Short description of your art.

Short documentaries Interviews Simple equipment use

Where did you learn your art?

Always enjoyed filming and edited. Everything is now pretty much accessible and of decent quality with a smart phone and a few gadgets. Mostly film and edit personal material for family. Was selected to shoot with Wapikoni a few times. Looking into online short programs/weekend trainings when available. Photography also as a side hobby.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

In the moment. Once I get into it I get lost in the project. You know you’ve found your passion when time flies.

Have you received any formal training?

Unfortunately no, not yet. I learn as I go and with different mentors.

What other art forms do you practice?

Photo, micro painting and antler carving.

Have you ever received any awards or special recognition?

No

Do you sell your work? If so, how?

I have had some work sold at the local heritage center and during the Christmas holidays.

Has your art work ever been mentioned in any media?

Wapikoni’s website “Every Dog Has a Story”
