I am a Coast Salish artist. I was born in 1970 and raised on the S’amun’a Reserve in the Cowichan Valley. Raised by my grandparents and have learned the value and importance of Culture and Language. For the past 15 years I have been creating unique and creative Coast Salish Art. Working in many different mediums such as wood, graphic design, gold and silver jewelry, clothing, glass and drums. I continue to create modern pieces yet I am committed to the traditional style of Coast Salish Art. My work can be found locally as well as throughout the world. In addition to my art I work with our youth as a Language Cultural Teacher. My passion is sharing the legacy of our elders and the sacred teachings the young people.
The Cowichan Valley Regional District is a broad geographic region stretching from the Malahat to North Oyster and from the Cowichan Lake to Thetis Island.
The region's artists are represented by 5 sub-regional arts councils with support from the CVRD Arts and Culture Division
