Amy Stewart was raised in 108 Mile House until moving to Vernon at the age of 9. After leaving home Amy left to Vancouver and enrolled in counseling and psychology courses to pursue a career in counselling, then moving to Edmonton deciding on a career in Child and Youth care. During that time she moved to the Netherlands to do an exchange program in Art and Play Therapy. Creating has always been part of Amy’s life, as not only does she love it, but finds it a huge stress relief when working in her field. She started Olie Designs in Vancouver, in September 2007 and took her love of knitting and turned it into a business. Now Amy works as a Child and Youth Victim Support Worker and is happy to be working in a field she loves while being able to also creating knit items to love and share.
