Shy is a member of the shishalh Nation (Coast Salish) and also has kwakwakáwakw linage. Shy weaves intricate designs-and weaves patterns from her rich cultural background. Her medium is cedar. Shy has passionately been weaving red and yellow cedar since 1999 and continues to explore her art form with tenacity and enjoyment. The innovative patterns used in Shy’s cedar hats are popular and much of her work is sought after for cultural ceremonies. Here in Shy’s homelands of the shishalh nation (Sunshine Coast) Shy is well known for her work and she generally offers weaving courses throughout the year here on the coast and throughout BC. Since the pandemic Shy also provides online teaching and sells a variety of cedar kits also.
