Short description of your art.

Been beading for the last 6 years - earrings - lanyards -medallions I began beading when I first started to work for MSDC in waskaganish and it had took my interest.

Where did you learn your art?

Other elders/ workers. After I had left msdc I had learned more beading techniques on my own, and watched YouTube videos to also help me and I had also showed others my techniques I had learned along this beading journey

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

When I get bead orders or it just comes to mind sometimes I just get in the moods to sit down and start beading. I’d like to put positive energy into my work.

What other art forms do you practice?

Sewing, I recently started to teach myself how to sew, making scrunchies and headbands to begin with.

Have you ever received any awards or special recognition?


Do you sell your work? If so, how?

Yes, privately, or get requests to do big orders

Has your art work ever been mentioned in any media?
