Novelist/ Fashion Designer
From a bush cook in the Yukon to a helicopter pilot; from a travel magazine editor in Singapore to an architecture publication editor in Toronto; from an environmental columnist at the Globe to the co-founder/designer of a cult following fashion label- Horses Atelier, Heidi Sopinka has lived a life full of surprises and detours but leading to the right direction. Now looking back, writing has always been a thread connecting all the dots.
The idea of her novel – the Dictionary of Animal Languages was born 12 years ago, but was being fermented all these years and didn’t get published till recently.
Heidi has a rich story to tell. Pour a glass of wine and immerse yourself into our conversation.

"Make time counts... I feel like if I could express that to people to try to be very aware and conscious in your life as much as you can and just use your time because we got such a short time." - Heidi Sopinka
