Adele ᒪᐢᑿ ᐃᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau

Jewellery, printmaking and wood

A Nehiyaw Métis visual artist, Adele creates work to engage the audience to consider current social and environmental issues. Her intent is to educate from an indigenous perspective and counteract current stereotypes. She uses the mediums of wood carving, beadwork and digital art to reclaim her displaced heritage and language.  Born in BC, far from her family’s raditional territories, the significance of the place and culture she was raised in is an integral part of her story. She was adopted Luk sil loo Clan, Dakelh and trained with Master Carver, Xwalacktun of Squamish Nation.
