Ojibway / Canada / Craft
Cedar–Eve Peters is a visual artist currently based in Montreal. She is Anishinabae (Ojibway), from Manitoulin Island and Saugeen First Nation, but born and raised in Toronto. She is a self-taught beader, and her work is often inspired by elements of nature, urban landscapes, her dream-world, and the surreal.
Cedar believes exploring identities of Indigenous peoples in the 21st century is important to keeping tradition alive. The colours she uses are bright but rooted in her ancestor’s knowledge. Creating high visibility jewelry, working intuitively and with random patterns are what makes her beadwork unique.
