About Us

Hey, I’m Beck! Welcome to my passion space where I connect people with Adventure through feeding self-worth, confidence & self-growth with Adventure Shirt Designs.

Only Time, One-Time Designs

I first started Empowered Empire as a passion project and each Adventure Shirt is created by myself, an adventure lover and local of Tropical North Queensland.

I combine my passion for creativity, adventure and desire to uplift others to create unique Adventure Shirt Designs, each having their own deep meaning. If you’re interested, you can find each story and meaning on my blog page!

Inspired by Love, A loss of my Soulmate

My soulmate & partner Shane passed in an unexpected accident when we were both 25 years of age, thankfully to something he loved & enjoyed doing.

We both loved Nature, Adventure and the Outdoors was a big part of our lives. After Shane passed in 2017, I experienced deep grief and a million challenges. During my years of greif and to this day, I still turn to Outdoor Adventure as a way to heal, overcome life stresses & become more present in the moment which was ultimately a very strong belief Shane had held.

Inspired by Shane’s wisdom & energy, I released my first Adventure Shirt in 2018 called Follow The Sun as a gift for him; available for family, friends & the public. This piece was something beautiful that came out of a dark and challenging time while expressing love, hope and healing. I feel strongly about continuing Shane’s positive influence on the world and this design is part of that.

Later I realised that my freedom to express stories & meaningful messages through art is what I truely enjoy and continued on this journey in hope to uplift others. 

I officially launched Empowered Empire in 2020 as I felt that every Adventure artpiece someone buys is one step closer to connecting that person with Adventure, fueling upliftment & happiness into the world.

A Message from Beck

Thank you to my family, Shane’s family, all our friends and the community for the unconditional support during one of the hardest experiences of my life. During that dark moment, the love and support from others really brought the sunshine back.

I am not the only one who had lost someone I love, Shane is a beautiful soul; a loyal friend, an understanding and encouraging partner, a loving big brother, a handsome son, a playful grandson, a wise knowledgeable thinker, an adventurer, explorer, daredevil, ocean lover… Each of us are grateful to have had you in our lives.

A big thank you to my partner Daley and my furry babies Vasco, Momo & Kevin for the love and support behind closed doors on those darkest days.

Shane, I can’t thank you enough for being all of who you are. You left the most beautiful memories behind for many of us. We miss you every day but know, you are home now. We love you <3
