My father's last harvested caribou hide inspired the rebirth of my beading practice - one I had begun at the young age of three and yet laid to rest for some twenty years. I was moved to threading coloured beads to share the message gifted to me by my late grandmother Helen Weistche. By way of beading, I braid relations crossing generations reaching toward plant, animal and human relatives alike.
By looking, listening and learning from my family of artisans, especially my mother and the late Gerti Murdoch.
My inspiration to bead an entire hide was from a dream visit of my late Grandmother Helen Weistche. Also, I always admire Christi Belcourt's artwork.
I started at a young age by watching my mother bead and sew moccasins, gloves, slippers, etc for people who requested them.
I paint as a hobby.
