I have done beadwork ever since I was young teenager. I am now retired from my work for nearly 40 years at CBC in broadcasting radio and television, and managing the CBC North-Quebec unit. Since my retirement I’m interested in so many art forms and taking courses in sewing. I’ve been making handbags for over 2 years. I’m also into sewing other various products, and have started quilting recently.
I learned beadwork from my late mother. I had trading from professionals in the field of radio and television, and went to Ryerson for summer courses. I have taken various sewing classes from Penelope in St-Hubert. I’m presently taking different courses as they become available.
My inspiration comes from finished products, watching videos of different products and try them.
For broadcasting, I got a lot of trading over the years from professionals in the field ex: storytelling, interviewing techniques, hosting skills, how to put stories together, etc As I said previously I’m taking sewing courses using different fabrics.
