About

Born and raised in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, I am an emerging Indigenous contemporary artist. Using conceptual art, I attempt to lay down the foundations to awaken the public on Indigenous issues. As a multi-disciplinary artist, I speak on many Indigenous issues using sculpture, installation, painting and performance. Recurring themes in most of my work are Aboriginal iconic imagery and the use of red, a colour representing Indigenous People on the Medicine Wheel, which allows me to explore issues of identity, history, and decolonization.

I am a graduate of the Bachelors of Fine Arts, with a Minor in Aboriginal Studies Cum Laude at the University of Ottawa. Furthermore, I am the recipient of the Suzanne Rivard-Le Moyne Scholarship for the class of 2013.

This blog will continue the momentum started in university to advocate for Indigenous resurgence through creating a discourse via the visual arts. If you have any feedback, questions or would even like to commission me please fill out the contact form. Your feedback is much appreciated.
