Meet the Artist: Leah Dorion

Today Rental & Sales Gallery artist Leah Dorion shares a link to her exhibit ‘Thirteen Moons‘ at the Dunlop Art Gallery. ⁠

Leah Marie Dorion is an interdisciplinary Métis artist raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. A teacher, painter, filmmaker and published writer, Leah has received numerous awards and grants and her work is featured in private and public collections. Dorion is a storyteller who uses art as a spiritual expression. Her paintings are influenced by traditional cultural teachings and often incorporate elements of Indigenous beadwork to honour her First Nations and Métis ancestors.⁠
