Rooted, an artist-in-residency with Tory Manywounds
March 27 - April 3
I am thankful for the opportunity to bring my artwork to the city I grew up in. “Rooted” will be my first artist in residence showing.
The time I have will showcase my story and more of being biracial. My roots run into this province deep, as I am Indigenous with blood from Siksika and TsuuTina nations. I am also half Jamaican. History directly from the transatlantic slave trade to Jamaica.
I have been an artist for what seems forever and shown my work from 2007 at various points in my life.
I hope you will join me and share your story or come and learn more about the shared experience many biracial people have.
