My process of work can be described as a continuous questioning and understanding of the way in which my tradition as a First Nations woman influences the way I conceptualize art. One pivotal aspect of the work I am creating is the traditional labor of beading and how it can be applied to different mediums of art. I am researching these approaches though film, photography, and performance. I am interested in art as a process of making a difference in the understanding of the culture I come from, with its stories, traditions, and the historical and personal trauma.
