About the artist:

Shawnee Kruger is a Coast Salish Halq'eméylem teacher and local artist born and raised in Chilliwack BC. She has been teaching the language for 5 years and continues to do so. She has taught at her local reserve, Shxwha:y Village, worked with her university and is now Currently working as a Language Coordinator at Sts'ailes.

As a language teacher she felt that it was important to incorporate her art skills into her work while using traditional colours and techniques. She loves to work with traditional materials such as Cedar branches, Cedar bark, wood tones, feathers and shells. She has a very unique style; her art work is hard to miss with her bold colour choices. She combines modern and traditional styles by creating art pieces such as epoxy to make coasters and jewelry. Her signature work is beading onto hats making a plain item transform into a one-of-a-kind work of art!

Shawnee hopes to inspire fellow local artists to follow their dreams. This is proof that no matter where you come from or where you have been you can make a difference. Follow her journey @shawneeereneebeads
