Artist Statement

As a Haida Jewelery Artist, I carve the stories of my ancestors in copper, silver and gold pieces.


I am a member of the Haida Nations and my clan is Tsit Gitanee. As a women in a traditionally male dominated field, I design from a women’s perspective and create feminine and contemporary pieces while maintaining the integrity and tradition of form-line design which the Haida are world renowned for.

My jewelery has been showcased at the Bill Reid Gallery, and I have donated artwork to benefit the Strathcona Community Center’s Preschool Program.

I graduated from the Northwest Coast Jewelery Arts program in April 2011.

Although I also paint, make drums and do prints, I truly love to incorporate modern jewelery designs with traditional work as well as combining Celtic and scroll work to soften the lines.
