Overview

Living for over three decades on Haida Gwaii has informed my knowledge and appreciation for local plants. Most of my current work involves reusing materials or gathering sustainable materials such as grasses, willow, pine, cedar barks and kelp. I also use traditional material such as reed a sustainable vine found in tropical climates.

I work in the field of environmental art installing sixteen-7 foot kelp columns at the Kaay Museum last October. I work outside creating large works of natural material set in the environment.

I love to work on up cycling clothing remaking felted sweaters, hats, button jewellery and closet monsters. I weave with mainly natural materials making them into vessels of all sizes, among my favourite materials are barks, kelp and pine needles.

I have shown my work locally, nationally and internationally. I am a recipient of two Canada Council grants, and a Vancouver Foundation Grant. One such grant allowed me time to experiment and work with kelp and provided the opportunity for me to create unique vessels.
