As a Métis Cree Heritage artist, the exceptional beadwork articles Sharon produces have roots in Traditional Native women’s artistic practice. They are inspired by the exquisite craft that were created by Grandmother Flora, her sisters, and women artists of her time. She considers her artistic contribution to be part of a cultural continuum of Native women artists and lifeways.
A professional member of the Alberta Craft Council, Sharon has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including Continuum, Well In Hand, and Carrying On, among others. As a curator of fine craft, Sharon has organized: Nimama (ACC), Flowers for Nitanis (City of Edmonton), Through a Woman’s Hand (Lois Hole Hospital for Women), and Wild Berries (Four Lodges Gallery). In 2017, Glenbow featured her original beaded designs in Through the Eye of the Needle.  Devoted collectors of Indigenous fine craft, Sharon and her husband Cam Kootenay are founding members of the Aboriginal Arts Council of Alberta.

Artist Statement
“ Within the domestic realm and places like the YW Hub, I use fine craft to articulate and celebrate relationships. As an Indigenous artist, it is my deepest honour to create ceremonial and liturgical objects. I strive to create products that showcase traditional skill and technique, as well as represent a living and vibrant culture. I believe the transmission of authentic cultural perspective can be achieved through craft and exhibition, and fosters deeper appreciation and understanding between peoples."
