Tan'si/ Hello, my name is Reanna Savard. I am a Cree/ Metis artist from Amiskwaciwâskahikan/ Edmonton, Alberta. I would describe my style as being bright, colourful and bold! I like to paint/ sculpt/ illustrate anything from pop art to dinosaurs to more serious topics such as Indigenous issues. I believe art should tell a story and evoke emotion. If it's something as simple as evoking a smile because the viewer simply enjoys the image then I can say I've done my job.
My more serious pieces I use to educate others on topics that they may be unaware of. In my free time, I hold an Artist in Residence postion at an Edmonton Highschool. I use the knowledge that I've gained from my Bachelor of Arts degree in Native Studies to teach the students. This knowledge is then used in various art pieces.
I've displayed all over Alberta, including the Banff Centre, but this is my first time at Art Walk! Stop by my booth in front of Army & Navy and say hi or tan'si (hello in Cree)!
