"As a youth, I was unsure of my talents, I found painting painful and difficult because I was unsure of my identity. But my confidence grew when I studied privately with Maliseet artist Shirley Bear and then attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, where 25 years later, in 1997, I was invited to sit on the Board of Governors. I created Red Crane Enterprises as a vehicle to sell my work of original fine art, prints, cards, T-shirts, sculpture and pottery. My work is sold at galleries, shows and retail outlets across North America, as well as in Japan and Europe. I am continually exploring and expanding my horizons, from my home studio to my new Web studio."
