Meet Sarah Vezina (left) and Jill Davis (right), two inseparable souls from the small town of Dalhousie, New Brunswick. Their paths intertwined from childhood, sharing neighbourhoods, bus rides, babysitters, and even a bike— a testament to their unbreakable bond and shared experiences.

Their journey of togetherness didn’t just stop at childhood adventures; it evolved into a harmonious blend of creativity and intellect, leading them to leave their corporate confines to embark on a journey of artistic exploration together.

Octopied Mind is the brainchild of their merged creativity and essence, a canvas where their unique and vulnerable graphic art comes to life. It’s not just a brand; it’s a reflection of their shared visions and the melting pot of their innovative spirits.
