Powers Provisions is an online storefront created by Gretchen Powers (@gpowersfilm) and her wife Kaleigh Wood (@kalesthecook). When Kaleigh left for Officer Candidate School in July of 2017, Gretchen dove into a film project she had been dreaming of for months and one after another passion projects (unfunded, joy-fueled trips/stories), followed.
Her goal was always to seek places where she pushed the boundaries of her comfort zone in order to find peace and happiness and capture the essence of the location, first with photographs and videos and second with yarn and beads.
Powers Provisions sells prints and postcards of images created on these trips, as well as knitted hats and beaded rings inspired by the steely blues and bright whites from the Matanuska Glacier, rusts and golds from the desert of Utah, and autumnal earthy shades from mountains in Maine. Each of these places helped Gretchen develop her own independence and inspired all of the work she has produced in the last year. Alongside these goods, Kaleigh will be sharing her favorite recipes of her classic south meets the last frontier cuisine, cooking tips, and regaling you with tales of their Alaskan adventures on the blog.
Creating art, crafting and cooking keep us grounded in the chaos of military life and we’ve started this site as a way to share more of our lives with you, our dear friends. We are excited to see where this new chapter takes us!
