Foundation’s “Young Indigenous Entrepreneur of the Year Award” and she was invited to participate in the celebrity gifting lounge at the Much Music Video Awards. These experiences and others humbled Cristy early in her career, giving her the confidence and inspiration to move forward with her designs.
