Clarianne’s creativity has been a catalyst behind the growth of local entrepreneurs and especially to women-owned businesses.

People are drawn to her aesthetic but also her warmth, and opens them up to say “I can take this next step confidently.” She is a full-time remote employee for a tech company, and the owner and operator of Lace & Confetti Design Studio, and she recently shared with YMM about what she loves about the Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo region, and more.

YMM: What does community mean to you?

CA: For me, community is a place where all members feel included, welcomed and safe. It’s when people can lean on each other during hardships and lift each other up. Fort McMurray has really shown me how strong and resilient our community is in the face of adversity.

YMM: What accomplishment are you most proud of?

CA: I initially started my small business as a hobby and it was a big step to put myself out there and offer design and creative services. Over the years, through word of mouth, I began to get more and more opportunities. Now what started as a hobby, has grown to be a creative studio where I provide everything from graphic and web design to video and photography.

For me, this is a huge and unexpected accomplishment and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of our community. I get so much joy from helping other businesses launch and grow their vision. Whether it’s branding or a website, photos or video, seeing my clients succeed is really the biggest accomplishment for me.

YMM: What motivates you?

CA: My passion to create something meaningful and my desire to help others so that they can also succeed and achieve their goals.

YMM: What is something people are always surprised to learn about you?

CA: Most people aren’t aware that I also have a full-time job on top of running my creative studio solo. It can get busy at times but I love being able to help others kick-start their dreams in my spare time.

YMM: How have your priorities changed in the last 10 years?

CA: My priorities/mindset have shifted when it comes to measuring productivity. I’ve learned to be more intentional with my time. I’m purposeful with whatever projects I take on. I like to run it by my three core pillars: Does it feed my innate need to create something? Does it bring me joy? Is it serving an area of my life that I’m curating?
