July Influencer – Lauren Hanhn

We are so excited to announce that our July 124 Grand Market Influencer of the Month is Lauren Hahn, Edmonton-based Lifestyle Blogger, boutique owner, and personal trainer! 

Although you probably already know Lauren from her beautifully-curated Instagram feed (@laaurenhahn), she is also a personal trainer and the co-owner of an Alberta-based women and children’s clothing boutique called Blush & Navy! 

Blush & Navy was co-created by Lauren and her best friend Alexandra, with the vision of creating an online boutique that supports sustainable and slow fashion. 

By purchasing high-quality items from small, local, or family-run shops across Alberta, Lauren and Alexandra are able to reduce their carbon footprint, support small shops and local makers, and sell one-of-a-kind clothing items! 

Along with work, Lauren is also a mom to two adorable children and shares her daily journey through life and motherhood on her Instagram page!  

We are thrilled to have Lauren as our 124 Grand Market July Influencer of the month! Be sure to follow her at @laaurenhahn on Instagram and check out @blushandnavyboutique


June Influencer – Amy Dixon

We are so excited to announce that our June 124 Grand Market Influencer of the Month is Edmonton-based visual artist, Amy Dixon!

“Finding early inspiration in the mountain and ocean vistas of her childhood in Nova Scotia, she is drawn to natural beauty and place in her art. In 2009, Amy exchanged raging waters for vast prairie skies when she settled in Edmonton, Alberta. She has since been captivated by the yellows, blues, and pinks of Albertan summers as much as by the comforting stillness of frigid, untouched fields of snow. Her desire to express beauty has extended beyond Canada and her travels around the world have influenced much of her work. Working primarily in acrylic, Amy has showcased her abstract and landscape paintings locally and across Western Canada.”

Needless to say, if you aren’t familiar with Amy’s artwork, you’ve been missing out!

Not only is Amy an incredible artist, but she’s also a true supporter of all things local in Edmonton. She is constantly rallying around our city’s small business owners, artists, and makers, and she often attends small, Alberta-based events to sell her artwork in person.

We are so excited to have Amy as our 124 Grand Market June Influencer of the month! To check out her beautiful paintings, follow her at @AmyDixonArt on Instagram or visit her website https://www.amydixon.ca!

If you’d like to see Amy and her artwork in-person, she will be stationed at the Whyte Avenue Art Walk, happening from July 5-7th, 2019!
