I am from Neyaashiinigmiing Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nations and the Delaware Nation at Moraviantown. I have an eclectic range of interests and experiences from which to draw inspiration; a love of creativity in all its forms; a love of culture and the similarities/differences between us all, which makes this world so beautiful.I am inspired by pen & ink fairy tale illustrations, the female form & nature motifs of art nouveau and art deco, the connection of spirit between us and nature of indigenous art, the images/icons/emblems of indigenous culture, and depicting my emotions relating to family/history/current affairs. My favourite medium is dipped pen and ink, especially blue ink: blue like at twilight a time of transition, blue like the water which is women's privilege to cherish and protect.
