Dragonfly Studios hosts art

Local artist opens Dragonfly Studios in Hagensborg

Local artist and entrepreneur Tahirih Goffic has transformed the former Coast Mountain News office into an amazingly engaging place.

Local artist and entrepreneur Tahirih Goffic has transformed the former Coast Mountain News office into an amazingly engaging place that is sure to delight any visitor.

Following a dream that had been simmering for years, Tahirih said that although she had planned it for ‘five or so years down the road,’ the move by CMNews made it an instant possibility, so she grabbed it.

Having always been drawn to the creatures, Tahirih followed her instincts and named the shop ‘Dragonfly Studios, Gallery, Gifts and Café.’

“I’ve always felt a connection with dragonflies, and always called my business Dragonfly Studios way before I ever had a storefront,” she explained, “I once got out of my car on the Chilcotin to stretch my legs in a beautiful spot, and was surrounded by a dragonfly swarm. It was amazing and beautiful!”

The store now hosts a variety of local art, handmade jewelry, photographs, paintings, and more. Tahirih, already a well-known artisan baker and caterer (anyone who has ordered her stunning cakes can attest) is also serving specialty coffees, old-fashioned milkshakes, iced tea, and an array of baked goods.

To find out more, stop by at her place. The bright sign is visible from Highway 20, just before Walker Island road heading east. Hours are from 8am – 4:30pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
