Stormie's artwork represents her legacy using her own portrait facing the portrait of her paternal grandfather, Billy Diamond. Her symbols represent her Cree Culture and Language, something Stormie feels has been passed down to her by her grandfather the Late Billy Diamond. She symbolizes Cree Culture with her use of the medicine wheel, Siigabon (the traditional way of cooking Goose over a fire), and the hides.
