Whapmagoostui First Nation
My name is Vivianne Sheshamush, I am a Cree/Inuit/Scottish visual artist living in a remote community on the Hudson Bay. Being multicultural, it inspires a lot of passion to show other mixed people that they can celebrate the different parts of themselves too. The different cultures of my Ancestors greatly influence my work as well as the stunning landscapes that surround my hometown of Whapmagoostui First Nation.
I am very new to the art scene, struggling with depression and anxiety has always prevented me from pursuing my passions. I started with body painting and it wasn't until my daughters Walking Out Ceremony when I first used acrylics and tried painting on canvas. I am constantly growing and learning and I am loving my journey as an artist.
