Lorraine Besito

Ojibwa (Saugeen)

(1936- )

Lorraine was born in 1936 on the Parry Island Reserve. She has been doing quillwork since she was a young girl. Her mother taught her the craft and, after many years of study, Lorraine now does quill tufting as well as regular quill work. She collects all her own raw materials and her boxes show a variety of designs including the traditional geometric and star patterns as well as beautiful floral and animal depictions. Lorraine and her daughter Sharon Johns are two of the very few quillwork artists on the Saugeen Reserve on Lake Huron, Ontario.
