About Vicky Frederiksen
"I was born and raised in North Vancouver and both my parents were architects and amazingly creative in the arts. Art and creativity were always in my life. Drawing and painting was a passion when I was very young.
In 1978, at 23, I moved to California and got a job as a draftsman making structural steel drawings. I never thought of myself as creative, since the drawings were very strict and exact.
In September 2007 I needed a drastic lifestyle change and moved to Bowen Island. I decided that if I wanted to live differently, I would have to think differently.
I discovered through painting in oils in the style of the old Masters, in a workshop with Stuart Slind, that I could be creative and imperfect as well. In fact, sometimes the imperfections turned out to be “perfect”. I loved the idea that I could flow with my inspiration when I let go of the outcome.
Through doing personal work that went hand in hand with my painting, I now live with integrity, inspiration, full of enthusiasm for life and my love of the arts."
About Carol McNaughton
"Upon retirement from the Graphic Arts industry where I supervised graphic artists, I had time and space to explore my own creativity. Soon after moving to Bowen island I started to paint, first in watercolours and then in oil.
Drawing and painting were pass times I enjoyed as a child, and I was encouraged by parents and teachers to develop my talent. Upon graduating from high school I enrolled in the art college in Calgary.
My favourite subjects are portraiture and animal painting. Living on Bowen has given me a lot of inspiration. I love and draw from its scenic beauty."

Not going to make it to Bowen? Come visit us in Kits for a Styling Party instead!
This year, we are trying something new for our clients that can't make it to Bowen Island. Come to our store on 4th any time between 9-5pm, where our staff will be available to help style any of your existing Movement wardrobe, or take the time to help find exact colours or styles for any of our new items.
If you just aren't sure how many ways a piece can be worn, or were curious if you could extend your wardrobe by adding a single other skirt, dress or top in a different colour, we will have extra staff on that day to take as much time as you want to really style yourself a new look!
Light refreshments and loads of fun!
WHEN: Saturday November 5th 10-7pm
It's hard to believe! It's been 2 years since we opened our doors in one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Kitsilano Vancouver.
