Karen Wright-Fraser

Artist Bio: 

Karen Wright-Fraser was originally born in Inuvik but has called Yellowknife home for the past 20 years. Bone and antler jewelry, traditional dresses and shirts, dream catchers, painting and drawing are all part of Karen's artistic repertoire. Mainly self taught, Karen carries on her Gwich'in tradition by working with hides, furs, beads and feathers combining contemporary with traditional styles to create unique clothing. She feels a real sense of accomplishment when she finishes a piece and other people are happy with what she has made. Her imagination provides her with her many ideas for colors, shapes, and designs. Karen runs her sewing company, Whisper Willows, out of her home and specializes in custom orders for traditional clothing.
