(we kick ass)
Teamwork makes the dreamwork
Founder of Earthgroove
Earthgroove is about believing in myself, my dreams and connecting my passions in life. I love to be fit and primarily run and do hot yoga. I want people to feel a connection when wearing or using an Earthgroove product. I have always loved the power of words as inspiration and to help me stay intentional in my life.
The women sewing and creating these garments are my inspiration – they are beautiful. We have come together to make a difference in our community and the world. Together we are developing a unique product that represents Canada and our group of women as “strong and free”.
Sewer and Trainer
Sewing for me is like self-therapy. It is a relaxing part of my life that takes away my stress. My creations make me happy and I love to create unique things when I sew.
When I teach women to sew it starts new friendships and connects me with many people. I love to share my knowledge with others and collect knowledge from them. “I love color, it makes me very happy”.
Lisa studied fashion design at the Art Institute of Vancouver & graduated with honors in 2010. Upon graduation, McLeod worked at a sportswear manufacture in Calgary Alberta for almost 4 years, back in 2012 she met Jill Boychuck who was just starting to develop Earth Groove Activewear.
It all started with a collaboration on the logo design, then blossomed into creating beautiful graphic prints inspired by Jills Mom’s artwork. The pair have a great soulful connection that bring Jill’s Ideas to life become stunning visual wearable art that is rich and full of depth. Lisa is passionate about creating fashion graphics and pattern making.
Not only designing with Jill, Lisa has her own label of ecofriendly activewear and is an avid strength trainer & gym rat! Fashion, fitness & the environment are her passions and that’s what drew her to work with Earth Groove.
I’m kinda old, but I can still jump.
