Beading is my life’s passion and picking up a needle opens the door into my own little world. My work is done, primarily, using my signature modified square stitch for strength and durability while creating pieces that fuel the imagination. Pieces that bond intense pride in art and heritage, as well as uniqueness of design. Diversification allows me the freedom to lay down the needle and pick up a file for smoothing and sizing bone and horn, or a glovers needle for sewing hide. The freedom to bring ancestral work into the future while maintaining the quality of the traditional.
