Stuffed Bunnies

Created for Help Me, an art show about mental health. The rabbits represent me and my best friend and how we support each other. 2019.

Stuffed lop bunnies made using deerskin, leather, or chamois, with beaded ears. The rabbits reference the beadwork and hide materials used by the craftspeople of my Ojibwe culture, with my own unique twist. As a child, I used to collect stuffed rabbits. I like the soft interaction that these rabbits elicit from people.
