"The button blanket was a form of expressing the clan symbols of the person wearing it. The button blanket told a story about the family through images that everyone in the community understood (...) over the course of several years of abstracting Northwest coast art forms, I have focused primarily on the button blanket as a theme to illustrate the idea of adapting traditional materials to more contemporary ones. In a world of changing ideals, the concept of traditional values also transforms its meaning and adapts to the new host society. This serigraph is the abstract representation of all that is good in the city and all that is a natural wonder to my creative side."
