North of Fifty is the design label of digital artist and owner of Silhouette Fashion Boutique, TJ Wallis.
Adopted as a toddler, TJ uses art and design to connect to her Métis heritage. "I was always attracted to indigenous culture, even before I discovered my own ancestry. I have Metis art throughout my home and I even married a First Nation man. I love these connections between my past and my present, especially in light of the fact that I grew up in a typical Euro Canadian household and had no knowledge of my birth family until I was in my thirties."
