- Denise Russ
Denise works a full-time job and wishes she had more time to devote to weaving. Still, she usually has some kind of project in the works, either something for herself or something that a customer has ordered. Denise has done many different kinds of projects, and some of her artwork has ended up in museums or as part of a dance group’s traditional costume. Denise has also taught weaving in various capacities over the years and especially enjoys teaching school children this traditional art form.
Denise’s culture is very important to her. Her Haida Gwaii home is very much intertwined with that culture. “It’s the best place on earth!” she declares. When she isn’t busy working or weaving, she likes to spend time outdoors, harvesting wild food or walking on the beach and just enjoying all that nature has to offer.
