Where did you learn your art?

No real professional training mostly hands on or YouTube tutorials and some sewing working shops in the community.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

Inspired by my culture and the materials that have an indigenous touch to them. Which I like to make into wearable art.

Have you received any formal training?

No never received formal training but interested in attending in the future.

What other art forms do you practice?

Painting, writing, crafts, revamping old furniture, knitting and quite open to learning on hands type of work.

Yes I’ve sold dresses in the past by personal orders and I hem dresses from time to time.

Has your art work ever been mentioned in any media?

Yes in the Nation about 6 years ago and one of my photos of my work is displayed at one of the hotels in Montreal. Also in some pamphlets for certain organizations promoting cultural activities and events.
