About Sabrina

In a nutshell, Sabrina Smelko is a freelance creative, a lifestyle shop curator, a yoga instructor, a tv personality and the owner of everyone’s favourite adventure-pup, Piper.

With a BAA in Illustration, Sabrina takes a holistic approach to design—be it of spaces, brands or life itself. With experience in advertising, tech, publishing, marketing and education, her myriad creative roles inform her approach and contribute to a diverse and rich portfolio. She has illustrated emojis for Firefox, portraits for IBM, and has designed countless brands and blogs. She has animated spots for OLG and Instagram GIFs for startups, has had her own show on HGTV, and has travelled the globe speaking about entrepreneurship, creativity and home design.

All the while, Sabrina has kept a blog—this very blog you’ve stumbled upon now! Here, she shares all about her creative work and life as well as monthly playlists, her home design and renovation projects, thoughts on wellness, creative inspiration and oodles of resources for the modern millennial.

When she’s not creating or teaching yoga, Sabrina enjoys mountain biking, cooking and exploring / overland camping the Pacific North West with her partner.
