“My name is Lynne Biles, and I am Anishinaabe (Ojibway Peoples) of The Batchewana First Nations: traditional land located along the eastern shores of Lake Superior from Batchewana Bay to Whitefish Island in Northern Ontario. I also have French Canadian roots.
I moved to Prince George with my husband 40 years ago. We just love it here. We have raised our three children and have spent lots of time outdoors fishing and camping. Prince George has so much to offer if you love the outdoors.
I have been beading since I was 13 years old. It is very healing and relaxing. I love trying new patterns and creating them also. I love traditional beading as well as beading animals, flowers, and combining fun colours and designs together.”
Each piece of Lynne’s work is uniquely handcrafted, and we are proud to support her.
