About

I was born in Chilliwack, British Columbia and I’m a proud member of Onion Lake Cree Nation, SK. 
 
I worked in the corporate world in Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan for 32 years.  I left the corporate world in 2014 and focused on becoming a full time artist.
 
My early work as an artist was in realism using primarily oil and watercolour.  I have emerged as a self-taught pointillism artist using acrylics with many of my works focusing on my Indigenous background.  In addition to my painting, my other interests are creating smudge fans, medicine bags and dreamcatchers.
 
I am an internationally recognized Cree artist with works shown in Italy, Germany, England, South Africa and many locations across Canada. 
 
In addition to my work being displayed in galleries, I am very community minded and am involved in local and regional art shows, craft shows and pow wows.
 
I am honoured to have been nominated several times and have won awards relative to my artwork and my business, Delree’s Native Art Gallery.
 
I recently relocated to the southern interior of British Columbia and continue to derive artistic inspiration from the beauty of the nature that surrounds me! 

“I feel that Pointillism promotes the beauty of our culture and traditions in the sense that it appears like beadwork on canvas; it reflects our history, dance, and songs.”

Let's meet!

One of the best things about being an artist is meeting people (Covid rules apply) by conducting one on one or group classes in person or online, where I teach my style of pointillism. You can also find me at various art shows and markets in the region. 

I love conducting my Seven Scared Teaching classes online to organizations, classrooms or groups wanting to know more about my paintings and their cultural significance!
