Janice Toulouse Shingwaak

A Descendent of Ojibwa Chief Shingwaak  of Garden River, Janice Toulouse-Shingwaak Lives and works in Vancouver. She was born and raised on the Serpent River First Nations and received her art education at the Emil Carr college of Art and Design, Vancouver and Concordia University, Montreal (Master of Fine Arts, 1985)

She was attracted to the Toulouse area of southern France, where she spent time in the early nineties, absorbing the lessons of European modernism without losing sight of her cultural and artistic roots. Her large paintings employ soft lyrical washes of colour and wisps of images, often combined with overlays of scrims, creating three dimensional fields of colour.

Toulouse-Shingwaak's most recent project is her collaboration with Loonard Beam. The Travelling Alter Native Medicine Show which was organized by Grunt Gallery In Vancouver. She has been featured in solo exhibitions with Grunt and Western Front in Vancouver, Galerie Parent and Espace Saint Cyprien in Tolouse, Fulgence Gallery, Paris . This is her first exhibition in Sault Ste Marie
