Contemporary North American Indigenous Artists Interview · 12 March 2012
I was recently interviewed by Eliza Gregory for the Contemporary North American Indigenous Artists blog. Eliza is a graduate student at Portland State University located in Portland, Oregon and as a part of her couse on Contemporary Native Art interviewed me for her blog post. Instructor Wendy Red Star created the course to inform students about Contemporary Native Arts. As part of the class students created the Contemporary North American Indigenous Artists blog, which will archive student interviews with Native artists, and hopefully help to introduce the larger public to contemporary Native American and First Nations artists. The course teaches students about Contemporary Native Arts through readings, lectures, fieldtrips, screenings, and by connecting students one on one with Native artists to learn first hand from the artists about their work.
It was a great pleasure working with Eliza and Wendy, be sure to check out the rest of the amazing artists interviewed for this blog!

until it’s time for you to go pt. 1 · 25 October 2011
These are some Instagrams from my time here in Dawson. I can’t believe it is almost coming to an end. I will update with more pics once I get back to Vancouver, there is much editing to be done as I took tons of photos. Dawson is such a beautiful inspiring place, the people and the places (the pit) have definitely left an impression on me. I’ll be back. And I got some work done too!
Buffy says it best:
Yes we’re different, Worlds apart, We’re not the same
We laughed and played, at the start, like in a game
You could’ve stayed, outside my heart, but in you came
And here you’ll stay, until it’s time, for you to go
sundogs & dempster highway · 4 October 2011
Went on a roadtrip about 200 kms up the Dempster Highway through Tombstone Territorial Park. Saw some stunning views!
Siiiiigh. I’m in a magical place.

Dawson has charmed me. I see now how easy it is to fall in love with this place…
time flies · 31 August 2011
In 3 weeks, I will be heading to Dawson City, Yukon for a residency at Klondike Institute of Art & Culture (KIAC). I’ve known about this residency since June, 2010, but now the date is quickly approaching and I have so much to prepare for. I’ve never been to the northern territories and I am really looking forward to the experience.

Pimaskweyaw Catalogue · 23 July 2011
I received these catalogues back in May or June from the folks at Gallery 101 in Ottawa from the exhibition Pimaskweyaw curated by Leanne L’Hirondelle and Amber-Dawn Bear Robe.
Thanks to Gallery 101 (Ottawa) and Urban Shaman (Winnipeg)! The catalogues look so slick!
