Eclipse Shoppe's official graphic T! This beautiful hummingbird design was created by the one and only, Rosary Spence, a well-recognized Indigenous singer whom we had the honour of collaborating. This artwork was brought to life by Haley Gelinas, an Ontario local theatre artist. Check out her Etsy shop, Bella by Haley for more goodies!
