Meet the Makers

Meet the makers behind Soaring Scavengers.  Nat & Riley have been roaming Canada together for just shy of 8 years after meeting in Toronto Ontario, January 2011.  They have inspired and challenged each other to evolve as artists and individuals time and time again, both bringing a collection of skills and experiences to the table.  Residing on Vancouver Island now for over 6 years, the island provides them the quiet, natural inspiration they need and a strong support group of creative and kind hearted like minds.
