The owner

Justine Goulet is the founder and primary glass artist of Lake Life Studio. As a passionate art lover and theatregoer, Justine knew at a young age she would work in the arts in some form.

She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance Production from Ryerson University in 2012 and was an apprentice at Canada’s National Ballet School in the wardrobe department. She then moved to Dublin, Ireland for a year where she went on to earn a Masters in Philosophy of Performance Art from Trinity College in 2013.

Returning back to her home on the shores of Lake Huron, she continued working in the theatre industry until she discovered the art of glass fusing. Justine was hired by Bonnie Doone Glass, a small glass fusing company that took her on as an apprentice, where she learned the foundations of glass making.  From there, Justine developed her own style and gained renewed inspiration for writing her own story in the world of glass art.

Lake Life Studio was established in July 2015 with the intention of creating custom glass pieces as well as curating a beautiful space that features various artisans. Glass vessel sinks, glass cabinetry inserts and glass backsplash panels are Justine’s specialty. Collaborating with designers and clients is the most exciting part of Justine’s creative process. She is passionate when it comes to designing and realizing unique art pieces that serve as functional elements for a variety of spaces.

Justine is inspired by her surroundings – our natural world and her heritage. As a Metis woman, she looks to her elders for creative energy and incorporates indigenous influences and animals throughout her work. Coming from a family of artists, craftsmanship and authenticity core values not only seen in Justine’s work, but also in the work of the other artisans she chooses to showcase in the boutique.

When Justine isn’t at the studio, you can find her paddle boarding on Lake Huron, walking her dog Daizy, and spending time with her family and friends. She is also a volunteer energy exchange student at Inner Dawn Yoga Studio and a volunteer costal watcher for The Lake Huron Centre for Costal Conservation.

My Wish For You

Since you didn’t have a blog post ready for the launch of the site, I’m going to steal this opportunity with a few words to the two of you.

I’ve had so much fun working with you from the start of your adventure and even in these short few months, there’s been a lot of laughs (and drooling) watching you grow and share your journey with us. I know in the little time you’ve been the Helmet Free Life girls, you have managed to not only entertain us and become local celebrities but you have made a positive impact on our lives – you’re changing the lives of women with your words of encouragement, inspiration, and spread of (self-) love.

I know that this is just the start of something magical and you only have but to grow from here – there are so many more lives to touch. May you continue to share life unfiltered including the best of the best and even the lows of the lows. You are strong, beautiful, powerful women, mothers, wives, and friends and my wish for you is to continue to share your message so other women can be too.

You two are perfectly imperfect and I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes you. Thank you for taking us along!
