Catherine is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose work possesses unique form and energy, balancing elements and teachings from traditional Woodland art/Anishinaabe art/culture with contemporary techniques and subjects. With many works reflecting postcolonial messages, each piece aims to create synergy and harmony between these different stylings as a visual effort to build and maintain a balanced and peaceful relationship between her Anishinaabe and European ancestry. Many of her works strive to call to attention the importance of our connection to everything in nature, and respect towards it and all our relatives, particularly animals, plants and insects that are overlooked or whose importance and teachings have been altered by colonial attitudes and viewpoints.
