“As a Métis artist, I believe my beadwork reflects both an internal narrative and cultural statement. I am profoundly influenced by artistic and literary works that carry a redemptive quality, work where the artist’s soul is made visible.
As a traditional beadworker living in contemporary times, my technical and aesthetic abilities support the perspectives I am seeking to articulate and relay.”
