Nature has a beautiful palette of texture and colour. The Tribal design is made with a combination of found and natural materials and it came together like the ultimate indigenous crafting project. Being born in Canada and spending time with its native people I was always fascinated by their craft.
While I was creating Tribal, I went deep into my imagination to find a picture of what my tribe would wear, should I belong to one. Being a traveler I opened my design up to the global resources of natural objects and used shells from one country, feathers from another and woven fibres from different locations. With today’s technology we get to mix media and create amazing things. This is my variation of the natural environment within a technical and synthetic medium, bridging two of the worlds I live in together into my design.
