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 born of her
own quest to heal humanity. She is an internationally acclaimed artist
and lives in Edmonton.
