The following works are a passion project of the artist. The historical and educational nature of the work requires intensive research and consultation. Some pieces reflect Kristi's Métis culture, while others touch on themes such as ecology, spirituality, global peace, or a poem.
Created with a variety of medium, such as sepia ink, metallic inks, watercolour, wax resist, gold leaf or pastel sgrafutto, with embellishments of beads, porcupine quill, hide or velvet.
Note* The 'Forget-Me-Not, Métis Rose' designs are collaborative pieces with cousin, artist Lisa Shepherd.
