  Artist Statement

“Being surrounded by Haida art developed into my love for the art form. I learned by watching older artists and by practising and doodling. Studying Haida art and culture resulted in a journey of self discovery of finding out about my family, community  and myself. My paintings are very personal as they reflect the ongoing connection of my identity to my culture. Each painting takes me another step forward and offers inspiration, sanctuary and healing.”
