Cynthia's Story: Cynthia is a Cree woman with Scottish ancestry, born and raised in Norway House, Manitoba, and now lives in St Andrews, Manitoba. She learned to bead and design moccasins the traditional way in 2016 and fell in love with this art form.  She began making beaded moccasins as gifts for her family and soon expanded her passion by offering her original designs to the public.

Cynthia is very passionate about designing traditional native wears and respects the materials she uses come from Mother Earth, a teaching passed on by her late Father.   She has fond memories learning to sew with her mother at an early age and feels very grateful for the precious teachings. Fishing, hunting, trapping and living off the land was a way of life in Cynthia's upbringing as her father was a commercial fisherman, trapper and hunter.

Cynthia sells her one of a kind designs at The Gwen Fox Art Gallary Gift Shop in Selkirk, Manitoba, and The Heard Museum Shop in Phoenix Arizona, as well as designing custom orders.  She looks forward to continue designing as this art form gives her a great sense of cultural pride and she plans to offer public workshops in the near future keeping this traditional art form alive.  Cynthia continues to work with the Native Elders to ensure her work remains traditional .  She has a strong dedication to providing high quality and unique pieces of art.
