Inspired by her paternal and maternal Great Grandmothers, Amber then took the time to learn to make moccasins and other regalia items. Recently, Amber took up the art of moose and caribou hair tufting learning from various community workshops. Amber is passionate at showcasing her distinct cultures in her artwork by incorporating contemporary and traditional designs and mediums.
