Our artistic work is multi-disciplinary including digital and analogue making, from birch-bark biting, beadwork and print-making to digital illustration, rendering and sculpture. These pieces appear in public spaces, national collections, and in people’s homes. We integrate traditional ways of artmaking, passed down through generations, into contemporary contexts by using different materials and techniques made available to us today and allowing those materials to help inform the creation of the work itself.
Emily Akikodjiwan Brascoupe-Hoefler is a mixed media artist and educator who creates pieces of art inspired from her family and community’s teachings and her experiences on the land with her father and grandparents. Through the process of reclaiming lost art practices and traditions she is weaving new cultural understanding and healing into her work.
Claire Brascoupe is an Algonquin artist with experience in digital media and public art. She looks to find modern ways of interpreting traditional storytelling.
Mairi Brascoupe is a graphic designer, illustrator and producer. Inspired by land-based learning and intergenerational knowledge sharing, she takes traditional forms of creating and integrates it with her own perspectives and creative skills to highlight the importance of our current day relationship with the land.
We incorporate our traditional stories and worldview into our art in order to bring Anishinabeg representation into the public space. The overall goal of our collective artistic practice through the work we have collaborated on is to bring Indigenous design and knowledge into the public realm where it can be seen, shared, engaged with, elicit questions and facilitate understanding, connection and inclusion while centering our Indigenous kin, past, present and future.
The Three Sisters Artist Collective completed 3 murals in 2022 - a Seven Grandfather Teachings mural, wisdom mural, and a land based mural. We have several exciting projects coming - stay tuned!
