Many generations of creative makers are in my inherited lineage as a Kwakwaka’wakw and British woman. My traditional name is łlilawikw. It was gifted to me by our people through our Potlatch system and includes me in a long line of traditions fought for and celebrated. Its meaning translates to English as Gatherer of the People.

Sea Wisdom Design is a space I use to form relationships with deep meaning through symbols, imagery, and a desire to connect. It has been deeply life changing to see the power this art has to heal, connect, and grow, and to see it cherished by those who feel the same love for the land, ocean, and culture of the coast that we all share.

On my life path as an artist and adventurer I have been called to draw on my lineages for grounding, guidance, and growth. I ask those walking their own path to join me as we carve out spaces of celebration for who we are.
