Clover June -- Photographer & Graphic Design

I was Born & raised on the west coast of Canada and am very lucky to call "Vancouver Island my home. I grew up in a creative environment which allowed my curiosity to be nurtured. I was taught to value a slower type of living, noticing the value and care that lives in the in between and being patient with life’s process. Within this, there is so much beauty when we pause instead of rush. I love playing with photography as a medium as it captures so much in moments that we may otherwise miss."
