Hello! I’m Steph.

Resident Book Nerd & Embroiderer


Owl Eyes Fibre Arts & Designs creates unique hand embroideries dedicated to a deep love of literature, fantasy, and whimsy.  As an avid reader and nature enthusiast, I am passionate about reclaiming embroidery for modern uses that are sustainably minded. I create pieces that give me joy, transport me to fantasy realms, and speak to other book nerds. I want to share these pieces of whimsy with you, inspire you to create, and encourage you to keep dreaming. Whether looking for an addition to your gallery wall or a custom piece inspired by a daydream, artwork from Owl Eyes comes to life one magical stitch at a time.

Owl Eyes Arts lives and works on the traditional lands of the Anishinabek Nation and the traditional territory of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson-Superior Treaty of 1850. As a settler, I am grateful to live here and thank all the generations of diverse Indigenous, Inuit, and Metis peoples that have tended and taken care of the land. Their stories, beliefs, and concepts about the land and the water continue to guide and inspire me to carry forward a commitment to listen, (un)learn, and grow.
