Where did Wheat Gum come from?

On a cold snowy night on our way home from the mountain, my sister and I were teaching our aussi friend some past times of the vast Canadian cultures.  WHEAT GUM.  Farmers in Saskatchewan often will take a moment after a long hard days work in the fields to contemplate and look on with pride at their growing crops - and it's at this moment, when he will nonchalantly pick off some grain of the wheat stalks at his side and begin chewing'.  After chewin' and chewin' and chewin' ... It is a single moment in time when a kernel of grain suddenly blossoms into an unexpected burst of WHEAT GUM!

My Sister the Accountant: "So I tried it!"

Australian: "How does it taste?" 

My Sister the Accountant: "It doesn't taste like Juicyfruit!"

In that moment, we all broke out into shear laughter! And there you have it, WHEAT GUM, EST. MAY 2014.

If you are still wondering what WHEAT GUM tastes like, come visit and have a sample.  We like visitors at WHEAT GUM.  It gets our creative juices bursting!

Celisse Sargent |Principle Photographer & Owner of Wheat Gum Graphics

I am passionate about photography! Since I was a little girl I have loved being behind the camera.  I had my very own camera from the time I was 4 years old.  It was bright orange and well used.  Growing up in a creative home with parents who are design focused, I was encouraged to pursue my creative talents.  Specializing in visual and media arts programs throughout high school, I developed my own unique style that gave me the confidence to pursue my artistic dreams.  

As with many starving artists, I found myself working in an office job for many years that began stealing my artistic soul! A very wise mentor and colleague gave me some advice I will cherish forever, to never settle for less than you are worth.  Pursuing a passion does not have to be a dream, so here I am! One year later, and successfully running my business without the distraction of being pulled in another direction that was stealing my soul! 

When I am not behind the camera you'll find me reading a design magazine, decorating my flat, and exploring my amazing backyard on the west coast of Canada!
