  Artist Statement

Raised in a family and community rich with artistic talent, I was inspired at an early age to learn Coast Salish Art. My life's commitment as an artist is to work in Coast Salish traditional forms and style and play with its boundaries. This has created a unique style that I hope will inspire others within our community to explore their own creativity. I especially hope the next generation will remember their culture and history and bring it into the present. In art I find a place of healing and nourishment for my heart and soul.”
