Deanna Marie Therriault is an indigenous artist of Mushkegowuk and Anishnabek ancestry and a member of the Fort William First Nation.
Deanna began her artistic career late in life at the age of 40 and has been both working in ink, acrylic and watercolour paint for approximately 3.5 years and has sold her artwork across the continent.
Deanna finds inspiration in the works of the Indian Group Seven, Frida Kahlo, Gustav Klimt. Her subjects are comprised of strong feminine silhouettes and dodemag or Animal clans, and spirit animals done in her unique, detailed line style. Each of her works is accompanied by a “story,” in line with her indigenous lineage. She includes explanation of morality tales, clan teachings, and symbolism in her work.
