Kim brings over 48 years of experience doing crafts of various mediums. My first teachers were some Elders who were teachings us young ones how to make what we call the snake stitch which are created as necklaces or rings. During her time at educational institution and then being a single mother, her craft skills and the sale of items helped in difficult time.. Over the years, more and more crafts have been added to her skillset which allows the melding of traditional crafts and new mediums. (resin with traditional/cultural images).. She creates from home and also provides craft workshops, time permitting. She currently lives in the City of Peterborough.
