Randi is a designer and master artisan who has two thriving businesses involving leather work, Ora Leather Goods and Aro Upholstery. She moved to Powell River from Vancouver and has enjoyed living rurally while working in a large studio space to continue expanding her businesses. She prioritizes spending time in nature with her son and dogs, and is excited to be a part of a growing community of creatives moving to the region from larger urban centres.
Powell River for me really epitomizes that saying that it's so important to find your village. I think I've really been able to do that here. I think there's a lot of like-minded folks of different ages coming here to live in a really healthy way and creating this beautiful place and lifestyle. I'm really honoured to be here during this time.
