Catherine Blackburn

Dene / Saskatchewan

Catherine Blackburn was born in Ile a la Crosse Saskatchewan, of Dene and European ancestry and is a member of the English River First Nation. Blackburn is a bead artist, painter and jeweller whose work embraces two inspirations in her life-family and culture-and speaks to the complexities of memory, history and identity. Her art merges contemporary concepts with elements of traditional Dene culture that create dialogue between traditional art forms and new interpretations of them.
