About Me

Carie McBain

Eel River Bar First Nation

My name is Carie McBain. I am from Eel River Bar First Nation, a wife to my amazing husband Jason, Mom to my beautiful daughter Isabella and a proud traditional Mi’kmaq dancer and artist.

Growing up, I always wanted to learn more about my culture and traditions. I am a self taught artist and am always willing to share techniques with others.

My love for beading and learning traditional dancing has been lifesaving. I suffer from PTSD and beading and dancing has truly grounded me.

My goal was to learn to bead and sew in order to create my own traditional regalia. This is where Carie McBain Creations came about. I bead to share my love, passion and stories.

I am grateful to run a successful side business involving what I am most passionate about.

The next step in my journey is helping provide an area for artists to purchase their own supplies.
