My inspiration comes from the Peterborough Petroglyphs, using the story of the /anishinaabe/ trickster /nanaaboozhoo/ as teacher lessons and stories. I create one of a kind jewelry using recycled silver in the form of forks, spoons, knives; and cut stones from my own unique collection acquired over the years. My sculptural work combines traditional mediums such as bone and turquoise with discarded modern materials. I take inspiration from the traditional ways that respectfully use all materials from mother earth and I seek to create objects that keep the stories alive, motivate us to learn the culture and realize that Aboriginal people are not relics of an ancient past.
