Since 1988 I have researched and produced articles of quillwork, moosehair and beadwork pertaining to items
by various native nations from pre-contact on. In addition, I fingerweave, twine and make clothing.
During the summers I attend various living history programs and F&I War Re-enactments.
I have had the pleasure of making some articles for museums. But my greatest satisfaction comes from the school programs
and talking to the visitors at the events about the native culture and the items they used.
