ARTIST BIO

Bree a nêhiyaw (Cree), Métis, and European descent artist who was born, and currently creates in the unceded and unsurrendered lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. My maternal roots are based in maskotewisipiy (High Prairie, Alberta), Treaty 8.

I am part of the Residential School legacy, with my grandma being a survivor until her passing in 2008. I was disconnected from my Indigenous roots as a child, reconnecting at the age of 25. Since then I have been on a journey of self-identity discovery. I have formal post-secondary education in the fields of Human Resources and Business Management.

I’ve experimented with a number of art mediums over the years including: reupholstering and rejuvenating vintage furniture, painting, drawing, sewing and most recently beading. I primarily bead and work with vintage items which I upcycle for current use. As a young girl, I remember thrift store adventures with Kohkom (my Grandma) and my Mom. I look for high-quality construction and quality fabrics. Although the pieces might be too outdated for fashionable wear today, I make them into something new and fresh to create unique one-of-a-kind art pieces for fashionable wear.

My beading teachings were passed down to me from my sister and have created a bond that heals and connects me to my ancestors.
