Spirit Animal Paintings

P. Poitras-Jarrett

I am a Métis artist living in Regina, Saskatchewan. Presently I'm working on a Métis Spirit Animal series of over 28 mixed media acrylic paintings each 36”x40” in size. This series is highly textured and designed with my animal motifs and Métis beadwork art designs created with modelling paste. Beadwork designs are extremely diverse within Indigenous cultures and my art captures the colorful intricate symmetrical designs of the Métis beaders.

My artistic representation of the connections we have with animals, plants and nature is partly derived from the history of my Métis ancestors and our Indigenous kinship connections across the country. The animal’s natural behaviours and ways of being within their habitats helped in writing the meanings. The titles for each Spirit Animal painting symbolize a basic human value that we all possess within us.
