How it all started

My journey from creating clothes (i can c u yogawear), teaching yoga (i can c u yogaand as a handpoke tattoo artist (i can c u tattoo) - yoga means to unite, I feel it is my journey to unite all parts of me. From the outside it might look as if I have just added all my talents on a page, but they are all connected. I would not create clothes if I did not spend hours dedicated to the body, either through drawing or through yoga. Teaching yoga was a natural step after having practiced for so long and meeting many yoga teachers on my path. And when I started to tattoo, the needle felt like an extension of my hand as I have spent a decade holding a needle but also having a feeling for composition, the human skin and how to hold a space.

i can cu yoga wear was born when I lived on a remote Scottish Island in the Inner Hebrides. I had to be creative as we had many power cuts and the evenings where dark and long in the winter. That is when I started to create clothes from scratch by hand only. That allowed me to be independent from electrical devices but also gave me a peaceful work to do.

Throughout my life I never seemed to be able to find anything that would fit me on the High Street anyway. It was even harder to find white clothes that I felt comfortable in, that is why I specialised in creating clothes that work also in white, the colour I wear when I practice and teach Kundalini Yoga.
My fashion is also influenced by my experience as an artist, painting and drawing the human body. Everybody has a different shape and that is honoured in my work.

I use your body measurements to create your garment and this means the clothes will fit you! And the material will last a long time. I resource my organic fabric from a small company that is in close contact with their producers. The quality is amazing and a dream to work with and to wear! Feeling good in your body throughout the day is adding to your wellbeing on all levels but keeping an item because you love it instead of throwing it away after a season makes also a huge difference in our throw-away society.

My handpoke tattoos are nature inspired. I am a forager and use plants for their medicinal properties or to eat. I connect to the plants and study them before starting to create a design. Most of my creations are channeled for the individual. This process is hard to put into worlds but it feels like the design creates itself and I would not stop until this process feels complete. My customers often mark a special event i their life or a meaningful connection and a handpoke tattoo integrates their moment in life,  armed on their skin. As handpoke tattoos are done without using a machine, the process is rather meditative and allows integration.
