ARTIST STATEMENT

As a Passamaquoddy artist, every time I create something new I’m reminded it’s not new. Our families and peoples have been here for over 13,000 years and everything I make is building on their legacies. All that comes from me is made possible from their knowledge of our homelands. To do as my ancestors did is to know them. To see the art they created is to hear their whispers. My work continues to let their stories flow while reminding us of the hardships, strengths, and love that allowed us to be here today as Wabanaki People.
