The beginning

What is Northern Behavior? What did it come from?

Well, to answer this question, I will have to tell you a bit about myself.

I am 26 years old at the time of writing this. I have 3 kids and a loving spouse. I was born and raised in Goose Bay, Labrador, and spent a lot of time traveling. I moved across the provinces in the east coast, eventually making my way to Ontario. I considered myself to be an artist for as long as I can remember. If I wasn't out picking berries, checking the nets and traps with my grandfather, I would be home drawing, painting or sculpting out of clay. I attended a vocational school for art and graduated. As I grew up, I started exploring on my own, eventually making the hitch hiking trip across Canada to see the rocky mountains in the west.  I dreamed of becoming a tattoo artist, a portrait artist, or a comic artist, and pursued these for some time on my travels before coming across clothing design. I never thought it would be for me. After suffering a bad long boarding accident in Ontario, I ended up moving back home in Goose Bay to live a quieter life away from the city. I settled down with the love of my life, and we had a baby, while I took in his other 2 children as my own. It was here that I was allowed to fully flourish and focus my talents. I quickly fell in love with the idea of running my own business, and started right away. I had some twists and turns and got discouraged at times, doubting myself and opening other side projects as a way to test myself and see if this was really what I wanted. I came back to Northern Behavior, the name had stuck with me, and deep in my heart I knew this was what I was meant to do. As a proud Canadian and lover of our beautiful country, the culture, landscape, animals and the many people, I wanted to create something that represented my feelings and experiences here. Through my creativity and artistic expression, I hope to create a brand that people can relate to in some way, as a Canadian, or a lover of the outdoors or aboriginal community that shares my love of our great land.
