Unmasking Psoriasis

Support and Resources for those living with
psoriasis and for the health care community

About us
Margaret was bar tending an event when one of the customers saw her hands and refused to accept his drink. Devastated, she spoke with Dr. Hawkins, her dermatologist, about the consequences of this lack of understanding. Together they decided they could make an effort to change this reality by fund-raising to raise awareness.

People living with psoriasis are often debilitated and stigmatized. Even in the the health care community there can be challenges in understanding the disease and finding the right treatment path. This organization has been initially set up to provide support in the form of discussion forums, resource links, and information sessions.

SIGA – Original
KEVIN PEE-ACE artwork

ARTIST STATEMENT:
My current style depicts traditional floral motifs reminiscent of beadwork, a homage to my late kokom, who created beautiful works on moss bags, moccasins, and saddles. This new style is a modern fusion of two worlds, one traditional and one contemporary. The importance of family is prominent throughout the works, The vibrant colours represents the joy of life, it is meant to inspire hope, success, and happiness. These paintings are a tribute to my late mother who was my guide throughout my life, my late Grandmother for her strength in cultural beliefs and traditions, and my children for the inspiration they give me, Meegwetch.
