Meet the Artists


Stefanie is the founder of Original Genes. She was born and raised in downtown Toronto, ON, that's why you'll notice a lot of her designs are city inspired! She started the company after painting a jacket one day when looking to add a bit of creativity to her life. Stef loves encouraging others to express themselves creatively and encourages everyone to be their awesome selves!
