The Hamilton Spectator: Brushstrokes Of Resilience: Jackie Traverse’s Artistic Odyssey

March 26, 2024 — 

Jackie Traverse, a versatile Indigenous artist, expresses her creativity across a myriad of mediums, ranging from oil and acrylic paintings to mixed media, stop-motion animation, and sculpture. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, she proudly identifies as Ojibway from the Lake St. Martin First Nation.

Jackie’s artistic journey traces back to her childhood, where a transformative visit to the Wahsa Gallery at the age of 13 sparked her passion for art. However, it wasn’t until she reached the age of 32 that she took the bold step of submitting her portfolio to the University of Manitoba, ultimately graduating with a diploma in Fine Arts in May of 2009.
