Artist statement

Growing up as a non-status Cree on my mom's side and Métis on my dad's side, and even being accepted into the Dakelh culture, Luk sil yoo clan. I’ve always lived in-between cultures. Never really accepted because I'm not what people are accustomed to.

This project is a reflection of everything falling in-between.  The utility boxes, the animals, and the people who helped me create this art, even the art itself. My style is Dakelh and Cree, similar to Haida but it’s own. The animals portrayed, make their lives in the diminishing spaces that fall in-between our continued expansion. The youth who participated, live in-between spaces of society, dealing with issues that people do not wish to see. The utility boxes live in the unseen in-between also. Never being really noticed, yet all are integral to the fabric of life here in Vancouver.
