I joined Patryka Designs as a fashion consultant in May 2022 and love working here. In my short while here I have observed the connection the consultants share with each of their customers and appreciate the beauty in that relationship. Patryka represents a choice of clothing that is perfect for Island living, working and travel so in my opinion, who would not want to work here?

I am inspired by my surroundings to create art so working at Patryka allows me a connection with our local community. When I am not on shift I am creating fine art jewellery in sterling silver and gold. I love to paint in acrylics and oils and am enjoying the time I have in the garden. My husband and I share a passion for travelling, our journey started in South Africa in 1995 since then we have lived in three countries and visited 24. We have lived in three Canadian provinces and are hoping to make Vancouver Island our final destination. Being new to Vancouver Island with our two young adult kids and two dogs we are excited to be here and to explore our new surroundings.
