Erin H., Den Designs, Artist + Founder

Whitehorse, Yukon

Den Designs motto is to “Inspire your every day.” Both Erin and her late father believed that life is too short to not be doing something that you are not only passionate about but that makes you and others happy. Using reclaimed wood and a mix of her own photography, Erin turns wood into pieces of art. One of a kind, handmade wood prints and other artful home décor. In Summer 2019, Den Designs opened a storefront in Carcross, Yukon, a very popular tourist destination.

Where did the inspiration for your business stem from?

I lost my dad to a very rare cancer in 2016 and started Den Designs in honour of the best dad ever, Dennis (hence the name!). We donate 10% of every sale to western Canadian Cancer lodges in memory of my dad.

All you can do is be you and choose to keep going, even in the face of adversity. It will make you stronger in the end…even though it is hard to see it sometimes.
