My name is Nancy Potvin, I’m an Anishinaabe Kwe from North Bay, ON with ties to the Kebaowek and Nipissing First Nations. I retired 5 years ago after working in the Indigenous community for over 25 years. I currently reside in beautiful Victoria, BC.

My love for the arts and working with leather has developed over the years and brings me lots of joy. My craft comes from teachings from elders, my older sister, and my cousin whom all worked with leathers. My creative spirit and working with my hands extends into another passion of mine which is music. I play guitar, and write music as well. I play with my sister Sandee, we are known as the Mitchell Sisters. We play in coffee houses, Farmer's Markets and Open Mics within the Victoria area.
