David J. Brooks made a name for himself as one of the first contemporary Mi'kmaq artists in Nova Scotia.
He dedicated his life to art, and shared his passion with his two daughters, Sarah and Chelsea.
Although, he never wanted his creative vision to shape theirs.
David's sudden death deeply affected this close-knit family.
And marked a turning point in his eldest daughter's life.
Now, Chelsea Brooks is committed to making a living from her art while bringing her own flair to the canvas.
