To talk to her, you wouldn’t think the quiet needleworker Karen Nicloux was once in the upper echelons of our local drug circuit.

She was one of two debut artists chosen to display work at the newly opened Art House Carcross, a permanent visual showcase to promote Yukon art in the Carcross Commons in partnership with Carcross/Tagish First Nation and Southern Lakes Artists Collective, among others.

To view a sample of Nicloux’s work in Whitehorse, take a look at the Yukon crest hanging in Lorraine Joe’s Indian Craft Shop on Main Street, or meet the artist in person at the upcoming holiday craft fairs. Nicloux is also taking special orders for Christmas via her page Facebook.com/knicloux. Allow 10 days for production.
