Judy Chartrand is a Manitoba Cree artist, born in Kamloops, BC and was raised in a marginalized neighborhood located in Vancouver’s skid row area back in the early 1960s. She is an artist whose work frequently confronts issues of postcolonialism, socio-economic inequity and Indigenous knowledge expressed through the mediums of ceramics, found objects, archival photos and traditional techniques that include beading, tufting and porcupine quilling on hide.
