Hello! I’m Re or Reanna Lorraine Art. I am a Metis/ Cree artist from amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton). My work ranges from textured abstract acrylics to illustrated skulls/ skeletons in ink using pointillism. However, majority of my work revolves around my Indigenous heritage. I like to use my work to educate others about historical and contemporary issues revolving around Indigenous peoples, all the while, sharing the beauty that surrounds the culture, such as the floral Metis beadwork.
I have always been into art; however, it was not till I was in university that I got serious about it. I had a professor who challenged me to always think bigger and to think of myself as a professional artist. The Whyte Ave Art Walk was my very first big show and it remains my favourite years later.
Currently, I am finishing up a degree in Secondary Education at the U of A (expected graduation: December 2019). My major is Art Education and my minor is Native Education. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Native Studies and have worked as an Indigenous Artist in Residence, as well as an independent art instructor. Through these experiences, I have developed workshops and various lessons. You can contact me and find more of my work here…
