Artist Bio: 

I was born and raised in Tuktoyaktuk, NT, and now live in Inuvik, NT.  I have a lot of appreciation and respect for traditional style ulu knives, and the traditional materials used to make them.  Our elders and ancestors have made ulu knives with materials available to them including re purposed saw blade steel, which is what I prefer to use. 
When I'm creating an ulu, I can't help to imagine the appreciation and pride Inuit men of the past felt as they created a tool that will help himself and his wife and family to prepare food and skins for survival.
Every ulu I create, I dedicate to my mother.. and all our elders.. past and present.
