Nation/Clan: Seneca Nation/Snipe Clan
Media: Beadwork

Artist Resume:

About 4 years ago, a fellow NRAG member showed me how to bead earrings and I’ve also taken a few classes. I’ve read and taught myself how to loom and do peyote. This year will be my 4th year at vendoring which I enjoy sharing my craft and culture.

Artist Statement:

I bead in honor of my mom. We had started bead classes before she got sick and the Creator called her home 5 yrs. ago. With determination and belief in myself, I continue to learn all I can about beading, feeling a sense of purposes and pride. Beading has become my passion, my way of life,my medicine.
