Also in 2015, her work was included in the Portland Art Museum’s Biennial Exhibition, alongside several other important Maine Indian basket makers.
This basket is woven from brown ash with natural as well as turquoise and grey splints, sweetgrass around the rim and the finial, and an antler finial.
