Jane Ash Poitras was born in 1951 in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta. Her
interest in art and her native heritage has evolved simultaneously and has
become the prime focus of her career. She firmly believes that her work as an
artist can assist in re-establishing a common pride and identity for North
America's first peoples as well as providing a greater understanding of first
nations culture to all who view her art. Her imagery is narrative in nature and
is built upon a combination of symbols of her own and other Native heritages,
modern culture and the language of contemporary fine art. Her powerful imagery
is borne of her own quest to heal humanity. She is an internationally acclaimed
artist and lives in Edmonton.
