Short description of your art.

I think my art is connected to nature and it comes from there because it is mostly floral. It comes from where my parents are from, the nature as they are full time hunters/trappers.

Where did you learn your art?

I have learnt my sewing, beading and doing imbroidery by watching my mother and other people along the way. I recently self taught painting.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

My inspiration comes from nature and from memories. Memories meaning when I used to see my mother's beading and sewing style.

Have you received any formal training?

I didn't receive any formal training. But, I did learn by watching.

What other art forms do you practice?

I do occasionally Square dance. I can cook traditional food. I try cooking traditional food with spices. I can fix traditional food, small and big game.

Have you ever received any awards or special recognition?

Not yet

Do you sell your work? If so, how?

Yes. I sell it through Facebook and sometimes when someone asks me if I have earrings or something.

Has your art work ever been mentioned in any media?

No.

Please provide any information on your buyers.

Please provide any other information you would like to mention.
