Bamboo Circle Scarf - Honouring Our Life Givers
ANISHINAABE by Sharifah Marsden, Anishinaabe
“My artistic life started at a young age. I began with painting, and I also loved to create floral and geometric beadwork designs on traditional pow wow regalia. One of the earliest teachings from my mother was to continue creating images that relate to my culture, in order to maintain my connection to my Anishinaabe heritage, and for my identity to endure throughout formal training.
My art tells women’s stories, showcasing the beauty and creativity of life.”
-Sharifah Marsden, Anishinaabe
