My name is Celine Sawchuk, and I am the Owner and Founder of Mind Palace Design. I was born and raised in the Black Forest of Germany. Since I can think I loved creating things and playing music. I come from a very musical and creative family, also my parents own a web and graphic design company in Germany. With hree, I started playing violin and when I was five years old I started playing. I also took singing lesions as a teenager and played in several bands in Germany as well as in Canada (Urban Connect, The Cube, Sudden Inspiration and Allison Crowe and Band). I went to different schools that brought me more and more into the world of Arts, and taught me about music, design and art history. Also, I studied graphic design and photography at the "Academies of Communications" in Pforzheim Germany, which was leading me to the decision of starting my own business. After my studies, I moved to Canada where I married my husband. I absolutely fell in love with the people, the country and everything that comes with it. My husband and me build a house on Salt Spring Island with the help of family and friends, and I opened my little business "Mind Palace". Canada has helped me to commit to adventures and to follow my passion.
