Meet Cecilia Grayson
In 2012, Cecilia and her husband relocated to beautiful Northern BC. Shortly after, her entrepreneurial instincts began to flare. “My husband, who is Ojibway and a member of the Wickwemikong First Nation from Ontario, took on a position working for a local First Nation’s organization,” she explains. “Living on the North Coast, I was inspired by the pristine nature and the many First Nations cultures, so I started sketching designs.”
Growing up with entrepreneurial parents, starting her own business came naturally to Cecilia. Cecilia enjoys working according to her own schedule and being her own boss. She loves the challenge takes pride in creating beautiful, well-made products.
“Terrace has such a diversity of cultures, all living together, sharing and learning from each other,” says the designer. It is such a peaceful urban environment along with a beautiful atmosphere. The people here are so personable.
In her free time, Cecilia enjoys skiing at Shames, taking fitness classes and cooking. She is passionate about researching fabrics and styles and also loves going to both The Terrace and Red Raven Art Gallery and the markets. “I’m very optimistic about the future of Terrace,” says Cecilia. “There are tons of opportunities for growth! New businesses are popping up and there are definitely people supporting them."
