In this workshop, Heather Campbell will give a short presentation about her life and work, followed by instruction in her ink wash technique. You can create your own washes to draw on top of later, and a background created by Heather will be provided to draw on top of with pen and nibs.
Heather Campbell is an Inuk artist originally from Rigolet, Nunatsiavut, now based in Ottawa. Heather is primarily a painter and draws on top of ink washes to create dream-like images filled with Inuit imagery. She is also working on her first short documentary film with the NFB about her grandmother, one of the first Inuit teachers. Heather’s work was featured in Resilience, art of Indigenous women displayed on billboards all across Canada. In addition, her piece Methylmercury is part of the exhibition SakKijâjuk: Inuit Fine Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut that will open at the Art Gallery of Windsor in October.
